    Mine are slated to get put on, after I finish my cage, in the next few weeks. If this is still floating around in the first few pages, i'll post the pics. I'm just going to punch a hole through the roof and run them through. I'll have the wife's approval on the positioning before I make the holes, ofcourse :D !! (she has a better eye for making sure that things are spaced evenly)

    This was taken just over 2 years ago, but it pretty much still looks the same.

    I think so. I don't think he meant a light bar.

    Oopps! :crazy: :frown1: I missunderstood what he was saying. So he means the parking lights that go on the roof? Sorry bud, I'll head back to lurking.

    HIJACK: Don't go back to lurking just yet. I've never seen a billet grille look so good on a 89-91 chevy grille. Do you know what brand it is, or where it came from?
    HIJACK OFF:

    Sorry for the hijack, this is the only pic I have with running lights. I can't remember whose it is either.

    This is the only K5 I've ever seen in my life with clearance lights -- I think it looks kinda neat, but then again, I've always been a big fan of my clearance lights :d

    I've always wondered what function these are supposed to offer.

    They are normally called clearance lights which leads one to suppose they are to assist in determining bridge or any other overhead clearance in the dark, but that seems pretty ineffective, and having driven transport trucks, and fire trucks, I know that if I'm so close that those lights are being used, I'm finding another route! Not to mention that if that was the purpose the trailor should have them to (at the front).

    I guess they identify a rig from another vehicle when approaching head on at night, but really, what advantage is there to that?

    Anyone have the official on this one?

    Your trailers should have orange lights at the top corners too. Officially, I don't think they really do much, except warn on-coming traffic that you are a fairly large rig...

    Personally, I run em cause they look cool :D
