98-00 B-Series to 98-00 Ranger Headlights

I am changing the front end of my 98 Mazda to a 98 Ranger. I have changed out the header panel (PITA) and headlights no problem. The corners are another story. The Mazda only had 1 bulb for the corners and the Ranger has 3. I know I need to go get the plastic bulb holders but i was wondering how to wire them in. Do all three of those bulbs get wired up to the blinker wire? What is the operation of the three bulbs (1 upper side, and 2 lower)?

Thanks,

Marc

the light next to the headlight i believe is just a runner light, the strip below the two is the actual blinker, so you just need that piece to tie into the single that came with your truck.

So, my one light harness probably has all the wires I need to split so that the upper corner is a parking light and the lower two are the blinker. I just need to pull out the trusty multimeter and find out which is which.

there is a mod, I cant remember what site it on. Where you can make the upper bulb a turn signal too. It would alternate with the bottom two when the lights were off, and would stay on when the lights were on. let me see if I cant find it.
