Talking The First Vehicle I Own

Hi!
I just bought a 1996 Ranger XLT V6 3.0L, and there is a lot of work to be done. I'm excited to work on it with the help from this site.
A few problems I have are that the Engine Coolant Gauge doesn't work, I replaced the Sending Unit but that didn't do anything. When I open the driver's side door the dome light doesn't come on, but it does for the passenger side. I just put some WD-40 on the latch so I'll see if that fixes it. The center arm rest doesn't have a latch so I have a piece of rope around it keeping it down. Those are the main things that I want to get fixed.
I also have two Kicker Speakers that I need to install and I'm not sure if I should replace the front two speakers or the back two speakers, any suggestions?
Thanks!
