Cab clearance lights

I'll have some free time over the holidays and a warm place to work, so I was thinking of installing some more toys on my truck. Cab clearance lights look pretty cool, but there are tons of different types of them for sale.

I like the Ford factory lights. I was wondering if anybody knew a source to get these at a reasonable price and what is involved in installing them.

I got mine here...
Stealth Automotive. Dodge Cab Roof Lights 94-98

The dodge ones are the same, and since you don't have bases it's what you'll need.

You'll have to cut 5 big holes and 10 small satelite ones in your roof to install them.

i have sold quite a few of these... Stealth Automotive. Dodge Cab Roof Lights 94-98 .....they are the older dodge lights but look as close to stock as the Fords. plus you can get them in diff colors... they are lenses, base, and bulbs only... you will have to wire them up yourself... i had some harnesses made that will be cheaper than ford OEM harnesses but i wont get them for a couple of more weeks.... let me know if you have any other questions

As for the wiring, do you have an issue splicing your factory wiring one time? If not, just get about 8 feet of red wire, and about a foot of black wiring and each light you can ground with a 2" piece of black wire. 16-20 gauge should do the job.

Getting a harness that plugs in would be nice though.

I don't mind doing the wiring. If you've seen any of my other threads with all my electronic goodies, you'll see wiring is the least of my worries. LOL

What makes me nervous is drilling holes in the truck. Are there any templates available or at least accurate measurements so I won't screw up and drill somewhere I shouldn't?

Raul, I'll shoot you a PM when I'm ready to order. It'll be a week or so before I'm at my dad's in Houston. I'll be doing the work down there. It's 20 degrees, and the wind is blowing 25 MPH here, so I don't think I wanna be climbing on my roof. LOL

LOL That's a problem because everybody I directly know has 250s that don't have the lights.

Another truck would be the best. I could just put some blue tape on the roof and mark the centers of each light and then transfer the tape to my truck.

A buddy of mine installed some on his '95 Dodge. When he got the headliner off, the holes were already marked from the factory on the inside of the roof. Not sure if Fords are like that or not, though.
