Question which wiring harness for 1998?

Getting ready to install a radio in my 1998 Ranger. There are several types of wiring harnesses out there "For" Rangers. I suspect that all Rangers of a certain year take the same one, but which one is it?
Factory tape deck coming out.
Please describe which one actually fits this model.

Your truck is at the year when they changed the harnesses, so if it is the newer style that it should be (1 plug) then its Metra # 70-1771 or Scoshe # FD16B. Hope this helps you out man.

Thank goodness I found it at my local Advance-Auto parts store for ten bucks. It was a single plug with about 14 pins. Kind of a square shape. The difference is the type of stereo system each truck has. Some with a premium sound system have an extra plug or different configuration. Best thing to do is pop it out and take a look. Too hard to guess at it.
