i think it is 99-2001 explorers
2000-2002 sport tracs?

other then that just look at them on ebay. if they looks like yours but are white then they will work.

if you want, or just swap the readout and speedo from the old one to the new one.

requires removal of speedo needle tho, then you have to make sure you get it back on correctly

for the fuel inertia switch...when it gets tripped...

and the swap is terribly easy...all i did was buy the cluster, remove the gauge faces (plastic backing and all) and swap them into my housing while still using all the electronics from my cluster assembly...

Yeah, the swap is seemless unless you wanna do anything special. I also have an 00 ranger and got the sport trac guages from a 2003. I ended up putting my original odometer because the one I gt was at like 30K miles and my truck had 140K miles and was takin way to lon to roll those numbers. You can get fancy though and put in different color LEDs instead of the stock green, but requires a bit more work and patience.

I put either a 2001 or 2002 (don't remember which) cluster in mine, and all the lights were correct. I know some people have mentioned the theft light didn't work with some swaps either.

Mine worked perfectly. It came out of an Explorer Sport. Plugged it in and that was it.

Sorry for bringing up a somewhat old thread but in order to get the stock one out do you just unscrew those torx bolts holding it in around the cluster?

And then for the explorer sport one I'd be putting in, I can use the stock wiring of my ranger correct?

This is what I'm looking at, everything seem okay?

Yea. You should be able to unplugg the old cluster and plugg the new one in. I put a sport cluster in my 98 XL without tach and it works fine. It was just plug and play.
