The sockets for an 01 - 05 are definitely different from those of an '06 and up and do not fit.

I know they are different, but will the socket be able to fit the plug in? Or can I make it fit?

Guess you can make it fit by cutting the socket to the taillights. Currently, I have my '05 sockets crammed into the '06 and up ltailights. Although they do not "fit", they do stay in when the taillight is screwed in...

I've been thinking about getting new lights too, so hopefully there will be a follow up to this. I have an 07.


How about if anybody has pics of the 05 and the newer sockets and/or the holes in the light so we can compare?

The 01-05 sockets fit on an 06 as I found out thanks to hawaiianpt. Sold me his lights for a great price, but the 06 sockets wouldnt fit, so he gave me the 05 sockets and they plug right in to my wires.
