First, here are two photos of the gap. When I installed the lamps, I put a strip of black weatherstripping on the inside leading edge of the bumper. It prevents seeing tru the gap. Disregard the water, as I just washed the car.
As for install, simple as could be. They are plug & play. There are 4 retainers holding the truck panel. Once removed, there are 3 nuts to remove on the old taillamps. Then unplug and push the rubber grommet thru. New ones just slide in, bolt them up, and plug them in. Took all of 10 minutes.
I can take the panel off....which would also show my over the top stripe. Just not sure yet if I want the back concave or with the Matte Black Panel. If the Faux Gas Cap wasn't such a pain, I would remove the panel.

That definitely helps to blank out the underlying view but what I also see is the reduced angle of the kink in the light showing against the sharper one of the bumper cover. When I commented previously on "gap", that was what I was thinking.
Thanks for the additional photos.
