That addendum to the instructions was written in 2004 and needs an update.
For 2005~2006, Ford eliminated the unused branch of the gray/black wire that went to the SJB in 2004. The gray/black still originates at the PCM and still goes to the back of the instrument cluster and also to the 4WD module (if equipped). If you have a 2004~2006 4x4, the 4WD module should be next to the radio where the GEM was on the 2001~2003 Ranger shown in John's instructions.
For 2007~2008, the Ranger got the 170-pin PCM and new harnesses. The new VSS color is violet/orange and it is under the hood between the PCM and the speed control servo.
