Might as well get as many as you can. They strip out rather easily because they only have 2 threads. Once you remove that trunk panel to monkey with the tail lights they are toast and will never stay on right again. They use one of the threaded posts from the taillights to secure the trunk panel.
Any misalignment in replacing that panel will result in those pins not sitting right either...so get a few extra to have around when the replacements go south too.
They've been using that same pin since at least '05
