aclasshog Thanks articdriver! Here are a few more pics along the way and I also took advantage of having the head liner down and added some sound deadening material to the top of the cab.

ArcticDriver I have the same truck and color and I always wondered about this topic.

Your truck turned out great.

Job well done.

aclasshog Finally got the job done and I'm happy with the results. You could have bought me for a nickel when I put the drill bit on the first hole. Gave the truck a good wash job and thankful there are no leaks, yet....

Ponce, did you drill your holes 5.5" from the windshield seal? Looks like that will clear the support without any problem but I wasnt sure if the 5.5 was from the tip of the cab light or the center for drilling. Thanks for the link, I'm reading a bunch of them tonight.

Ponce3 Middle one should be in the center. next 2 out should be 8" from center. Outer 2 should be 13" further. Make sure your front holes will clear the support beam underneath. When you drop the headliner you'll see it. Heres a good write up. F250 Factory Clearance Light install

Can anyone bail me out before I ruin a perfectly good truck? I think I am going to sleep on it tonight before drilling the holes.

Ponce3 Went pretty good. drilling that first hole is the hardest part. lol Measure three times. use painters tape on top to protect and make your marks. Have a shop vac nearby to get rid of those shavings on the roof asap. Do a search. Alot of writeups and videos out there. I just tapped into the headlight switch wiring so they come on with the lights. The kit grounds through one of the screws for each light so theres only 1 wire to run. Use silicone in the holes for added insurance from water infiltration. Pretty easy really.
