Default Aftermarket Tails

I know this has been asked a few times, but has anyone been successful with getting an oem fit with aftermarket? if so, i'd appreciate it if i could be pointed in the right direction as far as what brand and where to buy.

forgot to mention, 2002 n/a

maybe my querie was a little vague.

i've read that a lot of after market tails don't fit properly, ie, there maybe gaps, etc. i'm just trying to get an idea of which brands will fit as well as the stocks.

I'm on my 5th set of after market tails and they all left a small gap around the outside. Some small, some large. I'm not sure why that is and I haven't tried all makes of tails so there might some that fit like OEM, it's just that I've never saw one.

Dill, you say yours fit, but looking at the picture you have on PickledPT.com, I can see the small gap around the lights. OEM light don't have it.

Yes, i wasnt sure what the OP meant so my post can be defined as,

They fit without exposing the hole the light goes into, but there is a small section on the top where they dont fit into the depression perfectly, and as said above,trim rings workor even black or chrome trim like what you put on your doors you can buy at autostores

Not sure how your supposed to zoom in but they do look like they fit as good as OEM. Don't see the tell-tale space around the edge. Who was the maker or were they a one-off kind of light.
