This is all you need to know, pages 3 and 4.

Many people have done it, its easy as long as you follow Griggs guide. I'm actually going to be doing mine this weekend. The only biggie is that you have to cut your headliner.

Its really not that hard. Just prep for the job and read the instructions over and over and over. Its totally worth it.

If you have any questions just ask. Welcome to the site brother.

2004+ owners:

Be sure to check the addendum at the end of John's How-to (page 4). The procedure remains basically the same but there have been changes to some of the 2004+ Ranger color codes and wire locations.

glad to hear you got it all figured out...after 5 years I finally got around to it and put one in my truck last weekend. Easier than I thought it would be eventhough i had some wiring discrepancies. I just wish i had done this mod sooner.
