2000 2wd ranger.
Has anyone found a plug that fits into the cigarette lighter hole that looks half way decent?
The plastic broke so my lighter fell out. I don't need it and just want to fill the hole with something that fits and looks good. I wasn't sure if ford had some kind of cap that might plug the hole.

There is the plug in your accessory socket. All you need to do is head to the dealer and pick one up and trim off the tab it has. They're something like $15 and say "12V" right on them.

Thanks but that won't fit. It's too small. I took my old gear shift knob and stuffed it in the hole. It actually looks good :D

I would suggest duct tape...it's classy and has that manly appeal to it...

But you could also put in a switch for a set of lights that you can mount on your roll bar, front bumper, or roof mount...

Mine has done the same thing, but I'm actually trying to fix it. I tried to JB weld it in, and for some odd reason it didn't hold at all. I'm going to stick a marine 12v outlet in the spot where the OE one came out of.
