No difference in size at all since 93 and there's no difference between the bed styles. Just differs with 2 and 3 light set-ups.

eBay sellers just don't know what they're talking about and I don't know why then include that for/

Rolldogg is exactly right, it doesn't matter which bed or which level(XLT,XL, EDGE) truck you have they are all the same i think except the newer STX's

Yeah. I made Daniel drive from Detroit to Grand Rapids for me to "Second try" the bulb so he could see me put the tails in correctly. Then we wired 'em... and now it is what it is.

ebay tails are ususally knockoffs.....and are not made to the quality that factory tails are. They usually don't fit right, made crappy, and you gotta probably drill holes and make the dang things work. At least that's been my experience with them.

yea most people say modification may be needed on these and I bought a set for a 1993 to 2000 Ranger and they were not suppost to fit an EDGE, stepside, or anything like that but they fit my 2003 XLT and RangerHaver from RPS has the same set for his 2001 stepside, you get what you pay for and nothing will be as good as stock fit
