Icon5 tail light help

ok guys i was looking at getting some new tail lights and came across a set i found on ebay, that i really liked. but they say they are not made to fit the xlt model. my question is, are the rangers tailights different. here is the link to the lights, any ideas if they would fit?

I believe they are the same. Just remember, you get what you pay for, they are cheap lights so the will probably leak and let moisture in the lens in a short time.

Its total bull****, all the models have the same taillight size, and hole position, they said that for the tails i bought too and they are the same size and everything, i just had to drill out the top outside hole on mine because of they way they were built

The tail lights on the Ranger are all the same physically between '93(I think) and '08. Excluding the newer STX's that have Mazda beds.

Same phisical size....same bed. 94-08.

Like Mr. Trigger said...you get what you pay for. My cheapo ebay set didn't even fit the spot they were supposed to fit into.

GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR
sometimes they work great sometimes they dont
I bought a pair of aftermarket tails for my 04 ranger-elegant by TYC-paid $220
Never leaked and fit perfect
I just bought a pair off ebay for my F150-ebay store Kayee i think-paid $90 shipped
First pair leaked immediatly-exchanged-new pair sealed with silicone before install-dont quit fit perfectly but I can make do
Sometimes you can make them work- but you get what you pay for
