Default 2003 Tail Light Swap

Hello i was wondering if i could swap the taillights on my 2003 edge flareside to the lights from a 2006-up ranger? Are the flareside bed tails any different in shape than the stylesides?


Ones I have now

Ones I want

Yup the same

Cant get the backup light mixed with the brake light either cause the sockets are both different sizes so they will only fit in one hole

I don't recall exactly what year they stopped the 3-bulb taillights in favor of the current 2-bulb setup, but even for those years they are swappable. Swapping the tails is something you don't have to put much thought into since they're so easily interchangeable.

Sounds about right. I was thinking 2000 but I knew it was somewhere around then.

2000 was the first year to go 2 bulb IIRC. 98 & 99 still had the Red/White/Amber tails IIRC.
