Does anyone know if there are any differences between the tail light panel for these years? Do they all interchange? Thanks Larry

There were 2 different colors (dark and light) but I think the plastic backing is different on different years. Not 100% sure though.

I'm not sure....I think I've seen some that have the pink tint to the reverse lights lenses and ones that are clear.....mine are the pink ones and I think they look funny.....

I never noticed that before. Shocked The right tail I got at the boneyard matches the left on ours, even though I didn't look at the year of the wrecked car.

Two colors, red and black. Minor design differences between years. But not really noticeable.

Nope, some 04s have the red lights and some 04s have the black lights. Take Sabrewings ride and mine. Both 04s but his came with the red lights until he swapped them, and mine came with the black lights.

Oh okay. Maybe mid-year change or something?

I thought that too, but it's not the case from what I've seen with the exception of the 05 models. I don't think I've seen 05s with the red tails.

I just spent 45 minutes in the dusk replacing the original backup bulbs with SilverStars. Would not have taken so long if I would have had a 10mm deep 3/8 or a 1/4 extension plus the right bulb falling out into the lens didn't help either. Sad

Do you notice a difference with the SilverStars?
