Here ya go buddy. Im doing the same thing.


I have a 1998 Ranger XL and it does not have cruise, I love cruise control and i missed it ever since i bought this truck. I talked to Bob about adding it and it can be done.

Here are the parts you will need, this applies to 98-03 Rangers according to the parts guy at the Ford dealership I work at

Steering wheel buttons: F87A-9D809-BA
Cruise control servo: XL2F-9C734-AA
Clockspring: F87Z-14A664-CC
3.0 servo cable (engine specific):
steering wheel trim panel with cutouts for cruise buttons


How To: 99-03 Cruise Control

1. Disconnect both battery terminals
2. Make sure the steering wheel is straight
3. Remove air bag round trim covers on the sides of the steering wheel with a pocket screw driver
4. Remove two 8mm bolts that hold the air bag on place and unplug the wires from it
5. Set the air bag with the horn pad facing up
6. Unplug the horn wiring on the clockspring
7. Remove the torx bolt in the center of the steering wheel and re thread it in about 2 turns
8. Wiggle the steering wheel up and down, back and forth til it comes loose
9. Remove the bolt and remove the wheel
10. Remove the 7mm bolts holding the trim panel on under the dash
11. Remove the 8mm bolts holding the metal panel on under the rim panel
12. Unplug the two connectors to the clockspring about halfway down the column and the ground screw
13. Remove the wires out of the clip they are in
14. Unsnap the clockspring from the column with a pocket screwdriver
15. Remove ignition lock cylinder and remove key chime wire from it
16. Pull the wires through
17. Snap clockspring back on the column and run all the wires
18. Reinstall lock cylinder
19. Remove the horn wiring and trim panel from the steering wheel with a philllips screwdriver
20. Install cruise pods and the wiring between them, you will see on the wheel where the wire is run
21. Install new trim panel on the rear of the steeringwheel
22. Install steering wheel in the straight position and tighten torx bolt
23. Plug horn wires and cruise wires into the clockspring
24. Install airbag and tighten two 8mm bolts
25. Install airbag trim covers
26. Install metal panel and trim panel under dash
27. Under hood, remove plastic cover over the throttle cable
28. Install cruise servo on passenger inner fender using a fender bolt
29. Install servo cable on servo, turn turn to lock in place
30. Run cable to throttle body and install screw that holds cable conduit
31. Install cable end on throttle body
32. Reinstall cover on throttle body
33. Plug in 10 pin connector in servo
34. Make sure you have fuses 7,10,13
35. Install master cylinder with brake pedal pressure switch and connect wiring OR jumper the two wires together with a 2 amp fuse (what I did)
36. Reconnect battery
37. Test drive over 25mph and test
