Tail lights for 1989-93 Dakota interchange with what other trucks?

I have an 1988 Dakota with the completely square/wreck tangle shaped back tail lights. For some reason with first generation Dakotas no one makes euro lights, just the stock fixtures. What is odd is other trucks with other square fixtures have euro lights like Chevy's s10 from the '90s or the 1990 to 1996 Ford F150. I am curious if anyone here has maybe all three of these vehicles or several or any other close fit trucks or cars and can tell me if any of the screws and brackets line up?



Thats the back of a '88-'92 Dakota tail light fixture.


1992 Chevy tail light fixture.

I am wondering if I am going to have to instal other support brackets or kinda sand off some of the metal behind the fixture on the Dakota to shape it up?

Also why do you guys think they don't make euo lights for the first gen Dak? I want opinions on that for the sake of discussion.
