Default Wiring cab lights on a 1500

Has anyone attempted to wire cab light on top of a 2nd gen 1500? I really like the look, but I don't know if it's worth it or not.

The wiring is the easy part, measuring and drilling properly is what takes time. I have installed them in newer trucks and they come with a template and complete instructions. Me personally i would not want to drill holes in my roof, but they do look good after install. If you do decide to get them, pick up an automatic center punch and some touch up paint.

Okay it sounds easy enough. Messing up my paint isn't a huge concern because it's already in need of a paint job

I just installed mine and I didn't mess my paint up
Only the mopar lights cone with the templete, mine are recon so no templete
Its actually very to install. Once you drill the first hole, the rest are nothing
After I got them where they needed to be, it took about 30 minutes and 2 beers to convince myself to drill tthe first hole LOL
Do it, you'll be glad you did
