Question Cab clearance light question ?

Does anybody know the thickness of the roof on a F250 Super Duty ( 04').
I'm trying to come up with a way to mount aftermarket cab lights and
before I start drilling I'd like to know what I'm into .
Thanks guys

I mounted my recon cab lights with #6 bolts, washers and nuts. The ones that come with the recon lights are like sheet metal screws and tend to strip out in the thin sheet metal.

most factory lights are screwed in with extruded u-nuts if that's helpful

my recons came with chit hardware they actualy came with screws that were meant to go into nylon push lock inserts ( the kind OEM would have say on a licsence plate in a square hole ) but the f tards didn't give you the inserts and who would mess with them anyway ?

you don't need SS screws because they should never see water but Jeremy called it I did use sheet metal screws but the thin gauge sheet metal is better suited for the nut and bolt

My factory lights had studs built into them and used regular nuts to pull them down snug to the cab
