SD cab lights on an OBS?

I have been looking into puttin some cab/clearance lights on my 96 F-250 and haven't found too many options for OBS lights. There seems to be a lot more selection in SD lights and im wonderin how it'd look and if it'd work to put SD cab lights on my OBS. Anybody got pics? Also, i know the hardest part is drillin the holes for the lights and all, but where would i find a wiring harness for the lights? thanks in advance

Look at LMC Truck. They have OEM-style lights (either in standard or LED) for the OBS. I got the standard (non-LED) lights for my truck from them and they look great.

Thanks and Gig 'Em!

Ah I didn't know you were looking for smoked or black. Have you checked out recon?

Also the wiring is real simple...you can either do what I did and ground the lights locally and run a hot wire down the drivers side pillar and into the back of the parking light fuse, or run by ford and get the harness/connector. There is a connector in the passenger kick panel specifically for the clearance lights.

Thanks and Gig 'Em!
