Should be just the same as a truck. Measure, drill, connect wires to lights, connect wires to parking light circuit.

There is a write up in here somewhere. I remember seeing it awhile back. Shouldn't be to hard to search.

FYI, the lights are called "Cab Lights" not Running Lights... here's some write ups as to how to install them...

Yep, it's easy, if you don't mind being on your roof punching and drilling the holes.

I did it probably 5 years ago.

1 thing, and it may be covered in the write up above (I think I used it for a guide) the harness will not plug in to the trucks harness like it will on a truck. You'll just install it backwards, running it down the drivers side a pillar then tap in to the light circuit.

Oh, and I call mine Bubba lights. I don't think I have a picture here, but might on TDS. I'm on another PC but I'll try to get a pic up.

Haha, good luck man! I couldn't do it, drilling holes in my vehicle would just make me uncomfortable. I'd be all worried that my measurements might be a little off too! But don't listen to me, I worry too much over stuff like that... stuff that takes an absolute steady hand.

But definitely get the cab lights, they're pretty awesome. Have you looked at the sun visor too though? If you didn't want to drill holes in your roof and go thru all that hassle, the visor can be a nice alternative... and some of them come with the same cab lights on them I believe...

Here's a link to what I'm talking about... some of them come with "cab lights" on them too!

I did mine too but no pics. Sorry. They look great. Remember to measure and recheck multiple times before drilling.

technically, they are "clearance lights", but "cab lights" works too.
