    Don't know if these were ever made or not... maybe overseas?? Would be cool to have amber turnsignals built into the tailight assemblies like what come on newer vehicles.

    Last ride along I did, pulled over a kid in a pick up that at first glance the tailights were just the white lenses, until he hit the brake lights. They were white also and blinded us. We were wondering about the stupidity factor since those lights probably cost a few hundred.

    round here they are not illegal if you have the red and amber bulbs in the correct places........however, kids put in purple, green, blue, and yes, even white bulbs. Schmucks.

    Those are the kind of people I want to be behind when they hit there breaks at night. Then I will just flip on the 660W worth of forward facing off-road lights on my rig and see stop so I don't run over them as they are blinded and loose control. Of course, the 110W of reverse lights also work good for the tailgaters at night! Haven't found a way to irritate someone with those 100W sidelights yet.

    Of course, all this is simply in jest. I would never use my lights except in an appropriate situation. Just because someone else is an a$$, doesn't mean I will be one, too. Afterall, that kind of reactin is what would give 4x4s as bad a name as those rice burners. IMO
