I been pulling this 1992 truck apart for a motor swap. I was looking at the tail lights and they looked so much better than mine and in better shape.so off to the swap. this takes 15 min to complete. here is the stock tail lights on my 1983.
here is the stock 1993 F150 lights on my parts truck.
there are 2 PHillips screws on the outside of the tail lights and 2 on the inside of the tailgate side. then remove the 2 light bulbs and light bulb sockets. then put the bulbs in the new lens assemblies. and put the 2 outside screws and only the inside bottom screw will fit unless you want to drill a new top hole. i did not worry about it.
here is a closer view of the new tail lights.
they turned out great. just to make the parts truck look too bad i put my lights in it. looks sorta funny.
this was a fast easy way to upgrade the rear look of your truck.......mike
Thanks very much for that guys. I'm actually going a bit further with this tail light thing. I want to put black smoked Altezas in. You might cringe but the lights do look very modern. I'll send a pic in when I have them fitted and the truck repainted.
just to add, the 87-91 and 92-96 F-150/Bronco taillights will work on the 80-86 Bronco as pictured. I have a set of 92-96 cleartails used only for car shows, and run the 88 lenses due to that larger backup light lens that ST83 mentioned as well as the "smoother" look and feel, JSM84
