You also want to make sure you take your time so you dont drill into the roof support bar, you gotta mount just behind it. I think its like 3-1/2 or 4" from the weatherstipping off front window right? Ill double check, but you also want to make sure and do some type of silicone or gasket material so they dont leak into your headliner and interior Im about to do this as well and been reading alot about it. Check youtube out theirs a few people that have done install videos!!...

i want them SO SO bad. I would like 7 of them across the top but i called the ford place and they said that they wont touch it.

The dodge dealership will do them for $300 installed but wont touch a ford...

I guess it will be a progect ill have to tackle.
