Are 02-06 Tail Lights Interchangeable?
I own an 02 Ram. I was wondering if I could put the 06+ style tailights (the ones with jutting out circles) in my 2002 Truck. The body styles differ slightly anyways, so i'm figuring that it would require little modiification to do this. Has this ever been attempted? I hope this is the correct forum catagory, if not can a mod move this?

First off, 02-06 have the same tails, they changed in 07 (&08). Yes they will work but your going to run into lighting issues as the 02-06 have two brake lights per side vs the 07+ have only one (per side). I believe the lower of the bulbs is brake/turn signal so you could just plug that one into the 07+ tail and leave the other unhooked. Mounting wise you shouldn't have issues, the beds are the same.

Btw you've definitely put this in the right spot.

Thanks! Yes 07 is what I meant. I have alredy looked at both sets and the 02's look like this:
(With the bulbs screwed into a wire bar)
And the 07's like this:

Wouldn't the plug hook up in the same way regardless? other wise yea I guess I could unscrew the middle bulb. If it doesn't fit, I can unscrew and put each bulb in seperatly, right?
