How to manage cargo on Ford Ranger pickup

Ford Ranger pick-up comes equipped with few cargo management features that are both convenient and offer a little extra security when carrying items in the rear cargo bed.

Cargo Tie-down Hooks

You’ll find cargo tie-down hooks in the truck bed area, three on each side, for a total of six. These are helpful in preventing items such as recreational gear and furniture from sliding around.

Cargo Lamp

A cargo lamp integrated into the center, high-mounted stop lamp illuminates the cargo bed, which helps make it easier to locate and load items in the dark. To turn it on and off from inside the cab, just press the box lighting button on the dashboard right next to the steering wheel on the left. After a period of time, they’ll turn off gradually.

Bed Utility Package

For additional convenience and bed protection, a bed utility package is available that includes a durable, drop-in liner that makes it easier to slide items in and out of the bed while also protecting the metal bed underneath.

12V Power Port

Plus, a 12 volt power port inside the bed gives you the ability to charge items, like battery operated tools and more. You could also outfit your Ranger’s cargo bed to fit your active life with a rack system from Ford accessories.
