    Thanks. The Sierra is getting pounded this weekend. 4 feet of new snow and expecting a couple more. I-80 over the summit was closed for a while.

    Just finished mounting my 30" light bar.. Even with no instructions in the box. It was simple for this idiot to mount it.

    Will get pictures in the daylight.. Plus there is a interference problem with the light bar and jimmy jammer hood latch protector. I just rotated the light bar up so I could shut the hood for the night..

    I am going to wire it up and resolve clearance issues in the morning..

    Are these behind-grille light bars "street legal"? I want to use them as aux/fog/high beam lights while driving on country roads in the middle of nowhere at night... Thanks!

    But having the LED bar *ON* my truck is legal, yes? Just can't use it while on-road? Or can't GET CAUGHT USING IT on-road? How would someone know if I flip it off as soon as I see other traffic coming around me?

    BTW, I see nothing which states I can't use this, in my local TX laws..

    Just says I cannot shine this light down the road. So I have to aim it down or keep it off while on-road I suppose.. ??

    Use at your own risk on the road. Your not going to get by the cops buy saying, "so and so on FRF said I could use them on the road".

    Also, light bars are so new, many state laws have not addressed them yet. They won't have to address them if people don't abuse the privilege by using them on typical road ways.

    I get it, but I just want to confirm it's OK for them to be ON my truck just not ON/Lit, unless I'm off-road or something.. Yes?

    I personally havent had any problems with mine. In fact, several cops have commented how cool my lights are.
