Low profile cab lights???

So I am selling my 06 f250 this coming weekend and picking up an 04 f350 SRW from a close friend of mine. Anyways, It has cab lights and I am not a big fan of them. I have looked at Go Recon smoked ones and they are just so big! I saw somewhere where someone had put on a set of go recon smoked cab lights for a dodge and they were smaller and sleeker. Is there any reason not to do this? I don't know anything about cab lights so plz educate me. Is there just a small hole with a wire to hook up or is it an actual recessed portion there? Or are there any alternative options for me.

2004 F350 SRW 4x4 CC/SB Lariat black
Current mods:
8" black chrome stack, airaid intake, arp studs, blue spring, and 6.4 banjo bolts, ford gaskets, egr delete, leveling kit, cooper STTs, Warren 175/75, HPOP, TSD tunes, and Coolant filter

Future: regulated return, sump, fass 150

You could always put in some smoked 3rd Gen Dodge cab lights. They are lower profile than stock Ford ones.

the only difference maybe. if you have factory ford lights, the base mounting may be spaced differently. buying aftermarket lights and installing on truck that never had them is easy, they even come with a template for spacing.

Subscribed, would like to see the results.

I don't know why the spacing would be an issue. Just the preexisting holes where they mount, the dodge might have a little different configuration for the mounting screws.

I got a set of the dodge recon smoked lights sitting in my room but I can't get the confidence to drill holes in my roof. I would also like to see some pics.
