Hold on let me try to look up the measurments for the cab lights. I installed them on my truck about a year ago. No leaks at all. Its not bad really. Measure twice cut once. I used some of my girlfriends eye liner and masking tape to lay out for the lights. You have to drill three holes for each light. Which ones did you get?

You have to pull down the headliner a little bit to be able to get to the bottom side of the lights

Measure, measure, and measure again before you cut or drill.

Just take your time, it not as hard as it seems.

FYI- I threw the screws that came with the kit away and bought some stainless steel nuts and bolts.

I done it to my truck.. pull the head liner all the way out for you don't have to worry about anything and yes measure way more than once and go from there... just use a dry earse marker and u will be fine... and like said before use some silicone and no leaks

hey, im trying to put these lights on. it says measure 5.5" from the windshield rubber. is that for every light? or like measure 5.5" on the left then the right and tape a straight line? do the lights go in a straight line or curved?

if i measure it 5.5" in several spots it makes a curved line.

anyone?
