Icon2 Will this dome light work for a replacement?

My two bulb dome light: see pic: is kinda flaky... it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't... I think it's just the age and the contacts are all messed up.





Went on ebay and saw this.

Problem is mine is a two bulb and this is a three bulb... Looks to be the same but would this work given the picture above?

2001 Ranger XLT.

Thanks,
-Nigel

Yes it will work. I did the same thing. I had one like that and i broke it, found a new one in the JY that had three bulbs and it fit right in.
Get the LEDS from Buggman. they turn your truck into day at night.

Thanks for the pictures. I am going to say that everything on this new one is going to be functional.

Yea I figured since it needed a dome light it would be better to get hit by a car and total the thing...lol No seriously though, I was going through an intersection and got hit.. fortunatly no one was hurt but the truck that I had for all of 3 days was totaleled :-(

The new truck I am picking up saturday should be nice though... I'm super excited to have a ranger again.
