Cab Lights, Yay or Nay


Recommended Posts

Im deciding if i should put them on. Tell me what you think. I just placed them on so they may be alittle off center.

There's been a lot of messages in the past about the roof marker lights. General consensus is: YES

 

Dig around in the search engine for previous messages. :crackup:

OK stupid question - what is the point of them? I have them on my sierra denali and have never quite worked out what they do or what they are there for. It certainly wasnt ever a consideration when i bought it. - Just wondering! :D

There clearance lights, they are so you can see how big the truck is. I like the look of them. But i also want them to scare the crap outa people who are commin at me, they make it look alot bigger. A little more respect on the road for such a big truck.

I wish I would have spent the $55 and got them when I ordered the truck. Now I want them and it will cost alot more than $55 and I have to put them on (that is no fun)

 

 

 

 

Im guessing that means drill the roof of the truck - eeeeeek!

 

I think the big light in the middle looks like the sign thats on top of a London Taxi - but hey thats just me! :D

I think they look good - maybe four of the small ones would look better IMO. Either way I think they look awesome at night!

 

I have been considering installing some on my rig - I'll do some searching and see what info I can find on the install.

Im sorry I already threw away the receipt for the parts, but tell your parts man to look on an 02 or 03 chevrolet 3500 and look for the roof marker lamps.  You will need the lamps and the wire harness.  The harness runs about $75 but is well worth the money for the ease of installation.  I had the body shop mount the units, and I wired them in. 

 

The harness runs from the driver's side roof lamp, across to the passenger side lamp.  It will continue down the passenger side cornerpost and will plug into the passenger side electrical center on the side of the dash. The connector is the lowermost on the connection block.  As a suggestion, route the harness completely before you push the tabs of the harness into the body.  As there is almost no extra length in the harness. 

 

And make sure that you seal not only the hole for the wires, but the screw holes too, as those units leak like a sive.  Also, you might want to remove the white tabs that the screws thread through after the holes are drilled, as this will allow you to tighten down the lamps more and provide a better seal.  Be careful not to overtighten them though.

I have a Solar Visor and love the look...it's a bit noisey but well worth it IMHO.

If I was going to do the lights it would be the 90's style 5 little cool shaped ones I always loved those. Definently add the marker lights. Not so fond of the huge middle with 2 little ones?

I want 3 for under my tailgate lip.....7 something a piece at Wally world.

Yay.

 

I have always had them on my trucks, have them on my new one and would buy them again. Although, I prefer the 5 smaller lights to the current 3 lamp setup.
