Rangers were all Hydraulically operated. If you're is an automatic, then you're going to need to change the pedal setup in it first. Sounds like you haven't done much homework on the swap here.

Hydraulic will be a whole lot easier. You won't have to fabricate a cable pivot point. Or connect the cable to the pedal.
