    Anyone know if the connectors are the same on the back side? The exterior shape looks identical to me.

    Yep, someone at TN said the connectors are the same, so they are a direct swap.

    If they fit and plug up correctly, the next step is to check to see if the flasher is the same part number, as LED's draw less amperage, and could possibally cause the fast flashing that indicates a bulb outage. How much cash are you pocketing by trading the older assemblies for the hideous '09 versions?
