My dealership wanted $875, I laughed and walked out while the guy was still talking.

100 sounds about right, I charged a guy about that but had the headliner down already. they are about 125 from ford for the lights and wiring. take about 1-1.5 hours to install. Ive added a couple other sets and none have leaked.

Do it yourself. I did mine. It was easy. There is enough people that have done it on here and enough links to be able to do it successfully.

They're a full set, I know you can check out gorecon.com and you'll see a set thats just lenses and one thats got the whole light for all 5 and a wiring harness.

Very easy install as everyone else has said. Recon actually sent the instructions posted above with my cab lights when I ordered them. I'm not very mechanical and it took maybe 2hrs, just make sure you buy the right tools. Be aware the instructions he provides runs them down the passenger side, and I think now with 08ups they have to go down the drivers side.
