Get a mustang dome light from member Pooleo or member Buggman might have some Mustang Domes w/ LEDs, I dont think you can fix the broken tabs...or you could go to a JY and get a new cover

Around $20ish, go to the classifieds here, I have dealt with Pooleo and Buggman both are excellent sellers and Clinton also sells the mustang dome lights too he is an great member too. And with the Mustang Dome you can have both map lights on at once or just the center light. I love it compared to the bug eye one I had from the factory.

You would have to replace the lens for sure if you want to keep te stock dome light. You could swap in a mustang light if you'd like. I prefer the stang light with LED's. Even without the LED's it lights the truck better and the map lights are real nice to have and brighter as well. Also, stang lights dont break as easily like the OEM bubble domes. If you would like a stang light, I have a few for sale and I can paint it for you.
