Anyone have 7 or more cab lights on their 99-03??

Thinking about doin 7 evenly spaced clearance lights but cant find any right ups or good pics. Once I drill the holes there's no goin back, if anyone has done this already post up some pics please, thanks.

When I had my dodge I only had 5 lights but same principle could be used, I stretched out a piece of wide masking tape acrossed the roof, find the center, marked it with a sharpie, then depending on how you wanted them spaced place each light on the tape and look at it from the front, if you like where they are then mark where they are with a pencil, then measure between them (centers) and make sure they are all the same distance, then use the sharpie to mark the holes, then drill. I got a little nervous when I drilled but they came out perfect. Don't forget however to take the headliner down first so you don't run the bit through it, then all you have left is to run the wire to the headlight switch, you'll have to get a schematic or someone will chime in as to which wire it is. One day I'll have them lights myself....one day

I'm going to add two more lights to mine one of these days. It can't be that hard.

My 2002 truck did not come with cab lights, but I installed 7 evenly spaced across the top.

Have a friend, on his old 02 cclb, he did this to, turned out really good with the 05 mirrors. One thing he wished he would have done was go with the factory base with the aftermarket led lenses. Other than that, couldnt go wrong with 7 lights on top. He actually tried to get 9 lights on there but just couldnt work out right
