How's it going everyone? Landan with Late Model Restoration. In this video, I'll be taking a quick look and showing you the simple installation steps on these factory style replacement tail lights fitting the 1993 to 1995, first generation Ford Lightning.

With the oldest of the first generation Lightning trucks now 24 years old, it's time for some restoration goodies. A very good and easy starting point to breathe new life back into your 1993 to 1995 first gen Lightning is set of these factory style tail lights.

They are going to improve the exterior appearance of your truck and replace faded, dingy or missing tail lights. Each tail light is an OE style replacement, a complete assembly and are DOT approved. In the box will be a driver side tail light with foam seal and a passenger side tail light with foam seal.

These tail lights are backed by a one year limited warranty which are warranted to be free from defects in materials and workmanship. For more information on the warranty, click the link in the video description.

Installation is very straight forward and should take no more than 10 minutes per side. Start by removing the two outer Phillips head screws. Lower the tail gate and then remove the remaining two screws while you hold the light with the other hand.

Pull the light from the bed side and rotate the bulb socket counter clockwise to remove it from the light assembly. Discard the old tail light and take this time to wipe down the area. Take the new tail light and wipe down the inside edge that will contact the bed side with alcohol.

Align the provided foam seal with the edge, peel the backing and firmly press the seal so that it adheres to the tail light. Reinstall the bulb socket by aligning the tabs and then rotating clockwise.

Position the light into place and retighten the 4 Phillips retaining screws. You’ll want to snug these down, so do not overtighten. Do the same for the other side. Double check your work, test for operation, and you’re all finished.

Quickly recapping here, these tail lights are an OE style replacement that arrive as a complete assembly minus the bulbs, and are DOT legal which makes them perfect for all gen 1 Ford Lightning owners!
