Get the cab light kit from Recon. It'll set you back about $70. I did the install myself on my truck and took me about 2hrs. The key is to measure and measure again. In terms of difficulty, I'd give a 2 out of 10. Just take your time and measure.
First off, you have to take off you grab handles and the pillers. Then if you have an overhead console remove that. Once all that is off, just pull the front of the headliner down.
I started by finding the center of the cab and doing all the measurements that the instruction called for then I marked the it with a sharpie, then from their I moved out to the sides by following the instructions and everytime I finished finding the light placement, I would mark the holes and the back of the light so I would have an exact place.
After I marked my cab, I took a 3/8s drill bit and cut the main hole for where all the wiring would be going. As for the screws that hold it down, I took a bit that was slightly smaller than the screws were to insure I didn't put to big a hole in my cab that the screws wouldn't fit into.
Once I got all my lights mounted I took a dab of clear silicon and went around the bottom of the lights to make sure they wouldn't leak any water, that is optional but I did it for peace of mind
