Tail light swap?
 
Has anyone swapped tail lights from a 2007-08 to a 2002-05 ram? Is it possible to swap the tail lights? i thought about swapping mine but just wanted to see some pictures of someone that has done it.

One thing to remember, the wiring is different on the two tail lights. It can be done and they will fit (I checked that out with a set of 2005's on my 2007) but they do need to be rewired.

Ok thanks Maddog. Any advice on the rewire?

Like Maddog indicated, they physically fit, but the wiring is different.
The 02-05 have 2 lamps. 1 does park/turn, the other does park/stop
The 07/08 have 1 lamp. It does park/turn/stop.

Pulling at 02-05 on an 07-08 is easier than the other way, as you always tap of the High level brake light to power the stop lamp. The other way will require some specialized electronics.
