Default Help with new rear lights

I just ordered these and received them

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/98-01...item35b2474c04

They look great and fit in and all but one problem, there are three bulb input slots instead of two.. on the stock ranger lights I have, there are two sockets . I have a 2001 edge stepside. So now I have no directionals.. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do? Is there a way I could add in a third bulb, like wire it into the harness or something? I am not that good at all with eletrical.

I have those and just taped off the top spot. Someone else might have another suggestion though.

Yea, just tape them, easiest and cheapest, (really that listing is wrong, in 2001 they went to a 2 bulb set up from the 3 bulb)
(I would stobes in them, but you probably have no use for them unlike me)

but you could also go to a junkyard and get another tailight wiring harness off an older ranger with 3 bulbs, and just wire it up so that they both do the same thing

I went from a two bulb to a three bulb. But my taillights came with another bulb to wire into the other brake light bulb.
