Cab Lights -- is this an easy DIY project??

My F250 doesn't have cab lights and I want them!!!

HOWEVER, not sure I am interested in pulling the headliner out, running wires and drilling hole in the cab roof just to get that look.

Is this an easy DIY project OR is this a job for the dealer/local pro??

Anyone have tips or suggestions before I go down this path....

I was in the undecided "i don;t wanna drill my truck" boat until yesterday. I taped the roof over and measured about 14 times and dove in. It wasn't bad at all!

Had to park it with some real diesel muscle....
