cab roof lights are best for full size trucks. for a ranger, it would look better without the lights. or, get a sunvisor and they have small integrated lights built into the visor.

this is just my opinion.

You gotta make your own measurements man.....some folks like the 5 lights spaced equally apart.....while some like the 3 in the middle and two on the outside.

There's a couple threads regarding this exact subject....use the search function.

Cab Clearence lights are a "love it/hate it" sorta thing. Me personally...I love it.

I like the lights on a 150 or bigger I haven't really thought about them on a ranger. It would depend on the look I guess. as far as mounting them I would put them with the 3 in the middle close to gether and then ones on ends of the cab. it looks better to me. On my F-150 I had mine mounted that way with 5" separation. (that was front tip to front tip) on the middle 3 and the ends just at the beginning of the roll down to the drip rail.

it's all in your personal taste. How ever you want it you go for it!

Hope that helps.

here ya go man.












i only used four lights so i used the center as a reference and adjusted accordingly.







I wired the lights into the headlight switch wire so that when i pop the headlights on the cab lights come on. I also wired in a 10a fuse. Hope it helps.

It only cost me about eighty bucks and change to do, I used led bulbs so there was about twenty bucks there and then wiring is pennies, bout 25 feet. The smoke lens was about 30 bucks and then the housings themselves were just under ten bucks mind you that is at cost cuz I worked at the stealership. And then small stuff like shrink wrap and connectors.
