Default Gauge Cluster Question

I want to swap out my gauge cluster with a sport trac one. I see plenty of 01-03 sport trac clusters which I think will fit (03 Ranger XL here), but the ebay listing says it won't fit. I swear I've seen on here that it will, but I wanted to double check before I went for it.

This is the listing I'm looking at (though there are plenty of them...)

yes it'll fit. it's almost the most popular interior mod on '03 and older rangers. Remember, junkyards and ebay don't know these trucks like members of this community do...

I just swapped mine out with the same exact one. It will fit your truck for sure. Keep looking around too, I just found one for dcryme for 17.90. Just make sure if you have a
2wd truck get the 2wd cluster, 4wd truck get the 4wd cluster

That's about the going rate for them. One step better than the sport trac ones are the silver 03 ranger ones. have the silver one now in my 95, and had the st one before.

@STL: Thanks man, I already had that one bookmarked it should come in handy.
@Drppy....something: I checked out the silver one too, but I actually think I prefer the look of the white one. They both are pretty BA though. Too bad my little XL came with none of the cool stuff, I gotta put it all on myself.

i agree, both look nice. but after adding the silver hvac panel from the ex sport, the white gauges looked out of place.

What is the glow color of the silver ones? Is it green like the old black and white ones and the Sport Tracs?
