    If anyones intrested in putting cabin roof lights or clearance lights and is holding back because of the drilling involved, I think iI have a solution that im going to test when they come in. Has anyone thought of a magnet on the bottom of the light like roof cb atennas have? Do you think I should try it?

    Sounds like an interesting alternative but the first thing that popped into my head is the issue of how to route the wiring since you aren't perforating the sheet metal. One alternative I saw somewhere was the integration of lights onto the bars of the factory roof rack which offered a low profile attachment point for the lights of your choice. Regardless of your decision I wish you success.

    I bought this one at a local flea market. its off brand. It connects the the 12v outlets inside the cab. the magnet has a rubber bottom so it doesnt scratch.

    I use it as a dust light so people following me can see me. but its not very sturdy because it slides when i hit some bumps.

    Thinking about this one, does the hole underneath the roof rack guide on the sides of the roof go far enough through to route a wire?

    I don't have the answer to that question but I'm thinking that this fellow might as his truck is the one that I remember seeing with the aftermarket lights added to the factory roof rack.
