Cab clearance lights

Opinion: What is best? All 5 lights evenly spaced or outer 2 with 3 in center?

Question: What is standard mounting measurements for both? (I don't want to guess)

I just put some on my sons Bronco evenly spaced. They look good. But most trucks you see the side markers with the three center clearance.
I kinda like the evenly spaced. But more opinions the better.
Thanks

The stock lights were evenly spaced from the factory. The newer truck have them spaced out unevenly, but the older ones like we have were all spaced the same from the factory. If I recall correctly when I put them on my old truck I spaced them on 12" centers and 1 5/8" back from the drip rail. Here is a thread that has the how-to. Page 2 has the measurements.

If it isn't under warranty, I'll fix it myself.

Go with even spacing. 3-in-the-center makes me think chevy...

Agreed. Even spacing it us. So I have read that there is a factory connector in passenger kick panel for the lights. True?

Yup. Pull it out and it stares you in the face. Can't miss it.
