Anyone put cab lights on?

I am wanting to put a set of cab clearance lights on my 08 FX4. Anyone done this yet? I am planning on using the Recon Dodge ones since they are more of a lower profile and LED to boot. Would help to have measurements or a template of some sort.

Thanks,
Viper

best and easiest way is to get a friend that already has cab lights from the factory and measure... here is a good write up on how to do it too: Motoman's Madness

Im confused... Why would you want to try to make the dodges work when Recon makes ones specifically for the 08...

Do you not like the smoked out ones?

the dodge lights will fit the contour of the trucks roof.
