Lightbulb Peterbilt Cab Lights on a Superduty?

Has anybody ever put Peterbilt cab lights on an F250/F350 or seen this done? Was just a thought of mine because I want to put cab lights on my F250 since I grew up in a Peterbilt and also drive one now so it seemed kind of cool to do but I cant find pictures of this done anywhere so I was looking for opinions. The lights are 10 1/2" long and 3 1/4" wide at thw widest point.

What do you guys think???

Here is what they look like:




Here are two trucks with them:





And here is my truck now...

Maybe you could be the first Hailey.

One thing I would do....if you can...is, if you have access to the lights, is to set one or more on top of the truck to see what it might look like. Because of their size, it may or may not look good and would give you a chance to see what they would look like before you go drilling holes. Just a thought.

Thats exactly what I am doing, I have a set laying around at my dad's shop so when I can get a hold of them next week I am going to set them on top and take a look. The size is why I was concerned... I will post some pictures when I do a trial fit.

I think they would be cool as heck! I think they make LED inserts for those beehive style bulbs now too, plus clear lenses if you like those. My 07 379 has the flatter style cab lights.

The PB lights are curved to fit the edge of the roof, superduty lights are flat.... You might have to modify the light base or move the wholes in your roof. That would be alot of body work just for lights IMHO.... But it would look very nice.

Oh yeah would definately go with LED's, the ones I am looking at have 13 diodes in them so the should be bright as hell. The style you have is awesome, especially the clear but I am thinking the rounded style would work better.

The Torpedo style cab lights have flat bases actually so I just need to take some measurements.
