Provision for Roof Mounted Lamps

The snow plow prep package option on the 2015 states that it includes the provision for roof mounted lamps. The truck I'm looking at has the snow plow prep package but doesn't have the lamps. I'm guessing that if I purchased them they'd come with the appropriate template for placement and the wiring would already be in place? Anyone do the install yet? Also, are they just for aesthetics or do they really provide additional light.

Thats not talking about clearance/cab lights its talking about like a rotating orange beacon or firefighter light. Not sure if thats what u meant but thats how I took it. From other threads no the wiring for cab lights isnt there

Im pretty certain that its for the cab lights because whenever i look at trucks online that have the roof marker lamps option, it has the cab lights. It is only a $55 option.

I promise that it is 2 different things. The reason that its included with the plow prep package is for a service light. The cab marker lights are just a $55 option. The cab lights and the roof marker light beacon are 2 differentt things. The roof light provision will have a switch on the inside to turn the service light on. The cab lights turn on automatically with your parking lights. You can have both which is what you are seeing when one has the provision and has cab lights.

Like saxman says, the plow prep has a dash mounted switch for a roof mounted light required in most states when plowing. The wire is looped behind the third brake light.
The 5 cab marker lamps are an entirely different issue.

As everyone has said, it is for the revolving or strobe light that is required by law in many states for those who plow snow. It has nothing to do with the cab lights.

There is 1 guy that I have seen on here that has done it on a 15. Its just kind of scary because you will be drilling holes in the roof of your new truck. Also he had a hard time finding the wiring harness. You headliner will have to come out wiring harness installed and holes drilled. One big draw back is that they wont be under warranty for the lights or leaking. I personally wouldnt have an HD truck without them though. Unless they are just giving you a deal you cant turn down I would try ordering or see if they can dealer trade.

Or ask them to order the lights and install them as part of the deal. Maybe you'll get a salesman to agree without knowing what's involved in adding them.

Personally, I'd rather order the truck new and get it exactly as I wanted it.
