I had the stealer throw in some cab lights when I bought my 01 Dodge Cummins and have never installed them. They came with a nice template that goes all the way across the roof but I have never had the guts to drill holes in my cab yet(or the time) I think this will be a project when we get our new house built.

Nice job documenting it for the Ford guys. I may do the same this spring for the Dodge guys.

Just make dure you let the drill do the drilling. Bearly push down on that dril, and the holes will make a perfect cut. Keep the bit spinning at full speed, and just take your time and be careful. That's all it takes. Or you could just go to the dealership and they'll charge you $400.00 like i was quoted:)

It was SCARY as hell seeing what i did to the roof, but the lights cover up the holes:) It bends and warps the roof around the holes, but just hit it with a hammer from the inside and it straighten them all out perfectly.

Thats a good tip when I do mine. Its a shame that you have to be careful not to bend the roof when drilling a hole in a $35K truck nowadays! My old CJ you can practically stand anywhere on the metal and it will not bend.

thanks again--

Yeah, i had to put a camping sleeping pad on the hood, and then a packing blanket over that, and then this foam boogy-board on the hood so I wouldnt bend it:-\ I wonder how they figure this crap made out to be a $43,000.00 truck :-\

Should have ordered the truck with the cab lights 50.00 option. Most in my area come with them anyway.

Yeah, but there weren't very many here that had exactly what I needed. I had them install the telescoping mirros for sticker price (55) vs the 350+ aftermarket price.
