cab roof lights = cool? which ones?

Some cab roof lights.


Cleat cab lights 1

or


Clear cab lights 2

or


Clear cab lights 3

I'm leaning toward the first ones since my truck is black and they'd blend better, the second ones are nice too with the chrome, the only reason I'd get the last ones are because they are half the price of the others

I say the clear/black if you get 'em, but they're not really my cup of tea.

Truck on the right. Thats the best picture I got that you can see the lights on. They didn't look half bad to me, though the blend in with the white pretty well.


Straight shot. Can't really see them.

What about something like this (the top right pic) http://www.realtruck.com/productline...ight_kits.html

I wouldn't do it. But black if I was going to.

I reallyl ike the look. Espicially since seeing that white one in the posts above. I'd say either do that...or get a Lund Lunar Visor....that's the lighted one with 5 amber clearence lights. That's whati'm going to do.

Personally I like them, I also like the front roof spoiler and the racer back ( I think thats it) I don't care if my truck isn't full sized. I think it looks a lot meaner and more of an duty offroad truck.

That would be the option I would select if it were in your poll.

With ice and our weather.. You would probably wind up with a leaking headliner before long.

Ya know.. I dont have any pics of this.. and it sounds sort of off topic, but I had a buddy who modified a 12 volt line down to his underbody and installed cab lights around the upper part of his chassis under there.. so when he flipped his toggle switch and clicked them on, he was abl eto work under his vehicle without needing to run a flashlight into the dark areas. Sounds iffy, but it actuayl was darn neat, helped an awful lot when we had to work onit.


But for yoru instance.. i personally dont like the added flare of those lights on a small pickup.. you need a big beefy truck to eb able to pull that one off sadly :-(

None FTW! Unless you do a diesel swap it won't be as cool.

First, if your truck is black, I say go with the black ones.

Second, if YOU like them, by all means get them. What I think really isn't important because it's your truck. Trick it out to your taste.
