anything from a 01-07 are the same corners....only difference is that the 06 and 07's are clear with a oranger stripe in it and the 01-05 are solid orange......

yep any taillight from a 98-07 will fit but the 98-99 tails have a 3 bulb setup its easy to retrofit though......but a 00-07 taillight will work perfectly

personally i have the ones off ebay.....it depends if you like the orange stripe like on the 06-07's....and u know the OEM ones are going to be a better quality...but i have had no problems out of my ebay ones...they look good either way...that would be yer call
