My dad just picked up a clean 2000 Ranger 4x4. It has all owner manuals and seems to have been well cared for. It is missing the spare tire key. Are they universal ? If not how do we go about getting a key ? Thanks !!!!
They are on Ebay from time to time. Keep an eye out there for one. They should be universal between trucks. Not sure about what else they fit. As for getting a key for it, a locksmith might be able to pick it, if he's willing to play in such a small area.
At the most, parts 3 and 4 in the diagram you posted. Part # 3 may or may not be needed. Most Rangers already have the black piece there, but I'm not sure if it differs between trucks with and without the spare tire lock.
