Default 04+ tail lights on a 99

I've a 99 ranger I like the looks of the newer tail lights better. Which years will fit on a 99?

93-present will fit on your 99. However, the Ranger switched from your 3 bulb setup to a 2 bulb setup in '00.

Great, so they'll still work. So whenever I switch out the tails, I'll just have 1 bulb that doesn't have a slot to fit in? Other than that everything will line up and work?

there are instruction in the how-to section so you can convert from 3 bulb to 2 with a trailer harness its a change from 2 single filament bulbs to a double filament bulb think your brake and turn signal sharing the same bulb

Any stock taillight from 00+ is going to require you to do the 3-bulb to 2-bulb swap.

You do not have to do the 3-2 bulb conversion. There is a spot for a 3rd, just have to dremel out the hole for it. Just make that one your blinker.
