Icon8 HELP!!! Locked keys in ranger!

I have an 01 xlt supercab and unfortunately I have locked the keys in it. I was just wondering if anyone has ever had to Jimmy their door open cause I really don't want to pay a blacksmith to unlock it. Any help is appreciated!

I dont think anyone here will tell you how to break into your truck.

But Google/youtube tells how to do anything

=============================
Write down the last 8 digits of the VIN#, take it with proof of ownership (Insurance card, registration) and your drivers license, they can cut you a H75 key off the vin, but it will ONLY OPEN the doors, do not stick it in the ignition or you could kickoff your PATS system & then your dead in the water till you take it to the dealership to be reprogrammed.

I'll post it brah. Get along rod about the same width as your antenna. Use your antenna if you want. Play with it in those little holes under the door and you'll notice it slowly pushes the lock up. Screw around until you figure it out.


OMG I SHARED THE SECRET GUISE NOW ALL THE CRIMINALS WHO HAVE 56K INTERNETS AND CANNOT ACCESS YOUTUBE KNOW HOW TO DO IT.

haha thanks for all the input guys. I figured some people wouldnt be cool with telling me how to break into a ranger on here but I was hoping they would realize I wasnt a carjacker. ANYWAYS I got into it through the back window, it was too easy really. But anyways, thanks to those of you who actually gave me advice.

My spare is kept in my wallet. I have locked the keys in it at the gas station across the street from work before and my boss had to come over and slim jim it. Thats when I started keeping the key in my wallet.
