Off Road light Options

What are the options for mounting Off road lights on a 2003 Ford Ranger? Post Pictures as well if you have them?

I have 2 6" Off road Lights to mount and will soon convert them to H3 HID

Also what the easiest way to wire them to a switch in the cab? the lights didnt come with all the hardware for the switch and fuse and such.

No it will not. Find one for a F-250/F-350 of the same year as your truck......THAT will work, as the Ranger and 250 and 350 share the same 3rd brake light.

4 55w harbor freight lights, bright as hell!
Got'em on sale for 7.99 each, they're reg 9.99, hell of a steal. Only down side is where the wire goes into the light the bushing broke on 2 lights, little silicon fixes that.
