Looks like the 2005's only fit 2002-2006, sorry :thud: 2007 & 2008 are their own breed.

Well, I think the problem is; at the top of the taillight, where it slants upward towards the tailgate, the slant is steeper on the 207-2008 models. So it would be more trouble than its worth for sure, i'm guessing you found a good deal on some '05's?

Well, since the '05 has less angle than the '08, i'm sure a welder could tack in a small piece and make it work, but that would probably only be an option if you have to repaint the bed anyway... But i'm guessing that the new bed matches your truck. I guess it depends on how much you don't like the '08 taillights...

Any update on this? I have guy who sells beds for a living who swears my 2005 Dodge 2500 tail lights will fit on his new takeoff 2008 Dodge 2500 bed (he does state that the 1500's ARE different).

Anyone actually try this?

Thanks in advance.
