Cab Roof Running Lights

what do you guys think of the cab roof lights on a ranger? i like how they look on F-series trucks, but wonder how they'd look on a ranger.. what are you're guys' thoughts?? i kinda wanna get a set of oem ford running lights for my truck, but im not sure how they'd look..

here's a little pic of one of them, just so you know what i'm talking about..


EDIT: i guess the only thing that has me stuck would be the size of them.. on the bigger trucks, they look fine.. i wonder if our slightly narrower roofs might make these lights look to big and awkward. (with that said, i've been looking around, and there are smaller sets than the oem ford's, so.. i dunno)

Zach that's what i was mainly thinking would be the problem. with that said though, i kinda like them, and downsizing off the oem size a little bit might not look half bad.

and Will, thanks for the input, lol.

here's a set of Clears for those that dont like amber.. they're from Stylin Concepts. i'd want amber though, since i dont have clear corners anymore.

yeah i think they'd look good on a lifted truck or 4x4.. while mine isn't an all out off roader, it certainly isn't a street truck.. so i dunno, im split

Agreed. I used to see a Ranger all the time that had cab markers. It looked like it was trying too hard to be something it's not... BIG!

They look good on a full-size, but they just don't work on a compact.
