i installed the OEM lights on my old F-250, just make sure you have the proper spacing, measure 2 or 3 times the drill. i would also pre build the harness if you dont have one already, it will make the wiring alot easier.

1) Measure,
2) Measure again,
3) Repeat steps 1 & 2

The hardest part for me was making that first hole. Take your time, lay everything out and it should turn out fine.
Good luck,
Craig

Measure measure measure....

Also, you might want to make a template. A little tough with the curve of the roof, but it makes it easier to try different spacings and also to get the measurements and holes lined up exactly right.

i am assuming your lights come with a rubber bas plate? use a ring of gasket maker anyway to ensure they don't leak, you can never be too careful with the roof!
