are you talking about your car domain link? I didn't see glove box anywhere. By the way I was looking at your Ranger, you've put alot of work into that thing and it looks great. I just picked up a 2003 supercab xlt yesterday. Candy apple red. Do you know anything about installing cruise control on it, is it difficult?

Look in my signature where it says 'Ford Owners' Manuals Online'. Click 'Online' to get to the Ford site, then click 'Glovebox' in the menu bar, then follow the instructions to get your O/M in .pdf format.

There were genuine Ford dealer installed speed control kits but they are engine specific and year specific. Original price was $300 but they sometimes show up on eBay for around $100. Probably getting harder to find these days for a 7-year old truck.. The factory kit requires removing the steering wheel to swap in the special speed control clockspring, so that makes it moderately difficult.

The other option is an aftermarket speed control but I haven't installed one of those.

Yes, I did one on a 2000 but its basically the same procedure. No drilling was involved with mine. Everything simply plugged into the factory wiring.
