I believe LED Tail Lights for one. But you need to make sure they were not retrofitted on a 2003. I had a Feb 14, 2003 build and it was MY2003, one of the last before the LEDs came out. March 03...

Yeah, it's about 1/2 inch shorter when installed. It gets colder than the OEM knob on cold days. :) It's a full metal knob (outer shell anyway) vs. a leather wrapped softer one, so the feel does...
