Out of those three options the first set look the best. Some "06 + tails like korey89 posted would look best imo, but you would need to modify them for a three bulb set up or convert your truck to a two bulb set up.

third. also, funny as it seems, is the only one with a built in reflector (middle section) which makes them legal. all rear facing red lamps must have a red reflector (in case the bulbs go out, the reflectors help the cars behind see you)
this is a DOT requirement. look it up.

All of those posted have reflectors.


imo....06+ FTW!

contact Casper98. He's got the 3 bulb setup on his 06's on his '98 truck. They mount right up to any 93+ bed.
