Ya i knew they were OEM which is why i kind of want them, but i also like the look of the other one a bit better. However i havent seen those cab lights on 80-91 F series so idk how it would look

I think I'm going to put the same ones that the newer trucks use onto my '88.

If you decide on the factory route, get a harness form a salvage yard, buy these:
Cab Marker Light Yellow, 25760Y, Truck-Lite - Ryder Fleet Products

If i were to ever put cab lights on one of our trucks, it would have to be the OEM looking ones or none at all.

I agree, for me it would be OEM style or none...yes I like LEDs but I don't care for the "sleak" design style of the LED units...our trucks are kind of boxy looking so I want the lights that look best with the body style...

I salvaged a set of those at the junkyard once and recently mocked them up. They look good, BUT, if you already have lights they will not cover the factory holes. Debating welding them up or sticking with the old style if I can get them in clear or smoked.

to be honest, my whole thoughts on the cab lights is if they came from the factory OEM great, but if the truck did not come with them its just better to leave them off, as you could possibly be looking at potental leaks in the future, but if any go on its always good to go OEM with the proper style/set that would be for your year truck.

Just a FYI. the Superduty(99-current) cab lights, have STUDS that come out the bottom. which means you need to access them from the BOTTOM. The problem is, the OBS trucks have a DOUBLE layer inner headliner on a reg cab/bronco. That makes it IMPOSSIBLE to access the studs to put nuts on unless you drill MORE holes in the inner roof. The supercab and crew cab have a 8" wide inner roof piece just under where the cab lights mount and make it a real BIOTCH to access the nuts.

Just something to think about
