I have seen it done on a few pick-ups you have to get the right lights, to get the right arc of the cab, and you have to measure the location properly.
A little silicone to seal the wire threw the cab duct tape the wires,to the roof so you do not get any wire rattle, use sealed connectors. Use nut zerts to get proper mounting strength.
The hardest part is dismantling the interior to get access, and drilling the holes properly.
