Would prefer a factory one, but would consider an aftermarket if the price is right. Thanks,

Better specify regular/crew cab vs. extended cab; the extended cab piece is different and they do not swap out.
Usually tough to find good used ones anyway, either the base has gone bad from the circuit traces corroding or sockets being burnt up, and the lens jacked up where the screws hold it down...and of course, gasket rotted.
I know the new assembly costs too damn much but it's honestly the best bet.

I ve got one off my 96 regular cab.

My bad, need one for extended cab.

i can get one. you want the whole thing or just the lense?
and like said above kinda.... the inside plastic and bulb sockets are usually melted looking but most ive seen still work fine. they just didnt use tuff enough plastic on those lights oem that can handle the heat from the bulbs being turned on to long from cargo or brake lights. it would be best to put some leds inside them for them to last even longer without issues.

I think I need the entire light because the screw holes are stripped so my current one does not attach to the cab well. Addiction, what do you have and how much?

The screw holes are clips in the sheetmetal of the cab, nothing to do with the lamp housing itself.
Now the two holes in the lens have places where the screws hold against it, those can break out from being overtightened then of course there's nothing for the screws to hold against so the lens will fall off.

Maybe it is just the lens I need...........I would go take a look at it right now, but the truck is at the trans shop.
