Is this the right one ? looks to match it. I dont have a tilt steering wheel so maybe ill luck out with ahveing to cut much ehre and there, any suggestion for what other gauge I should get. My crrest cluster, the stock one dosnt have a tach, maybe i should pick up one of the mini tach's ? trans/oil on there way with a dual a pillar.



Edit* nevermind as I look none of those tach's will fit, I may stick to my original plan of just finding a new instrument cluster, one with a tach and fuel light and all the little things I dont have.

get a water temp gauge or a oil pressure gauge......you can get a cluster with a tach in it and it will bolt right into your truck with no problems....and work...

Bill R. (04lvl2) installed one from a Mustang (i believe) in his manual Ranger.....fit just as nice as the F-150 fits......

you might also be able to find them for a manual F-150....

the 2000 pillar pods should work on your 05, they havn't changed the ranger since 1993
