Re: cab lights

sunroof and cab lights was a factory option
but before you order that brand read the link below , I couldn't have written about the quality any better! I would get the ford oem kit and harnes and use the smoked lenses from recon if that was the look your after ?

I have had the Recons for over a year and no problems what so ever. And I have sold numerous sets with no problems. Let me know if you need them I would be happy to help you out bud.

Re: cab lights

they still are not as well made as OEM like the link proves
the electrical connectors were never meant to be mated together so make sure you secure those well because it sucks to rip it apart and do it later .
they painted the black on the tinted units right over the shiny chrome base so it will last no time before peeling.

they do not provide mounting hardware only screws that are made to install into nylon inserts that you are to obtain ,, so I suggest using your own hardware

these are the indisputable facts and they do not give a rats ass about it.. beleive me I try to tell MFG's when I notice issues some are great
some make excuses some never respond tey fell in the middle
