3rd Break Light/Cargo Light

Does anyone know where I could get a 3rd break light that also has the clear cargo lights on it to. Would I need to run wires to get the cargo lights to work. I have found some but they are LED and I personally dont like the look of LEDs.

I agree. I don't like the LED either. I like OEM. Anyway I have seen them on ebay and if you have a junkyard nearby you could check that out. I also want to do this in the near future. Check ebay under F150 third brake light.

ebay or junkyards, here, etc....No you don't need to run extra wires. All you'll need is to make sure it comes with the extra harness(has 3 bulbs in stead of 1). Unsnap your single bulb harness, snap in the 3 bulb harness, bam your done. Your wires are already there, so no need to route anyt new ones.

2004+ Rangers do not have the wiring in place to add cargo lights on a plug and play basis. You can go a couple of ways to get them working.

One way is to run wiring to a dash switch. Then choose or add a fused power source that allows them to be active with the key on or all the time (your preference).

Another way is to tap and extend the dome light wire (BK/LB) above the headliner to power the cargos (BK/PK). Certain years and models of Ford pickups have been wired this way from the factory. Obviously, the cargos would come on every time you open a door or move the dimmer wheel to the 'always on' position.

You missed out. I made a junkyard run last week for another member on here for the cargo/brake light and I picked up 2 and I sold 1 on E-bay. Just ended the other day. The yard had tons of these lights.

Rangers have had the same mounting pattern for many years. I'd also look at 80/90's F-series.
