    A guy down the road is selling some euros from his 98. Will they fit my 02 model?

    They will physically fit up, but they won't work right. The grounding scheme changed in 2001.

    Im 99% sure that you can use the wiring harness off of the 02, and they will snap into the 98's

    As far as the phisical dimensions; identical...

    that shouldnt matter.. you take the bulbs out of one tail light and put them in the other one.. then screw it back to the truck..

    yes, as i believe they will twist right in..

    I remember i bought a set off of an 04, and they fit on my 00, and they came with the 04 harness, and they were different.. But i removed them and used my 00 harness. so i cant see it being a problem to swap them the opposite way.
