Thanks for the response and forum police-y advice.
My truck is stock and I'll add that to my sig so people know that going in.
I did my part by posting my question in the proper section for my engine type. I didn't bother to mention what engine I had in my question because I didn't realize redundancy was a necessity.
I'll try to behave like a probie until I have the proper number of posts.

I am posting from my PHONE a lot. PHONES ARE SLOW. WHEN THE VEHICLE DESCRIPTION SHOWS UP ON EVERY POST IT MAKES IT EASIER. I DON'T HAVE TO GO THOUGH THE THREAD LOOKING FOR THE PROPER INFO...........BUT AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT BECAUSE I AM UNSUBSCRIBING FROM THIS THREAD. BEST OF LUCK

So you see you don't want to just go and buy new OX sensors. The sensors can be tested with a voltmeter though. I just tried to find a store I came across a few days ago. Couldn't find it sorry. It had sensors for about 29 bucks each. Since the OX sensor readings can be out of parameter/not in normal range by many things 3 could be fixed cheap and should be done anyway as routine maintenance. Check the air filter, buy some fuel injector cleaner (the more expensive HD ones that are meant for 5,000 mile intervals)...and the PCV valve (putting in a new one is the hardest to do of the 3, but a new one is cheap).
Rock Auto online has great prices. I prefer to buy from brick and mortar stores, but sometimes the price is just too damn good. I can understand how they keep their prices cheap, even with shipping. I had a great experience buying shocks, DPFE Sensor, ignition wires and plugs from them.

You're right he did. If you want to be ungreatful whiner, then go to some other forum. Apparently we aren't worthy of your presence here. After all, we didn't all drop what we're doing on a Saturday in the middle of the summer to answer at your beck and call to your 110% satisfaction. People like you have a very short life cycle on this form which is one of the things that makes it so great.

You probably have your answer and made your repairs by now but just for the record if anyone else needed to know where O2 sensor 1 is on a 3.0 V6 (99 Ranger). It is the bank 1 side (cylinders 1-3 side) on PASSENGER SIDE (known as right) on pipe before converter (known as upstream). There are (3) O2 sensors. I had a check engine light and rough idle. Got an Advance Auto test and codes P0133, P1131 and P0171 (all bank 1, sensor 1) came up. I cleaned the MAF sensor and changed the O2 sensor. It runs MUCH better and the check engine light has not come back on. Changing the sensor was challenging (I'm not a mechanic). There's no room for the special socket but what worked for me was several coats of PB Blaster and I cut off the wires (after disconnecting) and slid a 7/8" box wrench over the wires. Able to do it on top with some patience. Good luck!

I got the new sensor, genuine Motorcraft, and it was 7/8" by vernier caliper. (7/8" = 22.225mm... if you happen to have a 22mm lying around.) Off to the hardware for a combination (box & open end) wrench that cost me $12 or so. (Far cheaper than a mechanic, and I'll forever have a 7/8" wrench I'll probably never use again.) On a Saturday morning with a cool engine, I got under the truck with a can of 'break free' (liquid wrench if you like).

IMHO, WD 40 is Crap. It was originally developed for the military... Water Displacement 40 Days. That's what it's good for. It is neither a good penetrant nor a good lubricant. Buy a can apiece of penetrating oil and light non-detergent motor oil and you've got quality.

Anyhow, I let the penetrating oil set for a few minutes and got back under with the wrench and the new sensor. Careful with that wrench, Eugene! I got it on the old sensor so I had leverage against the exhaust. (Avoid 'pushing' a wrench... that's how you bust your knuckles). It took a little muscle, but I'm not an overly strong guy. No problem.

The new sensor came with dabs of anti-seize compound on it's threads. If yours doesn't have that, get some and use it.

Oh, the box end of the wrench wouldn't fit over the connector, so you definitely need the open end wrench. I'm sort of a tentative guy, and/or a hoarder so I hate to throw parts away (cut off the connector) until I'm certain they won't ever be needed again. Besides, you'll need it to tighten the new sensor.

One last bit that's not entirely right in my book... if I had known what I know now, I would have given it a shot with the large adjustable wrench I have. ...at your own risk!

You're eight months late seeing as I posted my question in December, but your disdain for my conduct is noted and I'm still here.

To everyone else, thanks for all the hints, tips and links.
The light went away like some sort of electrical gremlin, but I did end up replacing the O2 sensors without much trouble just to make sure I was a pass on my state inspection.
Next on my list... radiator.
