Hey everyone I have the 06+ or latest style tail lights on my 2000 ranger with LEDs in them(L1224R's + V-leds backup bulbs). Anyways I was thinking about adding another set of LEDs into the lowest holes on the tail lamps were the reflector area is wiring them up to come on with just the break lights/turn signals. I don't care about running lights.
So after some research I bought some some 921(906) bulbs from v-leds and sockets for them at auto illumination which are supposed to fit in the tail light housing. However after i went to install them i came across a problem. It seems that my tails don't have the sockets holes on the bottom. Instead they just have small pilot holes with a sticker over them. I'm guessing its because they aren't ford OEM but yet aftermarket that look the same.
I was wondering if anyone here had any pointers on how to drill it out to fit the 921(906) socket pigtails in?
I am pretty sure that no 06 tails came with bulb holes down there. You are going to have to find a that takes 906 bulbs and cut the hole off and epoxy it to the tail light like you do for L1224R's or take a dremel or something and cut the shape out to get it to accept the socket.
The only thing I'm worried about is getting my L1224R's and v-leds to flash synchronized at the same time when applying the turn signals. My plan was to splice the new 906 leds into the brake/turn signal wire in the harness behind the tail light that leads to the L1224Rs.
From that video it looks like yours flash slightly different or was that done on purpose?
