i dont think so actually. i think in some aftermarket tail lights, the angles of the screw holes are different.

i got some euro lights that were for up to 00 and they didnt screw in right at the tailgate screws.

just a thought.

I have 98 taillights in my 03 Truck... the sheetmetal is all the same. You must have just got a bum pair of taillights Gildo.

ok, there is ONE PROBLEM

00-04 taillights have a 2 bulb settup

93-99 taillights have a 3 bulb settup

so im not sure how your aftermarket tails look, because normally you can just drill a new hole for the 3rd light, but if you dont have the room on the aftermarket tails (like no spot for the light on the bottom) i wouldnt recommend it

Oh, yeah, forgot about that... for the euros, all they have to do is either leave one lense empty, or get a new bulb and socket and mirror the turn/brake bulb.

To put the 2-bulb taillights on a 3-bulb truck, you need to get a little converter at Autozone.. its designed to splice into a 3-bulb system and make a single bulb signal for a trailer (on vehicles that don't have a trailer connection.) It costs about $10-20 and instead of running the new connection to a trailer, you run the new connection to the single turn/brake/taillight bulb.

i cheated when i did mine
i put the 00's on my 93 i just cut off the turn signal and rev harnesses and put the rev plug on turn harness and it works just no rev lights. i didnt feel like doing all that other wiring stuff
