What year fog light assembly do I need to order??? HELP!!!!

Not sure what fog light assemblies I need to buy. I'm thinking 99-2000 but not sure. They're not round or square, I'm guessing tear drop? All help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Ric

I have a pic of the front end in my gallery and don't believe they're round or the square ones. Of course I'd have to have an odd balled valance. I looked at some 99-00 and they look like they'll fit but still not sure either. Nothing can be simple with me.

you need a new valence. thats an XL valence that wasn't meant to have fog lights. if your bumper doesn't have the holes on the upper most sides of the bumper then you'll need a bumper as well.

Looks like it could have fog lights but you may be right. They'd have to be small ones. Guess I need to check with the dealer and maybe junk yard. Thanks for all the help.

All we have to work with is what you've got on the right side of your post. It looks like you've got a 2003 2wd. So, does your bumper look like this?



If so, no stock fog light will work. If you want to run stock fog lights, you will need to get a new valence (the plastic below the steel bumper). They came on 01-03 XLT 4x4's and EDGE trucks if you want round lights. Or get a 04-05 valence if you want square fogs. For a no modification fit, you will also need a new steel bumper for the same trucks I just noted. There's chrome and there's paintable.



Or if you're not wanting to buy extra parts, find some small off road lights and mount them to your existing bumper/valence combo where the stock fogs would be if you had the right valence. Many have done it and the results aren't that bad looking. Here's another idea along the same lines....

If that's your ranger with the NY tag I like the way the fogs look. Not sure how you mounted them but if you can steer me in the right direction to buy some just like that and if they come with the right hardware I'd appreciate it. Sucks that the valance wasn't made for fogs.

It's not my truck, just an image sourced off Google.

They appear to just be mounted via a hole drilled in the plastic valence.

As for locating something that will work, that's up to you. Wal Mart and auto parts stores tend to have a decent selection of very affordable smaller 55w auxiliary lights to choose from. Your wanted mounting location dictates size too. You've just gotta get out and look at whats available.
