Third Brake Light/Cargo Light

Just bought an 06' Ranger XLT. Love the truck, however, would really like a cargo light. I noticed the 150, 250, and Sperduty lights look like they are the same size as the Rangers, and they have the cargo lamps. Question is can I get this light for the Ranger, if not does anyone know if the F series third brake lights are in fact the same size.

First off welcome. The 02 and older Rangers had the cargo lamps as an option. Got to a dealership and buy the lamp itself, it should be about 15 bucks. Then get the pigtails for the cargo light bulbs. The dealer ship will have these or go toa junkyard. Then wire the bulbs up to you dome lights. it will then work like an F150 cargo lamp. I did this on my 04 and it works great. I also did this with my Topper dome light.


Good luck!

some people on here want the all red tail light, or you can also check at www.rangerpowersports.com to see if someone will trade you. I traded with someone my edge all red light for the xlt cargo light

I have the cargo lamp so I can just cut the wires for the clear bulbs and just wire that to the dome light? I do like when the doors are open on the F150 and the cargo light comes on, unlike mine.

You can just cut the one wire going to the cargo lamps and tap it into the Black/Blue wire (i think thats the right one) going to the dome light. Then the cargo lamps will come on whenver your dome light is on.

Yep and it works great. Idid it to my 04 and when those geniuses at the topper store told me that they wanted to wire the dome light in the topper up to the parking lamp, so I couldn't accisdently leave it on. I said "Wow that is the laziest way I have ever heard to do it and I made them let me wire it up to the Factory dome light. Now when I click the unlock the lights inside the truck come on as well as the topper.
