Replacement Tail lights

Hi All,

Today my copilot decided to back our Alpine into a wall. It severely damaged a tail light and punctured the fiberglass. I have heard that Alpine coaches have Ford Econoline tail lights--true?? if so, what year are the from?

The Alpine Ltd does use Ford Econoline taillight assemblies. I am not sure exactly what years, but if you find a listed model with something like 1999- 2003 you will be good.

It's a 1994 Econoline light.

Now would be the time to upgrade to those LED tail lights you've always wanted LOL. You know with the current guilt trip and all...OOPS did I say that out loud...sorry.
A quick search on aftermarket sites will probably get you a pair of LED tail lights at a decent price.
Just a thought, I know I'd be taking advantage of the situation
Cheers Rick T.

The Tail Light Assembly, which was on the Alpine Coach, was also used on the Ford Excursions.

Before you buy any LED tail lights be sure they are DOT approved. The last I checked there were no DOT approved lights. I would check at truck stops, they will be there first.

You can go with a economical aftermarket "stock" style replacement like this:
New Tail Lights Taillights Taillamps Brakelights Set of 2 Left Right Side Pair | eBay


To a more "modern" mid-priced style like this:
2000 06 Excursion 1995 06 Econoline Van E Series Black Tail Lights Rear Lamps | eBay


To a full LED replacement like this:
Econoline Ipcw LED Tail Lights Ledt 502CR | eBay

The reason WRV used the 1994 version was because it had separate amber turn indicators. In later years Ford went back to flashing brake lights so be very careful when you look at the options mentioned above.

Usually there will be a converter already installed that combines the brake & turn signals for use with trailer wiring. Most if not all trailers use the single bulb style lights. If a guy wanted to install the LED tail lights, it would just be a matter of rewiring to use the signal from the converter.

I'm just sayin.....

The amber turn indicators on the coach match the amber turn indicators on the CR-V toad. The 6 pin connector on the coach was wired that way at the factory, at least on mine.
