Default Taurus Cluster

I just realized that the Taurus and Ranger both got a redesigned cluster and wheel in 2004, and they both look surprisingly similar. Wonder if anyone has and how hard it would be to put the Taurus Cluster into a Ranger. The Taurus cluster has a digital info center below the Temp and Gas gauges. Here's a pic of one: http://images.thecarconnection.com/m...00298275_m.jpg

I don't know, but hopefully someone will. All I know is that I would love to put that in my truck (if it's possible) and customize it to make it glow all blue and white

I could be on to something, huh? LOL I found a pic of a 93 Ranger with the fully digital cluster from a Gen 2 Taurus so it's probably is doable.

That's because it's stock. If I had that in my possession, it will not look like that. All custom!

The one thing I see is that Taurus gauge cluster still has idiot lights distributed between the gauges. The 04+ Ranger cluster has them all in one spot.

I used to have a '90 Cougar and it had the full digital cluster, it still wouldn't go past 85 I believe you had to create a jumper on the back of the cluster for it to display more than 85 mph.

No, she's not a "hotrod". Nor is she meant to be, nor does having a speedo that registers more than 85 MPH signify a "hotrod". After all, it is a ford ranger.
I just think that it would be a decent mod to have a 120mph speedo in a vehicle that didn't come with one.
