Here is a snap shot from the assembly manual. Tail lamp is attached to the stake pocket by a bracket.

Re: Tail lights mounting

This link shows both left and right. https://www.classicparts.com/Taillamps/products/121/

Still it might be a viable project for the Bloudon design team.

Possibly someone who has a pair sitting on the shelf can trace them out and mark down the measurements Unless you have an order ready to send to your favorite truck trinket vendor as they all should have them.
