I just bought a set of cab lights and the Recon smoked lenses and was wondering if anyone knows where I can get a template to align them right on my roof? Also it came with the factory harness to connect te lights together, is there some kind of plug that this harness will connect to on my truck?

Howdy bigcountry250,I measured the placement of the OEM Clearance Roof Lamps on another SuperDuty.

I took a manilla folder and cut out 5 templates from the bases of the lamps then placed them out according to the measurements I took from the SD securing them with some paint masking tape.

Each template was marked for the bolts and 3/4" hole to be drilled & knocked out.

There is a CRL pigtail in the passengers side front kick panel which you can plug into only if you have the OEM harness with matching plug.

On the web there's a PowerStroke owner that goes by "Emotoman" that did a nice write up on the CRL install if I can find it.

Buy two more lights and lenses, go with seven up on top. Venutre out there and be a little different. Plus, I think it looks sweet...

I just did mine a while back, If i remeber right just for one more piece to the puzzle. if you install the harness first. you will notice each lead will be close to were you need to go. I didnt use a templete and just went off were the leads were. And drilled from the inside lining up on the lines on the roof. No body has ever said any thing about them being off. and quite a few people have looked after telling them this. the worst part about the factory lights is the 1 inch hole you need to drill for the connector. kinda nerve racking. espeacily for young kid with a pricy new pickup.

I dug up a few photos from the CRL install on the Excursion in '02. Rough placement of the temps,drilled/knocked out,sealed and mounted.

I used clear GE Silicone II sealant to seal the bases to the paint surface although the foam pads on the bases seemed okay I wanted to make sure no water would enter down the road ;)
