You can put them on. My truck has the console too and I had lights put on.

I bought the factory Ford lights and harness so it's all plug and play. I payed $125 to have a body shop install my lights. I bought all the lights and harness for less than $60 but I have a friend that works at a Ford dealership.

thats when the silicon comes in handy it sealed mine really good and the ones frome stealth that i bought if you go out and get some small nuts and bolts instead of the screws they come with it will pull those bases nice and snugg to the cab now worries bout leaking i think
