As merchjo said there should be some screws somewhere behind the headlight bucket; location and head type vary but they'll be torx or small hex.  I forget the torx size but the hex is usuaully 4mm (and a racheting type wrench is a blessing if it's way out!)

Thanks (to everyone) for all the suggestions. I've decided that I'll
probably end up getting the trailer wire harness, since that would most
likely be the easiest way to do it.

Well, I just don't like the stock tail lights too much, and most aftermarket
(clears and such)  ones are illegal. So, I decided to go with some
better-looking legal ones :)

Subject: Ranger Drive Train Noise Question
From: "Rick L. Anderson" <r.l.andersonjuno.com>


Greetings All,

Vehicle: 1992 Ranger, 4X4, Extended Cab, 5 speed manual, 4.0L

Got a nose problem, in my drive train, which has recently surfaced that
has me stumped.  The noise is a "ticking-type" sound, from under the
vehicle, which occurs only when my truck is moving forward.  It never
happens in reverse.  This noise comes and goes.  When I can hear it, it
seems to disappear when I get above 30MPH.  However, from time-to-time, I
have heard it above that speed.  To troubleshoot it, I jacked up the rear
axle and supported the differential case on jackstands.  I then ran the
rear wheels in a "free spinning" condition through various speeds and was
not able to reproduce the noise.  I do not have a "dyno" to "load-up" the
drive train in a controlled manner.  I inspected the entire driveshaft
and the U-Joints are in good condition with absolutely no slop in any of
them.  I inspected the carrier bearing and do not see any visible damage
or problems.  Has anyone else experienced this kind of problem and, if
so, what was the problem/fix.

Thanks much for the assist.

Cordially

Subject: '92 V6 Quits at 3k Rpm


My '92 Explorer started just shutting off at 3k rpm the other day. This
was while accelerating, in gear. The tach would just drop like the key
was cut off. Once it dropped below 3 it would cut back on. It seems to
have stopped doing it today. Anyone have any idea where to look for the
cause?
Thanks,
Bill G

I ran into this problem when I went looking at trailers. The trailer dealer
know exactly what was needed. He had an adaptor.

2000 Rangers' have 2 bulbs, one for reverse and one which is the blinker,
brake, and running light.

Do you have wheel covers?

I had a ticking noise that would only show up at low speed turning left.
I was convinced I had a bad wheel bearing.

My brother popped off the wheel cover and no more ticking.......

My best response to that high tech fix was.....D'OH!!!
