Default F150 dome light?

Okay, quick question. I want to swap to a dome/map light, but I don't want the bug eye looking one. Everybody says to go with a Mustang dome light. Today at the junkyard I found 3 97-03 F150's with intact dome/map lights, and they look no different one from a Mustang. So what's the difference?

Same thing, I had the same dome light in my old 97 F150. I actualy got my dome out of a Aerostar van but the lens was missing a clip so I pulled a lens out of a F150 so yeah they are definitely all the same lol. I guess the "Mustang" tag just stuck with this mod even tho its kinda misleading.

Alright thanks guys! I'll be picking one up this week when I go back.

Clinton, the ones from the older F-Series are the same as well. I think it was 94-96 that have the same style. They even have black to choose from.
