wait, whuuut? You say Rangers came with those HVAC gauges? AFAIK only Sport Tracs had them....the owner of that Ranger must have swapped for one.

And that makes me jealous that you found one of those in a yard like it aint no thang. I went to 2 yards here looking for one and even if they had had a Sport Trac, that gauge would have been pulled already like they always are.

It was on the ranger for sure man. I only took the face plate, and it wouldnt fit my truck. So I took my time, peeled the grey sticker off and peeled the black one off mine and stuck the grey on. I was really surprised at how well it stuck!

Those look better with the new owners. I wished I would have had the money to get that cluster from you last time Clinton. I may be ordering one for my truck for christmas. I get paid the 24th.

Tapped into the radio wiring, grounded it, then ran it to the relay for the hellas and wired them up. That is the deluxe Buggman set up, I strongly suggest getting it because the inner relay for the switch is pre-wired and its all a matter of T-taps and running 1 wire out to the engine compartment.

THREAD JACK

If anyone would like one of my OEM fog wiring conversion kits, just shoot me a PM... I have a couple of them made, tested & ready to ship in time for Christmas

I include a detailed installation manual with an update to include Clinton's "newer truck" wiring & the necessary wire taps, butt connectors & ring terminals. If your aftermarket lights didn't come with wiring, a relay or fuse, I can supply pretty much everything you'll need (except for the wiring for your new lights and the handful of hand tools) for installation for a small charge.

These things are TOP NOTCH stuff and it fills a very big void. I can't tell you how much of a pain in the arse it was for me to wire my extra switch up when I had an extra switch years ago. Funky stock switch wiring. Buggman's deals are a great deal and all the pain in the arse stuff is taking care of already for ya! Free plug!

DOUBLE THREAD JACK

I've also got a couple bezels that I'm stripping down to mod too
All the Explorer bezels will likely have that dumb wiper insert/button that has to be filled in/converted to a 12v outlet.
