    Hi gang! Is it possible to source cab light lenses locally? I was giving Diego his yearly bath after installing the Turbo System and broke one of the old brittle lenses...

    You can get them from amazon rather quickly

    Thanks! Would you happen to have a link for a particular amazon vendor?

    Ever considered smoked lenses? I seem to recall the set not being crazy expensive. I kinda want to do smoked with amber LEDs on mine.

    That's all cool and everything, but what I need is one lense for the old mule. We're taking a three hours each way trip on Saturday and I'd like to have a lens on the light. There's no amazon option to get a set to me before Monday. Are the lights something that NAPA might have? I'd be happy to buy a whole assembly just for the lens.

    I couldn't say but I wouldn't think anyone would stock them, not really a high demand item. In a pinch I'd check the dealer or junkyard.

    You could probably pick up a whole set, but they won't be stock, and might have to redrill the holes.

    They are a pretty common middle class truck roof light. I ordered mine from a truck place local when I replaced them on my dually.

    The OEM Ford cab lights I have messed with did not have separate lenses, the lense is glued to the housing. To change the bulb you have to take the whole assembly off the roof and twist out the socket to get to the bulb. If your truck is like this, be prepared to just buy the whole housing.

    Those won’t go back in the same holes. They look like 1 screw through the top. The stock are 2 on the sides. No the lens does not come off. You replace it as a unit. Bulb screws into the bottom.

    Ah ha! Thanks, that makes sene. Napa has some listed as a direct replacement and they don't sell the lenses separately.
