Is there a difference in the long and short bed taillight panels/bed extensions on a unibody? Mine are pretty beat up and was going to look at some in a local junkyard.

Yes, the SWB & LWB are different, but in a pinch, a handy guy with some fab skills can make one work on the other, but there is some sweat equity required.
There is a thread on here where this was discussed, and the OP put up pics of where he had to make changes (where the body line from box panels flows into the taillight panel, and also where the hinge mounts.)

I'll see if I can locate that thread, if I do, I'll post the link;)

Here it is! And my memory apparently isn't that good, because the changes required are at the very top and where the hinge mounts......

Might want to note Foodstick's comments on that post!

Yes. I seen them. That why I asked. If I knew for sure they are for a short bed I'd grab them.
