OBS cab clearance light question

Can someone please post a picture of the factory style lights for a 96 PSD. I am wanting to install a set and am not sure what the oem ones look like. Also would the newer style SuperDuty style look funny or out of place on the OBS. There is a set of brand new original ford ones on ebay and they look pretty good.

Also how hard are these to install, I hate the thought of drilling into the roof of the truck

ANy thoughts


Thx Greg G

They look like this...

Mine already had 'em. I'm not sure how difficult installation would be. I think the SD lenses would probably look a little weird on an OBS.

I'll post a pic later on of the ones I put on my truck. The hardest part of installing them is getting up the nerve to drill thru your roof. by the way, there is a harness connection for them on the passenger side of the cab behind the kick panel.

When you drill measure twice and drill once, also use all stainless steel hardware. Some where a saw a set of new chevy cab lights on a obs and it looked pretty good, i cant find the pic though.

i have the harness and lights i got from a junk yard for 10 bucks and when i took the old one off i unpluged it and i was so happy when i got home and saw i had a factory plug as well and i pluged them it and it works and my only part as well was waiting to drill...its real hard. but do you need to take apart anything in the inside of the truck to do the job right like the headliner?...

Just a quick suggestion. Once you drill the holes, go inside the cab with a large punch, and give a light tap on each hole. This creates a raised dimple on the exterior under the light, which prevents water from pooling around the hole where the wire goes through the cab roof.
