So after searching for a cure on why my 3rd cab-mounted brake light on my '99 3.0 isn't working, I went out and checked fuse #2. It was intact but dirty.

Cleaned it and tested the cargo light. It works! Had the girl press the brake, no worky. Pulled the lens, then pulled out the socket with bulb.

The socket for the brake light is melted to the bulb, holding it tight.

What better time to upgrade to a LED cargo/brake light?!

Anybody have a source for a plug-n-play assembly?

Thanks in advance!

I bought a smoked lens led light off eBay, think it was like $50 for the one I got, but it looks great and was plug and play.

Contact Bugman on the other ranger forums. He makes them. I had him do my ranger's superduty 3rd brake light in LEDS. Came out awesome and bright!

Last picture is a comparison of his standard LED 3rd brake light that I had for many years, then his newer style in the super duty. Better than any of the eBay crap that is out there.
