fog lights for a 2007

I have a 2007 ranger with a bumper that has no fog lights. I would like to put on some stock square lights in, is this possible and if so how hard is it.

Does anyone know how to disable the seatbelt warning.

if you want the real thing, ford will install the factory ones for you. might be pricey, but, it will look "factory"

It is in the owners manual. Look in the index under "Beltminder".

My parts guide says dealer install kit unavailable. you would have to buy it in individual pieces.

my truck didnt come with fog lights. i put them in myself. it wasnt hard at all. the hardest part was running the extension cord into the cab. use 3 wire 14awg extension cord, its alot easier to work with that 3 seperate 'loose' wires. and its cheap enuff, 25ft should be more than enuff, just cut the ends off it.


I havent rellay looked at the mounting pts on the new rangers, but on mine, and 05's the fogs are held on with these 'half nuts' its a joke really. i found removing the valance part where it curves around the side to be the easiest way to install then, cause u have a lil plastic box type thing on the inside of the curve,m and its a royal btch to get to, its MUCH MUCH easier to bend the valance kinda straight so u can get ur lil paw in there to hole the nut while u tightne the bolt.

i used 3 stainless steel bolts, washers, lock washers, and lock nuts to hold my fogs on, and it works extremely well, all i did was paint the heads of the bolts that you can see black to they blend in more. I bought the lights off a kid on here, but their on ebay, and i THINK the 04 fogs will work, but your hafta check how their mounted on other trucks.

i had everything to do it, so it didnt cost me anything other than the lights, but even so, the dealer wanted some outrageous amount of money to do a half assed mickey mouse installation. total time cause im a slow mover was about 3hours.

heres a before and after.

before: I was told some of the turcks came prewired. and while this statement turned out to be half true, i still used my own harness sinces it a zillion times better than fords mickey mouse harnesses. I found out the fogs are prewqired behind the dash, but noy in front. I was looking thats why my headlights were missing.



After



oh, i wrote a crappy tutorial too, i know 1/2 the pics dont work, but it gives you an idea.
