Try http://www.geocities.com/ttlic_2000/mbody.html

It's a U-haul site. I'm sure you can find what you want there.

You're U-haul is a close cousin to the Burro, but I think the tail lites are different.

This doesn't mean you should go away we like new members and we like pictures.

It's a U-haul site.
From the site listed above:
Don't ever back up and break a tail-light lens, it is about [b]the only item that is irreplaceable unless you intend on more fiberglass work, and installing another lens of some sort similar to the Burro. I have been looking fo something similar with the same curvature, but to no avail.

From the site listed above:

I'm sure the tail lens on the below page, isn't original, but the curve of it, reminds me of the tail lenses on Renee's 73 Chevy P/U. Would be very easy to cut one down to fit with a coping saw. You might try it.... try to get a used one to find out. You can probably find a cracked one at a junk yard for almost nothing.

Then, if it will work buy new, and use the old one as a template. Or if it comes close, but is too large, you might trim the fiberglass a little larger and use the whole assembly... graft it to fit, and inherit backup lights on your U-Haul... in the process. Looks close guys! Hope it will work for you!

Great idea Elsie! However if you have an application this won't work and you absolutely positively want one to match...these people will make one for you:
