All in all i think these handles are the solution to the handle breaking problem.
I know this post is a little old, but I just got my 2001 Ranger back on the road after being out of commission for over a year (transmission).
You can ask my co-workers about my door handles breaking. I ranted about it from time to time. Thanks for posting that eBay link. It's still an active item on eBay. I ordered two of those, and I ordered a tailgate handle as well.
