What kind of Ranger do you have? I mounted my switch into the aux input for the stereo and then moved that input to the glove box.

I cut a hole in the dash near the headlight switch on the left side of the steering column. I have a 98 so idk if your headlight switch is different.

Put it in the stock location on the radio bezel--or better yet, use an OE foglight switch mounted in the bezel. Junk Yard or get the Buggman Hookup.

I might be a little biased, but I think this set-up looks the best.
