To send it or not to send it, that is the question.
i've been wondering this and i work on a farm and i have to move pipe on a trailer, sometimes i'm the only one moving the pipe and i have to have the truck crawl so you can keep going without stopping, and my ranger doesn't have much power so would a doubler benefit that?

It would slow things down, sure, but that's an awful lot of work to accomplish that. You could put lower gears in your axles if you wanted, they do make down to 4.56 gears for the D28 and 7.5. Or buy an older full size truck with a 4 speed w/ granny gear and small tires... or a small tractor.

I don't know. Are you working for someone else or is this your operation? Doesn't seem to make sense to make any investment at all if you're working for someone.

im working for family because they own the farm, and im asking because we have trucks there but sometimes two are being used and the other is somewhere else, and the only other truck is a fullsize cab diesel that cant turn in small places
