    With the strip lights you will not see the wires at all and the single 5 lights are individual lights and they only stick off the mounted surface 1/8'' and all the wires will be inside the mirror. Oh believe me exposed wire will ruin the look of a truck. I'm all about clean lines and everything being in loom if possible. I won't put the lights on if the wires are even the slightest bit exposed

    I think if done right, it could look nice. And I know, based on other things you'ev done, that you'll take the time and effort to do it right. I think it compliments the roof lights.

    Well that's why i think that the 5 on the mirror would kind of look better because i have 5 cab lights. And if i do the 5 ill have to drill holes in the mirror so oh yes i will probably end up making a template so they come out really clean. Same as i did with the dodge mirrors made a template so they would match the body line

    I'd prefer them in a line in the case of putting them on the mirror
