3rd gen lights are bulbs just like all the others. You can get amber leds to go in the sockets though.

When you set them on the roof, does it fit like it should?

No idea on fit. Since asking this on various forums I know of other 2nd gens with 3rd gen cab lights so I'd assume they fit pretty well.

That's a right expensive toy to be experimenting with. I would just drop the coin & get 2nd gen led cab lights, that way you know they work. kilch123 has some recons on his & seems to be very pleased. Just my  :cents: :cents:

If you go with Recon, buy replacement screws (stainless steel) before you install them

the junk screws they send with them will rust and crack the lenses
