Default Replacing Dome Light

My dome lights were missing when i got my truck. No bulbs, no clear cover. All that's there is four metal or coper flat strips where they should be, im guessing. I already purchased two 12 volt dome light bulbs, i just have no idea as to where to start. Any help will be greatly appreciated. If someone would like, i can easily take a pic of it.


Thanks!!!!!

Default Re: Replacing Dome Light

I was in the same situation when I got my truck, I had to take the bulb out to turn it off, plus the cover was taped up. I went to the salvage yard and grabbed a couple dome lights out some Taurus there were two styles. The DLs in the Taurus have a 3 wire harness, but also have that L pattern that the rangers have, I terminated the wires coming out of the harness and screwed them through the plate into there respective slots on the roof as shown in the picture.

It was a perfect fit.. plus the lights were free with my new dash cluster.
