Default Ever had to slim jim a Ranger?

So I locked my keys in the truck and guess what I was doing yesterday? Going to Baxters auto parts to buy a slim jim.

Now I have a spare key, I normaly always do but its a new truck and I hadn't got around to it yet.

ive locked mine out once or twice, i keep a piece of thick ground wire in the bed and just go through my sliding glass window and either fish the keys out or once i was actually able to open the door handle with the wire its more fun than crawling under my truck to get my spare haha

rangers are stupid easy to pop. Coat hanger bent like a J does it. Slide in with hook part to the hood. Drop about 7" turn the hook to you, pull up. I have locked my keys in before. Usually first thing I do is lock the door upon opening, well, forgot to get the keys

You need a keybox, they're nice even though I've never been locked out.

I have a hidden keybox now. But I've had to pop my lock with my radio antenna before.

I have a spare set at my house..but I really need to get just a flat key cut to keep somewhere either outside my truck, or in my wallet. Never heard of a key box, everyone I know usually zip ties it under their vehicle somewhere :P
