Default Does a 99 Ranger XLT have a factory Amp?

Hello ,
I just got a 99 ford ranger and I am thinking about putting a stereo that I have in my garage it it. I have an amp, speakers and a decent head unit for it. I was curious if it has a factory installed amp or if the speaker power just runs off of the deck? If it just runs of of the deck I can use the pre run speaker wires to connect mine to. If it has a factory installed amp I need to run new wires for the speakers. Also if any of you have a similar truck that you added an amp and head unit to I would love some info on amp wireing and how you did it. I checked at the local radio shop and they want almost $500.00 to install it for me.

Some trucks came with a upgrade stereo it was a option

The amp from what I under stand is on the passenger side kick panel or the back panel of the cab

Go here for installing amp

well i gotta 95 ranger xlt and i put a new sound system into it and i found out a couple things. the harness i bought for the radio was incorrect they made 2 kinds and one was for the premium sound system witch i dont have but they did have the stock sound system harness witch i bought. there was no amp in my ranger so i drilled a hole right below the line that goes out to pop the hood and then i duck sealed ot after running the wire. and i put to 10s sony explods and sony amp in with nice sony deck. really wouldnt change the factory speakers unless you go really expensive cuzz the factory one hit pretty good and bought pioneers for them and didnt really notice a difference. helpful tip speakers sixe is 6x8 for the front and back hope you guys enjoy hope this helped you guys out.

From I think 1993 to 1998 the ranger came with a premium sound system not like the Tremor package from 2001 - 2005

All the premium sound system included was a amp and four speakers. The amp wasn't even that big

Default Re: Does a 99 Ranger XLT have a factory Amp?

Hate to bring up an old thread, but...My 94 has the premium sound, and its the same factory amp as the mustangs. Like STL said, its behind the pass side kick panel, and it aint very big at all. My problem is trying to find a new one. Mine has a short in it, so I'm only getting sound from the driver side speakers. And apparently all the JY's I go to didnt even know my truck had one to begin with. If anyone knows where I can find one, let me know. I really dont wanna bypass the amp and hard wire speakers straight to an aftermarket head unit
