2000 Ford Ranger

My son has a 2000 Ford Ranger 4x4. His vehicle dis not come from the
factory with tilt or cruise. I don't know why in this day and age they
would even produce a vehicle without theres options...but anyway..

He would like to add both tilt & cruise. If I am able to find a
steering column (at a salvage yard) that has tilt and cruise, do you
suppose I can simply swap them out? I know that I will have my work
cut out for me...but did the factory leave a pig tail or connector
under the dash for aftermarket upgrade?

His truck is in storage for a few more weeks until he comes home
from Iraq. I have not looked under the dash for connectors as of yet.
Just asking for advice and trying to steer clear of the dealer
pricing.

I appreciate your comments.

Kyle

So that "Interstate" and Ricart can advertise: "New Ford Rangers! Low
as..."

The tilt change will probably be fairly easy.. minding the safety issues
with airbags and all. And airbag is more important than tilt.
May require a PCM (computer) swap
You need to buy the full shop manual. Check ebay

Thank your son for his service to our country!
