Got my new 3rd brake-light today..

This is for those who have ever wondered if an F250/F350 3rd brake light would work on a Ranger. Well it does, and looks MUCH better than the Ranger light (IMO). So if you just want something without that 'yellow haze', but not expensive like those LED lamps, try gettin one of these.. I scored a brand new one off of ebay for $35.

This is a comparison of mine vs. the new one:

Guess I didn't realize they looked that much different. If I didnt have a cap/topper I would probably trade with my dad. Looks good.

you really have a quite condescending manner when you argue, or rather, correct people.
