Default Overhead dome light ?

I wanna know if anyone knows what are my options for replacing my stock dome light in my single cab. Other than a mustang dome light. And will it bolt right in also will i have to add wire to it? Any info would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Explorer doesn't fit too well in reg cabs, but it'll work. Lil bro has one.

Mustang

Ranger 'bubble' dome (xcab trucks up to 03). My personal fave. After having an Expo and a Stang, I went back to the stock 'bubble'. Provides the best light. 2nd best option IMO is the stang. Map lights are precise. Not much experience at all with regcabs in regards to the dome light, so I can't really give an opinion other than an Expo doesn't fit too well fit and finish wise.

you may be lucky and already have the 3rd power wire as the in style i had the mustang light,still have it kicking around,but i replaced it with my old stock unit after the OHC mod was done.I was never a fan of how the map light was projected in a ranger any how but it was better than nothing i had before.
