Looks like the DIY was as much work as the install itself.

Is there not a generic 2nd/3rd Gen template for this install without having to measure all that mess out?

so i have the same lights although my roof lights where already installed from the factory. do yours leak? mine leak like CRAZY when it rains! i was thinking of either getting new screw gaskets or going silicone crazy as soon as the weather gets a little nicer...

Thanks Man, Thats Actually My First Full Write Up.. Now I Do At Least One A Week. And That Was From DF. When They Deleted My Account I Moved All My Pics To A Different url. lol

Mine Don't Leak, The Recons Have The Foam Gasket & On Top Of It I Silicone Every Hole (15 In All) That Way I Never Had To Worry About It. It's Been Almost 1 and A Half - No Leaks & No Bad Leds. Pulling The Ford In Tomorrow And Installing The Ford Style Recon Cab Lights On It.

I'd Say Silicone The Holes, Are Them OEM Lights Or Recons?

Mine don't leak either

I did replace all the nylon nuts (mine were shot) - Just used the foam gaskets that came with, and had no problems to date

i have the recon lights and i think if i replace the nylon nuts i should be OK. i took a look up there a while ago and seen that the nylon was cracked so im assuming thats the problem. i dont want to silocone the foam gasket under the light because then it would make for a mess when i had to replace a LED.

the reason i bought the recon was only because the OEM set were leaking. now that i have replaced with the recon, the leak is 2x as bad :90:

Ouch!

 Well Its A Little Bit Of A Project, But If You Drop Your Liner You Can See Exactly Where Its Leaking - And Silicone From The Inside...?
