97 Ranger - Need Rear Lamp Wiring Assembly Plug

A previous owner trashed the molded plug behind the rear bumper where trailer wiring Tees in. The Tee connector looks like this:

So far every salvage yard I have tried says "no wiring parts". The local Ford dealer wants $550 for a part they call the Rear Lamp Wiring Assembly. Specifically I need Supercab with rear wheel ABS.

Can anyone help me locate this part used? I would settle for the driver side plug with a couple feet of wire bundle so I can splice it in. The longer the wire bundle with the plug the better.

In case I have more trouble locating this part does anyone have information about other models using the same part. I'm guessing maybe Explorer or even F150?

thanks
Mark

Thanks Kevin,

Is your job at a Ford supplier?

For now here is a decent picture of the Tee connector. This picture exactly matches the actual connector I have. Since this connector Tees in between the plug it has one of each half. There are six pins.

This weekend I will take some pics of the plug on the truck and determine which half is damaged. I know its the driver side but can't remember right now if it is the pin side or the socket side.

Another thought I have for this weekend is to cut apart my extra Tee connector and see if I can use it to make up a replacement for the broken half of the plug.

Best regards,
Mark
