    Hey all, Im lookin for the light bulb socket for the factory style clearance lights. Anyone have a clue where to find them? LMC and chevy duty dont have em. Does anyone have one they can look at and see if they have a part number on them, that I could search for? Im wanting to add em to my truck, and have the wiring harness, lenses, mounting pads, just no sockets. Thanks for any help. Chris.

    I have a set of those...

    My brother gave me a set of cab marker lights that look the same as those!-they came off an Isuzu box truck they had where he worked they were scrapping!--I have all the harness and lenses,etc--but I havent been brave enough to try to install them--

    I noticed the factory installed ones actually use a different roof "skin",with a moulded shape pressed into the roof that matches the outline of the lights..not that its a big deal,I'm just hesitant to drill more holes in the roof on my 82 K20--its already rusty behind the visors,and it was some rot and lots of bondo on the roof where the lights need to mount,thanks to a tree branch hitting the cab before I got it..I'm doubtful the screws will tighten good in an inch of bondo!--nor will it "ground" good either! :blush:dont want any leaks either----might just sell them instead--my 79 C10 has NO rot or roof damage,hate to drill any holes in that truck even more!..but I do like the looks of a truck with cab marker lights.. :cool1:

    Yeh I got no rot, kinda have this eek feeling about drillin holes, but they just look so dang cool, gotta have em lol. My roof does have 2 other holes in it from where it used to be a volunteer fire truck and had a roof light bar, Ill get them welded up when I go to the bodyshop for paint, hopefully here in the next 3-5 weeks, depending on how many hrs I get at work. :grin:
