Icon5 Do Rangers have an electronic throttle?

It doesn't take much to know I'm not a mechanic, does it?

Anyway, I'm still on this kick about adding cruise control to 06-09 4 banger XL Rangers and I was just wondering if they have an electronic throttle? I'm asking because I found a web site that sells complete cruise control kits for all Ranger engine types (2.3, 3.0, 4.0), but they were listed as only being for the 1996-2005 model years.

I then sent the site an email asking if the kit would work on 2006-2009 Rangers as well and the e-mail noted "Yes as long as they don't have an electronic throttle, they should be exactly the same". Any advice on the subject?

as Trent said they are a cable setup... the cruise module pulls the cable to keep the speed requested.

see the cable going over to the far left, that goes into a box, thats the cruise control...

Thanks for the quick and kind responses guys. I really appreciate the engine pic too GrafixGuy. Sometimes people don't like to take the time to help a noob like myself.

So basically the cruise kit should work on 06 and newer Rangers then since they still use a cable setup? I really appreciate this guys.

It wont work unless you have the connector behind the windshield washer/coolant overflow bottle. I doubt the XL will have it but check anyway.

What the hell? I keep getting five different answers about this subject everywhere I ask. I just want to know if it's possible to install cruise control kits like the one linked to below on base model 2006-2009 4-banger Rangers. That's it, really.

Maybe I should just settle for a 4 cyl Escape with CC and all power options then.

That is a universal kit so it should work. Well at least it looks like a universal kit.

He needs to have the connector under the hood to add stock cruise parts. That is what Bob told me.
