I did mine - nothing like drilling about 20 holes in the top of your new rig - one for each with a whole saw.....my wife thought I'd lost my mind.

Is it hard - NO. Is it a PITA - YES.

The harness and lights you can get aftermarket, or go OEM from the dealer like I did. I think it was around $80 for everything. I measured and measured and when I thought I had it right I measured again. In my case everything is straight as an arrow, doesn't leak a drop and I love 'em. It took the better part of the day because we were so meticulous as I'm sure you can imagine. The hardest part IMO was working around the headliner to get the bolts on - it was a PITA but then again maybe I could have dropped my headliner down a bit more but I think there was a reason I didn't as I recall. The OEM harness plugs right in and is a snap.
There is a link on here somewhere to a guys site who did a great write up on it. I followed his write up but I've got pictures and all of my install I could post if anyone wanted to see 'em.

You should really look into Recon lighting accesories website or give them a call. I just bought some of there led cab lights with clear lenses and they also have clear lenses for the mirror turn signal/running lights. Really really like em. Had the dealership do it because i didn't have the time and was a little scared to anyway. Recon also has what they call a smoked version as well looks pretty cool my buddy got those for his white truck. I went with the clear because of the color of my truck, thought they would look better. They look really awesome at night especially they are quite a bit brighter than the OEM cablights i think. Sure do draw some attention when you pull in a parking lot at night anyways! Are more expensive than the regular ones but well worth it in my opinion.
