Default mustang dome light

Ok, I know the tread is somewhere on these forums, but I couldnt find it. How would I go about putting a mustang dome in my truck? Would I have to rewire stuff? Goin to the JY tomorrow, and I need to know if it would even be worth the hassle to get a mustang dome. Please help. Thanks!

why dont you take your stocker out and snap a pic and take a look. It should have 3 screws, two wires and a ground. If it does, direct swap. The how to says 04+ need to add power wire but does not mention about reg cab or not. I am assuming you will not need to do anything but swap it in. I have domes left if you need one

Didn't get one. The more I think about it, it would probably look bad in my single cab, so I might not even do the mod.

In my '99 reg. cab, the Mustang dome light doesn't fit completely
flush to the headliner on the ends, and the map lights aim a little
high. But I still like it much better than the stock one.

Klinger your headliner looks a bit different than mine. Mine bulges out a little around the
original dome light location, causing the Mustang (actually Taurus) dome light to not fit
flush on the ends.

if it is all wired ( your new cargo light) you should just be able to unscrew the dome trim, pull the wires through, and place them through the new mustang dome light

----------

yo breeze, paint that trim a vibrant color. Don't leave it a boring shade like that. haha

I'd do it. I put a blue LED cargo light in my dome, but i don't have a mustang dome, just the reg. ranger dome.
