Hello, everyone! I am new to the site and was wondering about changing out my cluster for one that has a tach, there seems to be some really sharp people on here and I would say someone has done this very thing before and would know what needs to be done to do this. My truck is a 1996 Ranger 2.3L 5 Speed 2WD, thanks for all your help!

Welcome to the site. It's been done many times and I believe there is a writeup on it somewhere on the site, perhaps in the tech library.

I have the same exact truck as you. I have a Sport Trac cluster with tach and white face gauges. The swap is plug and play. For door ajar the low fuel light comes on I think. Then you can swap the Ranger temp resister with the Sport Trac resister.

ull need the sport trac cluster and the circuit card it goes on the corner. that way the fuel gauge will work.
u can do some simple rewiring for the lights that changed place on the cluster.
i did it on mine, but since mine is a 99 it had the new light locations.

the new cluster already has it on the top corner. thats why. sometimes it doesnt come with the cluster. and the non tach cluster card wont work on the new one.

good its working fine.
