1996 ranger throttle cable

I'm trying to find a throttle cable for a 1996 ranger 2.3 4x2, but can't anywhere except for the dealership.

Has anyone found one anywhere else? The dealership wants $90 for one, but for that i'm almost willing to repair where the cable stop popped off and call it good enough.

Yeah, but a 10 yo throttle cable is going to be just as stretched out and ready to pop as the 10 yo one that came out of there.

What happened to yours?

My 13 year old one functions perfectly fine, isn't stretched. Idle is fully closed and WOT is perfect 90 degree open.

I've seen them on eBay. You might try local shops as well...anywhere but the dealer will have them a good bit cheaper.

RhinoScores is starting off with a positive reputation.
How can you tell if it is stretched? I have a 93 3.0 that has a cable that is very rusty.

if you get under the dashboard and look at the top of the throttle arm, where the cable goes in you can tell. You pull the pedal up away from the floor and the if the cable comes away from the pedal arm more than about 1/2" it has stretched.
