Before I start cuttin', will the Avalanche light work??

I have a 2002 GMC Envoy SLT. I've seen the posts where the Trailblazer folk are able to retro fit an avalanche light into their trucks with a minimal wiring change. My question is, will the avalanche light fit the 2002 Envoy, or are we stuck doing our own mod? Thanks!

If the lights on the 02-09 fit the same, the Avalanche should fit. I think going with the Avalanche would save me 4.5hrs and cost me about $60. But damn! that light looks good.

Thanks.

2yr update. (Wow its been that long already!)

A couple of the leds stopped working and some of the double sided tape started to let go. It hasn't prevented it from working completely and the tape hasn't changed visibility. I am probably going to look at the lights mentioned above or see if I can do a better job on this one.


Thanks again,
Outlaw

So awhile back my wife was driving to work and was running late as usual. she heard a whack on the back window and pulled over the third brake light assembly had broke loose and was hanging only by the wires. She decides that she is late and continues to drive until it broke the wires and fell on the highway leaving it there. Parts were quoted to me at 500+ So we went with out for awhile until went to have it inspected for new tags. It won't pass.
So I made an assembly using aluminum diamond plating and a trailer LED light bar and paint for under a hundred I made a new third brake light assembly and if some one tells me how to post pics on here I will glad to show it off.
