Introduction

If your Ford F250 (or any other truck) does not come with LED roof cab lights, you can get some aftermarket LED cab lights to give it that gritty, off-road look.

Lower the headliner. You'll need to remove both visors and the overhead storage console.

Get some painters tape and tape up the entire front area of the roof where you will be installing the LED cab lights. Mark the locations where you will be attaching each LED light and the holes that you will be drilling. (You can use a dry erase marker.)

  • Draw a line perpendicular to the sides of the truck and measure the distance from the windshield molding by the driver's side door. You will basically need to draw a horizontal straight line from both sides of the truck and then find the center of the truck. Use the midpoint as a guideline and measure where you will be placing the rest.

You should have five lines to mark each of the LED roof lights. Measure 6.5 inches for each of the lines to mark the center hole. When you mark all the center holes, lay all of the LED cab lights in place to see if you like the look.

Get some spare cardboard laying around and trace out a template of the LED roof light. Mark the locations where you will drill the holes and align the template onto the lines you drew so you know where all the holes will be drilled later on.

Connect the wires. The plugs are polar sensitive, so if it doesn't light up, you will need to flip it 180 degrees.  You'll need to wire them up in parallel and use some electrical tape so they maintain a parallel wiring. Tape the wire harness onto the reinforcement beam.
