Yes, it sucks. Even without that problem, the morons still broke my lock.

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.

Yup unfortunately they are pretty easy to break into. A benefit if you lock yourself out since you can use your antenna lol.

Hell ya! My paint's almost getting beaten up badly enough that I'm considering doing that mod on mine. LR

The Ranger isn't listed at the JJ site.

Maybe we should put our heads together and design some sort of easy to install barrier that prevents this problem? Like a backing-plate of some sort? I'm guessing there might be a pretty good demand for such an invention. How many Rangers are on the road out there?
