Take the volrage regulator out of the alternator and run the engine at 6k rpms. This will temporarily increase the light output.

Or put an LED bulb in it for a more long term solution.

The Ranger interior light is plenty bright.....do you need extra lighting because you have cataracts or some degree of bad night vision?
Go to an auto parts store and see if they have a brighter bulb.

I have an 11 Sport, I had the stock dome light and the light output wasn't the greatest. I went ahead and installed the mustang/f-series dome light and put led bulbs in it, made a huge difference. you would probably be fine with the stock dome and just find some bright led bulbs off of ebay or amazon.

Put and LED bulb in it, just look for one with LEDs located on the sides that will be facing the lens. I picked one up at either MalWart or AutoZone for my 2004. I think it was a Phillips, but don't remember the number. It's a horrid bluish-white color, but it sure lights up the interior

I guess I am lucky to have 20/10 vision and excellent night vision at 64 years old.

Simple LED upgrade is the simplest solution for proving more interior light at night.

However, swapping to a map dome light can yield more usable light. I'm pretty fond of 98-03 "bubble" dome lights.

Below is a how-to on adding the mustang dome light to a 04+...same stuff applies to my preferred "bubble" dome light. The aiming of the map lights are more OnPoint than the Mustang or Explorer dome.

2004 and up Ranger to Mustang Dome Light Mod
