did your visors only have one wire? if so, you need to add a ground to each visor. it's easy, just put a screw in the metal behind the headliner with a piece of wire that runs back to one of the screws in the visor. the one wire visors ground through the mounting screws. the ex has all metal, so the screws ground, where as the rangers have plastic inserts for the screws.

the wires for the visors are green with a orange stripe. The green and orange wire from the ohc tie into both visor wires and then run to the dome light and tie into the green and orange wire there. Hope that helps!
