Thanks. I bought them on eBay awhile back. They just slide into the bed roll and fit perfectly. Theyíre LED and very visible. Hereís a link:

Mine have the clear lense but the bulb is red.

Aftermarket parts are hit or miss. My old hinges were chewed up so I purchased these. Kinda hard to tell from the pic but there's a noticeable gap between the tail gate and the bed.

Re: '50 3600 re-do. Shortening things up!

Not much progress but I'm finding more and more stuff to fix. This mess under the dash has to go. Got a new harness from Speedway, thinking about putting it under the seat for easier accessibility. Iím getting too old to be doing contortions to get under the dash! I already have the TPI computer under there now. May end up moving the Dakota Digital components under there as well.
