These go the roof right?
Do you need to drill holes or are they held by magnet/3M?
Where would you put the wiring?

Very interested in this also.
If you don't mind me asking, where and how much did you get them for?

Im assuming the 55W 5000k HIDS are bright enough?
I recall you mentioning that they were not bright...?

Its all good man. I got all the lights from gorecon.com. the cab lights were 99.99 plus shipping, use promo code "fb15" and it gives you 15% off, which knocks off the shipping pretty much. It comes with very detailed install instructions specifically for 4th Gen trucks, but I want one of the templetes which are very hard to get, unless you buy the mopar kit. Yea you have to drill 15 holes total in the roof. 10 for mounting, and 5 for the wires to go through. You have to remove the headliner and run all the wires down to the dash. You can put them on a seperate switch or tie it into the parking light wires. I'm gonna put them on a seperate switch.

I live where there is snow in winter.
Will drilling the holes cause rusting?

The lights are bright, if you run the fogs too. IMO, the light output of the OEM headlights are terrible. Yea when I first put them on I though they were bad, but I had the wheels off the truck and couldn't drive it. I have driven it a couple times and I'm content with them now. I bought (4) 27w LED off road lights and will be mounting them to the grille guard. Whenever I get around to putting the brush guard on. I think you will be happy with the HIDs, sorry for the misinformation earlier.

If you do it right, no. Even if you do a half ass job, which I dont think you would, the gaskets on these lights are pretty heavy duty so they shouldnt leak at all. When I put mine on, I'm gonna bead silicone around the whole light, on the inside of course, just to make me feel better.
