2 door power locks and keyless entry
The one I bought upgrades the keyless entry system to a Directed Electronics keyless entry system, who makes Clifford and Viper alarm systems, for $10 more:
2 door power locks w/ 712T keyless entry
The A-1 kit includes everything you need, except maybe a few washers or nuts to space out the power lock actuators from the door. Other than that you are good to go. It's not too difficult to install, it just takes a little time to tear everything to peices (door panels, the dash panel under the steering wheel), mount the actuators, bend the rods precisely to line up w/ the lock rods, time the actuators, run the wires through the boots to the doors, tie everything up out of the way, mount the relays, get it all back together, etc. Where you have to mount the actuator rods in the door on the Rangers, it's pretty difficult to get in there to time (center) them w/ the locks, and tighten the keepers. Kind of working blind. Other than that, it's pretty straightforward, just time consuming.
The keyless entry fob on the latter system I purchased is not much bigger than the black part on your Ranger key. pretty nice stuff:
