Remove cab lights?

Anyone out there ever remove their cab lights? I would much rather remove them than put smoked covers on them. Anybody have any suggestions?

That would be pretty difficult becuase in order to install the roof lights holes had to be drilled in the roof so if you remove them you will have about 10 to 15 little holes in your roof you will need to fill in and then you would have to get your roof repainted if you get them filled. I would put the smoked covers on becuase otherwise you will be spending a good amount of money to get those holes filled

i agree.... you will have to get the holes filled in and then repaint the whole top of your truck again..... easier and cheaper to just go with lenses

I'd rather have none but I may have to go smoked at the very least. I like the look of a nice smooth vehicle and the cab lights just don't fit into that. They have always made made think of a "grandpa truck" whenever I see them.

cab lights

I actually went through the trouble of installing cab roof lights. You will have 15 holes to fill and you will need to pull the headliner down to get the lights unbolted. The smoked lenses look pretty nice. I would go that rout. The lenses will come with orange bulbs but the existing lights have white bulbs. keep the white bulbs in as they look better at night with white light over orange light showing through the smoked lenses. You will have a totally different look with the smoked lenses.

You may want to make a template of the running light hole, than try to find some 1/2"- 3/4" rubber and transfer the template to the rubber, as for the screws holes bondo.... Seems like too much trouble I would just go the with the clear lense.

I guess I am a grandpa. As are many other folks here on the ORG.

It's all in what you like. I had to have mine with cab lights. I know others hate 'em.
