sounds like the same mounting method that the 98-00's have as well- which are a PITA to get aligned.. ugh. But I think those would look awesome on your truck!

they will bolt right in......Rangers have had the same bedsides since '93....the only mod you will have to do is to follow my write up on changing to a 2 bulb setup...

yup red for brake, orange for turn signal. ALL bulbs are chrome, so you wont know what color they are till they light up!

yea that is the projector light........it has a wiring harness and a switch with it....i tapped into the parking light wire when i installed mine so they would come on with the parking lights.....i didnt install the switch.......it comes with a wiring harness, a switch, and a relay for the lights to run off of......you have to wire a wire to a constant hot, and then the swithc power goes to the parking light, and there is a switch ground you have to ground also...

Yeah, I think i'll just throw the switch out. Probly be less head ache that way any way. What kind of bulbs are they do ya know? And also i guess when the turn signal is on, the light will blink also.

yea it isn't no problem to wire up......mine didn't come with instructions and i had them installed in less than 30 minutes....that is including installing all 4 lights and wiring up the projector light....

that projector light is nice because it shines low and wide......

you might also want to consider doing the fog light mod for our truck....... https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ad.php?t=33969 ......if you read on down a bit to the 6th post, i explain the SMALL difference on our trucks......you have to go direct to the BROWN wire on the parking light instead of doing it at the fuse box.....i love that mod....it is nice...

looks like you will have to look at it at home.......it is real easy....if you can read, you really dont need pictures....all you need to know is the wire color and which end to connect to the parking light...

yup....you can run them with the parking lights on, and the high beam lights on.......it i will still allow you to turn them off at the factory switch by your radio.....with the high beams on, it gives you extra low light to see directly infront of you.....kinda like running your high and low beams at one time.....

i like it alot because at night when i am responding to a fire, i just turn on my parking lights and i have my fog lights, and the projector lights on.....that way my wig-wags show up....

OOOOOOO Ok. My fogs now have been disconected from the factory spot and I ran my own relay and fuse, 10 guage wire, etc. So I can run with my fogs on with high beams on now as it is........
