Are you looking for the measurements for how to space the cab lights on the roof? If so I installed the cab lights on mine and I can go get the measurements for you

Ok just went and got the measurements in front where it comes from the slope of the window to the roof I went two inches from that for each light

From the side all the way to the rain collector over the door I went six inches in

In between each light I did 9 inches and it spaced out perfectly

Now the OEM lights are a little wider so you might have to modify the spacing in between each light

Hope this helps
