When you're looking to buy those tail lights you mentioned, one look at them will tell you if they'll work or not. '99 & '00 was a bit of a lengthy transition for the change in body styles. Some models hung on longer than others before the switch. If it looks like the same tail light, then it is. It will be obvious to you when you see a picture of the lens before you buy it.
If it doesn't have amber in the lens, then it is NOT the correct one for your 2005. The shape difference will help tell them apart as well.

Congrats and welcome! Nice rig! What does the "only right turns" mean? And "4LO"? Does that mean no 4LO? Do a search for auto wrap film on the old interweb and you may get lucky on a match. And yes, your Oil Sender is most likely shot. Very common on those. Looking forward to seeing more. Lots of experienced folks here.

The top most button is traction control, the button below that has a power train diagram with front wheels aimed right... This is where I'm confused. Is my vehicle only 4 high and 4 low?

The final button is 4 with a down arrow. Beefy. My previous vehicle was an '02 Envoy XL i4.2 4x4, did not drive near as well as this one does ❤️

Per Carfax:

1GNEK13TX5J155***
5.3 V8 F
RWD W/ 4×4

The 3 electronic drivetrain buttons on the dash appear to be:

[Burn the **** out]
[Only right turns]
[4lo]
CarFax is fairly accurate so I'd wager yours is normally 2wd with selectable 4wd. Your bottom button is 4wd LOW for deep sand, snow or off-road. Maybe post a photo of that button cluster ?
