Here is a pic of the twin stick set-up that is in a '70 F250 4x4 with a Detroit 453 diesel... the guy who sold me the overdrive. My tentative plan is to replicate this set-up with both sticks being the same height and similar appearance... Eventual long term plan is to couple the overdrive & NP435 to a Cummins 4BT, have a nice diesel with the old school shifting set-up.

Here's some pictures of the passenger's side. You are right, they are 5" lights.

I think I would just go with the 5" lights it would look a lot better then plugging that antenna hole with a rubber plug

of course I wanted these lights when I was younger but now I prefer to have a hand held light it is way more versatile and I don't have drill holes in my truck

Your dads truck has the same antenna mount and its in the same location as mine is. I am confident the passenger spotlight (6") will hit the antenna looking at those pics... Curious if your dads will hit it if its put down on cowl? I still haven't decided yet in what I want to do with the lights. I may just do the drivers? May not do either of them... Or i may end up putting them both in anyway regardless of the antenna issue, I don't know.

I had 5" spot lights on my 85 F150 shortbed... I wanted the bigger lights because this truck is a lot bigger, a scale thing I guess.

Finally got my log in mess sorted out, took nearly two years to be able to log back in.
Not much new really other than changing out the bent grill shell for a straight one, rebuilt and painted the grille guard, installed some more side trim, swapped the original mirrors for camper mirrors and my headliner started sagging from the adhesive failing.... Gonna have to redo the glue I guess.

Welcome back! I'm glad you got your log in problem fixed. I sure missed seeing updates to this build as this is one of my favorite builds. I love the retained "stock" look of this truck. Very, very sharp.
