It's mainly for looks now.. Just bent a L Bracket and screwed it into the license plate mount then added the c hook... Waiting until spring to add ones that can actually be used

That sounds like a bigger problem than cardboard can repair. It was 11-15 all these last 2 weeks here and my baby is warm in no more than 10 minutes

Whoa, is that a mod? I thought mine were just blown on my 99 Ranger, and then i got a new brake/cargo light assembly from pullapart and only the brake lights work again, tried new bulbs too...I always thought the cargo lights were supposed to turn on when the door opened? Cause there is no switch or anything...

Well today I got really frustrated with my Ranger. LOL I changed the plugs, wires, cap, rotor, fuel filter and both Heated O2 Sensors and I still have a rough running condition at idle. Yesterday I cleaned the IAC and MAF.

Don't you have a dimmer switch for your interior/dash lights?


If so, turn it all the way up to when it clicks and you should see the cargo come on (if you have bulbs/wiring for the cargo in your 3BL.)
