From what I understand the Ranger II (and the Ranger II was the shorter version of the Ranger - there's a Ranger for sale in LA on Craigslist now) became the FWC Eagle. In size it is about the same. Compared to other older FWC's it has a longer cabover almost like the current extended bed cabover. Most Ranger II's came with the "wings" over the rear bed sides and tail lights. The ATC Bobcat and the FWC Eagle are for similar size trucks. I believe the Bobcat is 2" wider on each side for a total of 4" greater width.

This is all from memory so I'd be happy to be corrected.

All in all, they are all pretty darn close.

Thanks Ski.I thought the Ranger II was similar to a Bobcat/Eagle.

Cosmetically, the only differences I know of were the off white siding, dark cabinet laminate and of course the ridiculous wings. Aside from standard updates/upgrades 4WC added over the years (upper storage cabinet, propane & water level monitors, etc) they are basically the same and have the exact same footprint, dimensions, and measurements.

FWC heading east on Hwy 178 in Inyokern, crossing over Hwy 395, I was too far behind to get any additional details, and I wasn't continuing in the same direction.Just shamelessly uping my message count.

Last Monday, going north on I-5 between Roseburg and Cottage Grove. I was lumbering home after a week in the Trinity Alps Wilderness and a couple in a shiny Toyota and FWC sprinted by, waving an encouraging thumbs-up. Howdy. Better late than never?

Today about 2 pm, heading west on the Mt. Bachelor road (west of Bend, OR), near Bachelor: a small ATC (I think) on a compact pickup.
May have been a former co-worker of mine who has something like this combo...:huh:

I was headed home from a nice loop hike in the Three Sisters Wilderness -- a retired guy weekday privilege...before the area becomes overrun with Labor Day tourists. :rolleyes:
Oh well...hoards of tourists are the lifeblood of the Bend/Central Oregon economy.
