Which cab lights?

Ok, I'm gonna buy some cab lights on Monday. Putco doesn't make Ford cab lights so I'm gonna have to get Dodge lights. I like the first set because they look very similar to the Ford lights, but, they only have 2 diodes each. The second set has 3 diodes per light but for some reason, I think they look like warts. Anyway, which set would you pick?

I'd just go to Ford and buy the factory lights and harness. They aren't that expensive and you could change the lenses if you wanted. That's what I did.

I've got Putco mirror lights and they're super bright. The Recon lights don't impress me with their brightness. I have to have leds to match everything else

The pics. didn't come up the first time so I didn't see which lights were at the top. You can buy LED bulbs to replace the factory ones. I just hate to see someone ruin their Ford buy installing products made for a DUDGE!

Yes, I like lights As for the tails, I've got a friend that's supposed to be getting me a free set of 08 tail lights that I can cut up to see if they'll work
