Cab/Clearance Light Help

So i have seen a couple threads on here of people installing cab lights. I am actually looking into getting these cab lights because i think they look better than the HUGE bulky OBS Ford ones.

Recon Accessories: Part # 264146BK - SMOKED Cab Lights Dodge 03-11

http://www.amazon.com/Recon-264146BK-2003-2007-Heavy-Duty-5-Piece/dp/B000EEZI86/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1290450483&sr=8-2

1. I was wondering if anyone had a layout for where to place the lights.

2. How would i wire the lights if my truck didnt come with cab lights from the factory? (im not that knowlege able in electircal stuff)

Any help would be REALLY appreciated!

Thank you

I set mine on the roof where they looked good, measured and to my surprise, they were actually quite close. I went to the junkyard and got the factory harness, ran it up the pillar and into the roof like factory and plugged it into the factory connector behind the passenger side kick panel

If they dont you can get the correct connector and connect or just cut the connector off the factory end and connect them.

Cab Light Install

Here is a great link that I used to install my OEM Cab Lights. Motoman's Madness
He goes into great detail on lay-out, and on wiring. It was much easier buying the factory wiring harness, and the truck already has a cab light harness that you just plug into. I hope yours go as smooth as mine.
