Good cab lights

I recently had a bird hit the cab light above the driver and broke it so im in the market for some new ones.

Ive used the led kit from lmc truck before and they worked fine just didnt seal to the cab as well as id liked and to be honest the stock obs ones never do by the mountinf design.

Id like to have some that just direct replace but cant find any that would seal to the cab better.

Could superduty lights but they mount front and rear and i dont want 10 exposed holes in my cab, do the SD lights cover those holes?

Does a super duty cab light cover the two mounting holes from the stock obs cab lights?

I've always done well with LMC truck or ebay ones.

I had the LMC led lights on my 95 and they looked good but its just the way the screw on the sides i dont like. Same with the factory lights, i think it would seal better with a front and rear screw and ford obviously thought the same.

I double up on my light seal anyway adding a thin extra piece of foam rubber tape to help.

I guess its LMC again for me, cant believe recon has been around all these years and with all their lighting options havnt made a single obs specific light yet.

Course if read good and bad about their light quality as far as longevity.

EDIT: just ordered new cab lights off ebay so we will see how the quality is i guess, went ahead and got an led third brake in smoke also to replace the crusty old unit.

Ryder Fleet Products has the OEM replacements for less than $5 apiece.

Automatic or manual transmission? That LED third brake light might mess with your cruise control, and if applicable, the torque converter lock-up.

Manual trans, i had one on an auto vefore and it didnt hurt anything while i had it.

If it does mess with my cruise would i need to wire in a load resistor?

Just got my cruise working after two years and kinda like it haha. Ended up being after everything i pulled the steering wheel and brass brushed with elec cleaner the rings on the back of the wheel, did the same for the posts on the stalk and it works haha.
