    I've spoke with officers in the past and when people have the license plate LED lights they become more targets than anything.

    What would you suggest? Keep in mind I won't have any license plate lighting AT ALL for Snoball if I don't do something immediately. Guess I could tape a flashlight above the plate if a decision isn't made soon.

    just go with a white light on the plate whether it's led or not.

    I think LED is ok just don't use colored LED use white. so to keep the cop's at bay not giving them a excuse to pull you over for colored lights on your license plate use white.

    I think that is what double AA was getting at to not use colored LED's but white is ok

    Use white LED and you should be good to go.

    In a PM they (Double AA) did reinforce my original thoughts, that they were suggesting incandescent type bulbs. However, I'm not sure on an easy, quick way to go about that.

    How about a led side emitting strip with warm white leds. That should give it the color of an incandescent.....

    To be honest with u I dont see much of an issue with led bulbs tho. I have been running them in my raptor since day 2 and I ran them in my last truck for 6 years and I have been rarely pulled over. When I did get yanked I was doing something obviously wrong/stupid and was pulled over for it and my plate lights were never mentioned. I guess what I'm saying is I really wouldn't stress over the led vs incandescent choice too much
