Hardest thing to do was drill 15 holes in the roof of a truck with less than 6000 miles on the odometer. Measure 20 times. Drill once

They turned pretty good though. I'm glad there were many videos on YouTube with guys installing lights on top.
All I can say is... You can't use too much silicone.
(Oh, and don't skimp, buy the really good stuff too)

the truck looks really good, just dont "overmod it" too many mods and they become distracting.
