Why do you want a ricer mod?

I'm sure if done properly you should not have any problems. I would wire it up so you could still use the key to start it. It will void you warranty if it is proved to cause something else to malfunction.

Oh yeah. Pay the money for a good one not a $10 thing off of ebay.

yea, i'd wait till the warranty is gone before you do that. as cool as they are, i wouldn't put one in a ranger. my stepdad has a mustang and i'm considering getting him one since it suites the car better.

If you dont mind me asking, why do you want that? So you are still going to have to put the key in and then take the effort to push the button?

You should make a push button starter on the driver's seat, so when you sit on it the engine will start and when you get out it will shut off. lol.

Its not going to do much to the warranty I dont think. Is there a kit for this, or how are you planning on doing this?

Ive done all sorts of mods to my '08 and I had some warranty work done just the other day, no problems or questions asked.

If the Mod isnt the cause of the problem that needs to be fixed under warranty, you shouldnt have any problems.

I just had a question.

If you eliminate the key, and just have a button to push wouldn't it make it easier to steal?

I have never seen one used so that's why I ask

Id do it like my grandpa's prius. Id have a key fob that worked as a transmitter so when I was in the truck and pushed the button, the truck would look for the key fob and if it saw it, start the engine.

So you put the key into the ignition, possibly turn it, and push a button?? Sounds like a waste to me.... I'd wait until the warranty's up but I'm not one to talk... and isn't the warranty 3 years, not 4?
