I tried removing the (2) 8mm bolts but could not get the tail light to side out. Is there a trick to it?

Once the bolts are out, pull firmly back. There is a clip at the front of the light assembly at the point. It feels like it will break, but it's just tight and will come out with a good pull.

yup just pull straight back. hard to grab from anywhere, I try to pry my fingers in at the front edge to push it back, and grab along the black edge in the tailgate jamb to pull it back.

What? Looking at the pics the taillights look 100% identical other than the sport taillights have a tint to the red portion. How did you determine there's a difference?

that's strange. Is it a 2011 vs 2013 thing? It doesn't make a lot of sense to have a different bulb just in the sports, but I can see them changing it totally for all of 2013 for whatever the reason.

I purchased these on ebay because they were a bit cheaper and the seller had better feedback.

They didn't work and the seller won't refund. I should have just spent the extra $10 on the lights you recommended. Now I have to open a dispute. Beware of this seller.

No we only have 1 reverse bulb per light. The other clear section is the turn signal. I swapped those to LED too....info is in another thread.

Yeah the down side to those ones is they don't have the perimeter LEDs that utilize the factory reflector to throw light to the sides as well instead of just straight back.

I hear ya though on returns, both sets of my fog light LEDs I tried didn't work, and both sellers are being a royal PITA on returns. The one guy wants to charge me a 20% restocking fee, when it's not my fault they don't f'ing fit an H11 when he advertised them as H11, and the other guy realized he can't accept returns since he uses a logistics center to ship for him in the US since he's in China, and he can't understand what I mean when I say one bulb works and one doesn't. I had to send him pics to show him one bulb doesn't work because he couldn't understand f'ing english! lol

I have a 2013 Limited. I just received mine and they fit with no issues. So there must be a difference in the 2011 model.
