You can mount lights on a shell. Someone on here did it IIRC. Just drilled holes through the shell for 4 driving lights. then ran the wires through the shell. Looked really good.

Not sure what year you have (filters at work so i cannot see any pics...) but 93+ are all the same. Check craigslist for them, can find them cheap on there.

Lghts on fiberglass toppers look good.
Lights on those aluminum toppers not so good.
