Are cab lights hard to install. I purchased a oem ford kit and the harness, bulbs, lenses. Everyhting but a pattern does anyone know a stencil or pattern if not how i can figure out where to put the lights. How far from the windsheild ar factory cab lights? Also where does the harness plug into i heard under the glove box but where thanks

It

plugs in behind the pass kick panel. If you have the over head display it replaces that plug. Its not bad. I was nervous but it wasnt bad. The distance from the windshield rubber I think was 5" to the center of the hole. The middle light is centered of course. Then I think it was 8" to the next then 13" to the out side ones.

They're pretty easy to do. Hardest part is drilling that first hole in your body! LOL

Chrome Door Handles

Hey thanks for the information that worked great got my cab lights on last ntie look real sharp comapared to none. But, now i have another question, do any of you guys have the chrome door handle covers. If so do you guys have any problems with them coming off just using that 3m tape. i had that on my chrome on my mirrors and one blew off. Not to happy with it. Would you guys get the chrome handles themselves or what kind of covers did you get. If the tape ones are good what is a way to make it really stick. thanks

if you talk to the right person at a ford dealership they have a template

mine are getting installed by some guys at work this week all they have to do is trace the lines and holes with a grease pen and drill where needed
