I use to do this with the Zeagle tech harness, very similar to the ranger harness. I needed to remove the back lumbar pad. Once the tank bands were lined up I simply placed the bcd over the bolt posts and sandwiched the bc with the BP. It really provided alot of stability for dbl's and worked very well. Get rid of the dbl length tank bands you will not need them.
I tried it once with small doubles, and I didnt like it. The first chance I got, I bought a harness for the BP and a wing. I believe that a BP&W is the best way to dive doubles... Although I do know a few people who have the Ranger or the Tech and have had good luck diving with doubles... So, I guess try it out, and then see if you like it!!!
