Those smoked LED tails are rice looking. Anything with a chrome or CF backing looks rice IMO.

With the black headlight/corner lights off eBay, I've always liked these tails to match the style.



But you may also like these:




I've had these ones since 04, some niteshade would look good on them.



I'd personally stay away from the LED ones off eBay. Just get some regular style ones and do the L1224R mod to them, WAY better then the cheap LED ones.

I like those lights... How does it work exactly.. Like i know you need to have a red brake light for the tails but i dont see how that would work. Can someone explain this?

You use a red coloured bulb or LED 3157 bulb.

You can buy chrome covered incandescent bulbs that burn red, or just buy a regular red bulb. eBay's got those too.

RED


CHROME


OR THE L1224R


SEARCH on here for the details.


On your 03, you have the 2 bulb harness(stop/signal/park and reverse), so the center hole can be used as a park lamp (need to splice in a harness) or just a turn, and make the bottom one just a park/brake.



They also have these ones, but it makes no sense to have the reverse lamp in the middle with the side reflector.



But they look like ***!!

Just searched "Ford Ranger Tail Lights Black"

Roughly half way down the page....and then scattered through out the pages....LOL

ford ranger tail lights black, eBay Motors, Tail Lights. Great deals on eBay!

Here's the item link:

93 94 95 96 97-00 FORD RANGER BLACK ALTEZZA TAILLIGHTS : eBay Motors (item 390172294051 end time Mar-24-10 1733 PDT)

There are a few different prices and shipping differs too. Good luck!!

For bulbs, just search the bulb numbers them self, and then any colour.

P.S, don't punch these out....LOL

I would kind of agree, but I think altezza style lights are definitely "rice" or low-rider. There's also nothing wrong with the eBay LED lights. They are certainly just as good as the other eBay aftermarket tail lights. In my opinion, they are just as bright as the L1224R's based upon the video and pictures I've seen. Plus, they are definitely better than incandescent tail lights.

All tail lights will fit from 93-2010. They are all the same size and shape. Pre 97 I believe are a 3 bulb set up where as after that Ford went with a 2 bulb harness. No difference in fitment of use.

Paint the inside of stock tail lights black?? Never heard of that at all. A lot of people Niteshade their tails, or paint the headlights and corner lights black.

You have any pics of your tails?

It's pretty much the same thing as the headlight mod...except it takes a lot longer for the taillight to come apart. I'm planning to do it whenever I get nice enough day and time haha
