who has added cab lights? recon or ford

I really want to add the smoked cab lights to my truck, i think it would compliment my color scheme very well, however my concern is drilling holes in my roof and them leaking rusting etc, who has done it? how long ago? any leaks? rust?

Me and my buddy did it to one of his trucks. Factory kit. We are anal, it took use about 4-5 hrs from start to finish. They perfectly mimic factory setup. I've heard it taking people 1 hr, but we kinda cared.

No leaks or rust, just don't dent the roof. The lights have a seal that compresses underneath them. Careful with the drill bit too, heat and mistakes can dimple the roof.

It really helps to have another truck there for reference. The cab lights are not straight, they contour with the curve of the top of the window.

I wish we made a template.

It's not a truck unless there's cab lights.
