I found this while looking for the same answer for my '99 Frontier. I looked and sure enough there are two bolts under my bedliner - hopefully I'll have taillights tonight. =) Good luck.
If you have a bedliner, the two #1 Phillips screws are behind it. If you have a bed extender, the bolts that hold in the tails are the same for the brackets for the bed extender.
This also applies to newer Frontiers as well. Mine is a 2004. The bedliner concealed the 2 screws.
After removing the 2 screws the tail light assembly can be pulled slightly to the rear. There are 2 plastic plugs that are holding it in at this point.
Grasp the assembly at the top and bottom and pull firmly to the rear.
I suspect that as the vehicle gets older this plastic plug system will break. The female parts can be replaced as they screwed into the body.
To reassemble a sharp rap with the heel of the hand will reseat the plugs.

The 1998 Nissan Frontier is wired so one bulb indicates braking and parking light use. This is accomplished with a double-fliament bulb. The inherent advantage/flaw in this design is that one filament can blow while the other remains functional. This can be confusing when attempting to isolate and replace the defective bulb.
The brake light switch on a Nissan is located just behind the brake pedal. It sends a signal to the brake lights when the pedal is pressed to turn them on.
