Yes. You need to buy an 05/06 bumper, tail lights, and brackets. Two of the bolts on the tail lights do not match up and you will need to drill new holes for them. A little rewiring of the bulbs is also necessary. I used the JDM tails. There is no side marker bulb on the JDM tails, which was perfect because those sockets fit into the 05/06 reverse sockets. Remove one of the brake light bulbs from each side and extend the wires for the turn signals to get them in the middle. I took about 4-5hours to do the conversion. One last thing... The gasket does not seal well and water can get into the tails. Make sure you get the gasket on properly and if you see water in the tails get them dried out ASAP and find a way to get the gasket to seal better. I did the nuts too tight and cannot get the lights off so I had to drill holes in the bottom of the lights to get the water out, but I still get misting.

Good luck with the install ^_^
