How hard to change 94 Tail lights to 95+

I have a 94 NAS D90 with the square rear tail lights. I was just wondering how hard is it to change them over to the round tail lights found on the 95-97 D90s.

Why change? Part of the uniqueness of the '94 trucks is the square tail lights.

Check out my 145/500 resto thread. It doesn't have dimensions or measurements, but it shows how the round lights cover the old holes.

Personally, I H8 the square lights. It really does look like a trailer or commercial truck body. The round lights are much better looking IMHO, but the downside is that the OEM units are inferior to the square ones.

I wouldnt bother with the swap unless you're willing to go LED.

There are issues with interference except if you use LED.


The stock round lights are crap. They corrode badly. Square last forever.

If you remove the square lights as a set, hold on to them and let me know. I'll buy them off you. Got the light cages as well??
