tail light idea

on the way home from school today, i was behind an 07 explorer and sitting at the red light forever i noticed the tail lights. im pretty sure they were factory tails, but does anyone know if they will fit a ranger since alot of explorer parts do? these tail lights looked dam good too.

No the explorer lights will not fit. The 06+ Ranger taillights don't look too bad if you want some stock ones.

if you have a 2 bulb system then yes. if you have a 3 bub system then some modification is needed. if my memory serves me correctly your 2000 has a 2 bulb system so your ok. check out jusnesmodified.com for the tailights.

Ok guys I searched around and could not find the pictures for them but the new '07 taillights, not the ones that rwenzing posted up top of this thread but the ones that are in either the STX or Tremor editions. They are red, white, and yellow, and at the bottom they round out. Someone knows what I am talking about, are they able to fit in earlier model Rangers because I have seen them in there but just not sure what mods may be nessacary, because those taillights are hot lookin'?

Ya I am not sure, I am almost 100% positive that the '07 STX's have them though.
2007 STX Tri-color Taillamps
Click on photo gallery, then it is the forth picture on the 1st page, see the tri-color taillamps on the black one. I just read the description and it does say that it comes with tri-color taillamps. I am glad I finally found a picture. That is a wicked looking truck though for little guys, hmmmm?
