It's not as hard as you think...

All you have to do is measure...Measure...MEASURE!

Its not really that hard like he said i did it to both my trucks, just make sure to mock them up when you get it all measured to make sure it looks good to you before you drill. and make a template of the base of the lights it makes it way easier to mark holes

but as for where to get them just go to the junkyard, i got all 5 lights and harness for like 30 bucks because they are scrap pricing it so they have no idea how much they are worth

I'm taking mine in to let the pros handle this one... Don't have the Ba**s to drill the holes. I have a reputable Truck Accessory shop who's charging $350 for OEM installed. But, to make sure they do it correctly, I found this picture online and created a diagram. PLus I'll be there to look at the planned placement before they drill

LOL Its not that hard at all. Did mine in about an hour. Just make sure you spend 90% of that time on Prep. I taped off the top of the truck in the area to put the lights and then placed the lights in my measured spots and visually make sure they looked right. Then measured over and over again. Once I had that all done I drilled LOL.
