super duty cab lights on an obs

I'm thinking of getting some newer super duty clearance lights to go on 96 f350. Has anyone seen or done this already? If so show us some pictures, or just give me your opinion and tell me if I'm crazy or not!

I have seen it done before and it just dont look right. The origional style just seems to fit the OBS the best. But it's your truck and I think a guy should be able to do what ever he wants.

I personally think the old style will look better, I have teardrop style lights on mine that I got for 40 bucks and they work well and are bright

The only thing about the old style is they're big and don't look as good on the regular cabs as they do on the ext. and crew cabs. I'll prabably end up not putting any lights on at all but I would really like to see a picture of it though.

Found the teardrop style at Harbor Freight for 10 dollars. They
came with everything that you need, switch, inline fuse, all wires
and connectors. Took me all of an hour and a half to install
all the lights.

Tractor supply - 4.99 each. That's where I got mine. The hardest part of installing them was drilling that first hole. Just a word of advice, measure, measure again, take a break repeat measurement, and then get started.

Good luck,
