Dealer called me back yesterday and said they were able to make a key for the lock cylinder, but couldn’t get it to work in the ignition cylinder. He could sell me a new ignition cylinder, but wasn’t sure how to get the old one out so good luck.

Thanks for the help, Dave.....

Well i can say its not to difficult to get the cylinder out i recomend these. Then you just clean the rest out with a hammer and screwdriver.

Whatever your more comfortable with, i once called for the same thing and locksmiths around here wanted 300-400$ to do it hence why i learned to do it. Your prices could be better

tempted to say if the dealer will give you the key they cut for it, I’d take a crack at seeing what I could do with it, but I have no idea where you’re at, lol

I got a set of keys they cut that work in the door locks, but looks like you are at about the exact opposite side of the state though. lol

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

If only there was some way to have a disinterested 3rd party transport objects long distances for us, maybe for a small fee.

Just send him the keys and the steering column…

:LOL:

Here's my thing... Why was this console never put in the ranger anyway? The middle space was literally useless. The tiny seat could only hold a child that wouldn't be legal to sit there anyway?

I hated the 60/40 bech in my old rangers. That was a big plus when I switched to the sport trac. Really liked the open idea. I removed that silly bag that came down there and found a cooler that fit right in there at Wally world. Was awesome and would have held a lot of chowder. Wished my 2020 had that configuration
