Re: Jack assembly for 07 Ranger

You noticed the years that eBay posted that fit your truck, so if you have a junk yard close which I didn't, then that is your best option. I have a 2004 so I can't confirm parts.

Re: Starter spins but not engageing flywheel,No Start?

I already bought a crank sensor,thought I would try it and I have read,if I read it right inertia switches once they fail it should be replaced as the problem re-occurs. Thanks for your help!
