those should fit.....the step side and regular side bed are the same lights in STOCK lights....but aftermarket lights have something different about them as far as aftermarket lights that dont allow both bedsides lights to be swapped...

you could always get another socket and T tap the brake/turn light and add another so you have 2 brake/turn lights....

Shane, you dont have to worry about that.....

^^^yours is not a plug and play.....you will have an empty hole that either needs to be filled......you will have to get another brake/turn light socket and wire it into the factory socket so you can plug it in....

let me do one for you now....

1. find a brake/turn socket for your year truck that has a couple inches of wire left...
2. use splice connectors and connect them to the same color wire on the plug that came with your truck orgionally....(you will have to extend the wires from the new socket so they will reach)....
3. Double check to make sure everything works properly...
4. use electrical tape to seal the connections...
5. Install the sockets in the proper holes....
6. Install the tailights in the bedsides with the 4 screws....

You now have completed the extra brake/turn light socket on your truck.....

it aint too bad......

it will work, but you will have a hole in your taillights.....that WILL collect water and dirt and start to look horrible....

you could just seal the back up with electrical tape and forget about it, but i dont think that would look good...

isnt there just an adapter at autozone or something that i can splice one time? and maybe in the extra hole slap a colored LED or something? like have a dual turn signal one being amber and one blue or clear?

I have a How-To over on Ranger Power Sports, but since Matt is one cool dude, I no longer have access to it. Feel free to go over there and search for it. Let me know if you don't find it and I'll make a new one and post it here!

It's really simple. Just a matter of squeezing together some quick-taps and wrapping it with tape!
