What other kind of connector goes in fog light holes

What kind of set up goes in the fog light holes? I have the fog light housing but no wires or the little thing that twists in and holds the bulb. What else can I get those from if I can not find a Ranger at the junkyard? Will an explorer fog light holder twist in thing work on the Ranger housing?

Just go to a auto parts store and ask for a connector for a 9145 bulb. The bulb twist in to the housing the the pigtail plugs into it.

Ya, explorers should be the same, I believe almost all fords in that year range used 9145 bulbs in fogs. Don't touch the glass bulb though, there halogens.

Ok, cool. Then when I go I will just grab as many as I can to make sure I get a good one. Will the bulbs be ok in my pocket?

I'd brab a plastic bag, the bulbs are real heat sensitive, just like headlight bulbs. You get some type of oil on the bulb and the oil acts like an insulator and the bulb can burst while on, in a few minutes after using.

It was a joke, hence the lol at the end. If it fits in your pocket its free is what a lot of the JYs have told me.

I know dude. I wasn't saying that in a serious tense. I'm just saying that bulbs are nothing. I have taken probably around 100 fuses, hubcap, instument cluster inside parts, gas caps, *****, switches, horn pumps, stuff like that. Next will be the radio bezel in the back of my shirt under my coat.

The Jy I go to Everything is on computer and cleaned, it looks like a huge Walmart full of car parts. In the back there are a couple lifts to either take the new cars apart or put the part on for you. Its sick but cant steal anything there

I do pay for the big stuff. Recently, whole instrument cluster, power door motor and rail(forgot I took the switch), class III hitch for a project of mine, hopefully soon a rear end.

Ok, went to the junkyard today. I got to bulbs, some wiring, and a right housing. I actually bought the housing, it was $10. Some how the wiring and bulbs fell into my pocket?

Here is my old right housing. No black twist thing and two of the ears were broken off for the screw.
