Smile Drug runner? My new/used Taco

My 2000 Ranger xlt 4 dr 4WD was totaled a few weeks ago. I bought it new and it was a creampuff, looked like the day I rolled it off the lot with only 74K on it. Dang insurance didn't give me jack for it .

I decided to get a PreRunner extended cab 2 wd for a little better mileage. Around here the Stealers are asking 1000 - 3000 over Kelly Blue Book - bastids so I've kept my nose on craigs list and auto trader.

I found a 2002 and picked it up yesterday. The only thing it didn't have
was the cruise control (dang it - the add said it did) , but decided to just get it over with. The back interior is scratched up a
bit maybe from their dog and there are a few dings but overall it ran
well and was smooth on the freeway. Has new tires (nubbies are there)
I'm sure the stealer put them on and are not "the best" but will do
for now. I figure it's not gonna be a garage queen and to expect that
for it's age it will have a few wear n tear marks.

I ran a blue book on it before I left and it showed it was worth 9300 and they ran the same one and it came up with 12,995 WTH??? I studied the printout quite thoroughly and it all looked legit. Overall I think I got a decent deal and that's really all that matters.

Now for the real killer. We open up the cab and I look over to the
glove box area and notice something hanging down. I said to the sales guy - "HEY! What's the deal with the bag of weed in here?" We laughed
and I said "under the dash", he looks and pulls out this bag and it was
some of the illegal stuff. He took it in to the supervisor on staff
(or so he said) LOL. Kinda funny, makes me wonder if the truck was a
drug seizure or summat???

Anyone know if you can yank a cruise control off a junkyard unit and have it just plug n play?

That's all for now.

I asked the same about the cruise....recently I located one on eBay and posted up a link about it with the eBay item listed....so far no one has gotten back about it.

While checking on eBay I also found another place which had the computer box as well as several other cruise control parts which were not part of the item I had been looking at so I think there may be a bit more involved than just plug-n-play.
