Please PLEASE post pics... So I can see what it looks like on a Silver Frost truck..

Also remember, the body lines are going to be different, so it may take some work to get those to work with your roof line.. If that makes sense..

I'll post up pics, don't worry... I'm going to tape up my roof and just place them and measure a million times to make sure it's all even and looks good.... I'll let you know. I like the ford ones a lot, but they seem too tall on the ranger in my opinion.... Also, it does state that the Ford/Dodge lights are interchangeable between the 2 manufacturers so I'm thinking they will look a little better

on a side note, I think it would be kind of cool if someone made a fender vent/badge like the superduties but where it says F150/F250, it would say ranger...

easy theres the two wires for the lights. the black colored one as your ground wire. the brown wire you just get behind your light switch knob and splice it into that brown wire attached to the light knob. if you do that your cab lights come on when you have your parking light on or your regular lights on. they also will blink when you lock your car.

did you have a template for the install? I ended up ordering mine today, lol. How far back from the windshield rubber is the front of the lights? I just like the spacing you used for this...

I probably won't have pics or install done for another week or so, but I'll post them up when done



PS. I'm actually in the process of making a fender vent/badge like the superduties have so we'll see how it comes out
