Tommy, Jim here.
Read your post. Just yesterday, I replaced my headlights on my 2002 Ranger xl. The new lights came with new mounting brackets/adjusters and I kept the old ones.
If my old ones will work on your truck, you're welcome to them. Do some research, make sure they'll work, and let me know. Also, if they look like they'll work, send me some pics of your old ones and a mailing address.
Hope this works for you, cheers, Jim.
