Rangers are not high on the list of stolen vehicles.
Not sure if it's true, but they say if you don't use the coded key, (at least the 2000 +)there is no way the truck will start

That's correct. Without programming a truck's computer to take the chipped key, it won't start it.... it can open the truck IF it's cut correctly, but it can't start it.
