I dunno about your lights, but my stock housing wouldn't be worth the trouble!
2001+ have amber parking lights in them.
They look pretty good with painted black background.

I would just buy quality aftermarket light housings that are already black

Yeah I hear ya. My 98 has amber parking lights too actually. I'm just curious if its a do able mod for my year and if its even worth it. I was hoping I could until I get the chance to buy aftermarket lights.

if you were to paint any stock ford ranger headlight 2000 and older, you would have nothing but a completely black reflector. which would make seeing the road at night impossible.

Until you buy aftermarket housings unfortunately our year of rangers you can't do this mod on. Which really sucks cuz I would like to do this mod aswell.
