Yo, i want to put some marker lamps on the top of my truck.

i want them to be kawasaki green, therefore i am looking for kawi green lamps or clear ones to paint. anyone know where i can find a kit of something? maybe just the lamp assemblies is fine, i can do the rest.

i think the green lights on the top will look good. be sure to post some pics. I don't know if you can order the green lenses, but i know you can get green bulbs. The covers work, but they don't look as good, and the heat from the bulb makes them brittle. the bulbs i got had stained glass, so they couldn't fade. I believe i got them from autozone. also, you can get led lights in whatever color you want that fit the 194 bulb. thats what I run in my gauges, green led lights.

Any light facing forward must be white or amber. Just so you know.

what type of truck store? all i have is advanced auto, autozone, napa, and a pep boys down the road.

recon wants $69 plus shipping for the clear kit, i dont want to spend that much. especially since i am going to buy 3 kits, to put along the bed rails, to give me the big rig sense.

i plan on doing it within august, i will definitely post some pics.

any tips on mounting them? i think i am going to silicone around the holes i drill.

how hard is it to get the headliner down, while not killing it?

i went to a big truck shop to get them, and since you have a crew cab you can pull the head liner and slide it as far back as you can so you can drill the holes, then once you get them mounter i used a little silicon around the lights.

it sure does, but i am not a cop, my dad is, so i have some convenient FOP tags. they work wonders. plus, my bro in law is in charge of patrol for the sheriff department in my county. :-D

=========================================================

So i tried to remove the roof mounted center console that displays temp, mpg, and miles to go, but i couldnt get it. there are two tabs on the inside of it, i pushed them at the same time, but no luck.

please help.
