'00-'05 Excursion taillight sockets

Can anyone here tell me what the full part number is on the back of their tail lamp socket(s) on any '00-'05 Excursion? I know they are 13411 but it appears there are several variations of that socket so I am looking for the full number off one of these models. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Can anyone help me out? It is just four screws and maybe a picture of the backside of the housing. It would be greatly appreciated and you would be helping several people out with this information as I plan to share with some other interested owners looking to make a mod.

Ok, got the pics onto photobucket but don't know where to find the URL to paste them here. After 8 years here on FTE you would think I could figure out Photobucket !PM me and I can send pics of the sockets to you.
I took them a few days ago. Already bought duplicate sockets along with the wiring pigtails so I can put two bulbs in each of my aftermarket tail lights.
Is this what you're doing ?

This is a Stop/Turn socket. Note the different color from the backup lamp

Back-up lamp socket. Didn't get the numbers though.

Photobucket Photobomb

This old dude got the pics posted but my god are they big !
And I just realized that they are the back-up lamp socket, not the brake/turn socket.
But you did also mention housing which implies the actual tail light- mine is aftermarket. I chucked the old Ford Van taillights.
If they're not what you need just let me know. Got my camera handy.

This is pic of the other stop/turn socket. It may be easier to read.

That is perfect. Thank you! Yeah I am using aftermarket housing as well. That is how this started. I have a motor coach that uses the van housing from the '92-'94 vans (11-5007-91) that needed replacing but I did some research and found that the '00-'05 Excursion housing (11-5007-01) while a different part number is the same dimensions so found a euro aftermarket version of those to put in the coach. Everything worked well except the sockets are not snug and are loose in the housing. I thought maybe the sockets were slightly different in the Excursion than the '92-'94 vans but your sockets appear to be the same as what I have. I guess my Asian made aftermarket part may just be off slightly. Anyone have suggestions to snug these up if this is a common issue? Maybe were to find some slightly beefier gaskets (like the ones in your side view pick)?

On a side note for those interested, my rig already uses the three sockets. The bottom (backup) is the "GC" like yours and my center bulb (stop) is the "EB" like yours. My top socket (turn) is "BC" but looks the same as the others and has the same color of the backup socket ("GC"). Not sure the differences between these but doesn't really matter I suppose.

Make some shims ?

By motorcoach maybe you have a class B ? I have a Fleetwood Jamboree that uses the typical Bargman triple tail light that I switched over to an LED style. That was easy, just cut and splice the wires !
Not sure how to tighten up those sockets. As you already know the tail lamps are the same on our Excursions as on the Ford Econolines- which is why a lot of us switch to something with a diffferent look. Your idea of an extra gasket may be worth a try. It would be a bit of a pain, but if you're good with an exacto knife you could make some shims for the sockets out of soft plastic like the lids on margarine tubs. Just put them against the bulb socket before putting the gasket back on. They just have to match the shape and diameter of the existing gasket. No need to cut complicated notches or anything like that. Good luck

Here's one of my tail lamp housings. They do sell a cool all LED version on Amazon for $250 a pair that look more like the OEM housings with a whole bunch of very bright LED's inside.

Class A 2000 American Tradition.

Yeah it's a good thing for me that they decided to use the Econoline van tail lights on the Excursion or I would have had no aftermarket options to choose from. Not so good for you Excursion owners since you have had to mod them to get something that looked better.
