Default roof marker lights

i would like to put cab lights on my ram 2007 6.7ltr 3500 SRW. I was curious if anyone has done this, and if there are any recommendations. i want to know if there is a factory harness already in place, or if i will need to buy it as well. i was going to take it somewhere here in Austin and have them put them on professionally.

Its easier if you have the harness as I used stock ones on my 06 MC. I had to make a larger hole in the center for the stock plug as opposed to the Recon ones who only need small holes drilled in addition to the screw mounting holes. I bought a hole saw from Home Depot at 1/2 inch fo rthe job if I remember correctly.

Template will certainly help but take your time, look for measurements online and check lots of angles and views before drilling.

Uses plenty of clear RTV to seal up all holes and dab touchup paint on before doing the RTV.


Am certain you will like the look better afterwards. I did.

all dodges 2500 and up have the factory harness already in the headliner from what i was told by the dealer. On my last two i installed em and it was fairly easy but nerve racking at the same time. Something about drilling into the top of my truck scares me everytime. But like stated above use the 1/2" holesaw works much better and gives ya a little working room. Also i would recommend the gorecon lights as well. I tried the eurolights on one truck and wasnt very pleased with em and gorecon they are only $98 with shipping
