its pretty straight fowoard. run a hot wire from your fuse box through the fire wall through a toggle switch up ur A pillar into the headliner. go on the roof and punch holes only big enough to get the wires through in the locations ur lights will be, pull ur wires through and be sure and silicone them when u mount them so water wont get in. then ground where ever you see fit. any specific question sjust ask. i dont have em but ive done it before.

mmm idk exactly. look on the underside of the cover their should be a diagram, if you dont wanna run from there try one of the 2 fuse boxes inside the cab. or if you dont wanna fool with that go straight from the battery to an inline fuse then to ur toggle, i just dont like doing this because you run the risk of accidentally leaving the lights on. with an ignition fuse it cuts power when the trucks off.

I am sure your truck is the same as mine. There is a fuse panel on the passenger side where there is already a parking light circuit. There are 3 prongs, 1 is the positive, 1 is the negative and I do not know what the 3rd one is. That is how I ran my wiring. I will go out and take a picture in a little bit for you.

You will see the 3 bare prongs below that white plug. They run on an angle with the lowest one starting towards the rear of the truck. The bottom lowest one is the negative and the next one to the right will be the positive and the next one to the right I do not know what it is for. I put a fuse on the + wire and small female spade terminals will plug right into those prongs. I would get a test light to confirm. It will all make sense when you look at it on your truck.
