I looked again.  My #19 fuse is 25 amp and it controls PCM power diode, Ignition, PATS.  I guess that's because my truck is a 2003 as opposed to your 2004.  Ford changed a LOT of electrical stuff in 2004.  Still, good stuff to know!

I unbolted the bed and pulled it back enough to get to the fuel pump,the pump went bad on me. I also bought a bed bolt hardware kit,1 bolt broke off a year ago when I put on a new tank filler hose but I've got 2 more about ready to break so I figured I'd better change them all.I ordered the pump online but it should be here before the week's out.

I replaced my bed bolts. They were shot. I coated the new ones with anti seize.

That's what I'm going to do with mine too. The thing I don't like about the new ones are they're allen head instead of torx like the old ones were.

Nothing happening with the Ranger this week except for buying sandpaper and a better air filter. I put in 50 hours on my 35 hour a week max job.  I am tired.

I do have an appointment to see a 1999 Mercury Mountaineer that has 125k miles, V8, AWD, and every other option available for that year model tomorrow morning.  If this works out the 04 2wd Ranger will be on the market and I will be looking for an extended cab 4x4 preferably with 4:10 LS gears that is about 20 years old.

For the last couple of days I have had a squeak  under or behind the cab and a slapping sound like a zip tie was tied to the drive-shaft along with a vibration at low speed.  I had to do a 50 yard strait line back-up  today and I pushed it a bit I heard what sounded like metal snapping. Nothing fell out and everything looks good on the bottom side. Universals are good and I have no fluid leeks anywhere on the transmission and rear axle. The vibration is now gone but the squeaking is worse upon acceleration and more pronounced accelerating in a curve.  
I am at a loss on where to look next. I am waiting for something to fail at this point to see what it is.

Are you sure the U-joints are good?  Based on your description, the almost exactly matches what mine sounded like when my U-joints were failing.  Specially accelerating on a curve or around a corner.

That was my thoughts also but they are tight in their cradles. The vibration is back when applying power and it fades above 40 and is gone by 55. With just under 140k on the original universals it would be a good idea to replace them.

I guess it is time for a RockAuto order.  I also have some parts I need to order for the Stingray.

Edit: Parts ordered w/ 5% discount code. I got the Ranger universals and hardware kits. For the Stingray a master cylinder rebuild kit, and 4 caliper rebuild kits. I decided over Christmas it was time to finish the restoration of the Stingray and get the old girl back on the road.  Brakes first and then to go through the fuel system and then to finish the engine upgrade. The Stingray has been in storage twice for just over a total of 40 years. It is a 74 convertible with just over 47K miles.

Vibration is worse. Truck is parked. I am on the motorcycle now. It is freaking cold out there. Parts will be in  Saturday or Tuesday.
