Or a change to the entire fog lamp system and have a pair on low beam and a pair on high beam.

Well I know the general laws says "That normal highway lighting is suppose to be 55W to 60W"

But...


Funny part is every logging truck out here has a set and the local NAPA store sells them cheap...

I know its' an old thread but I just joined...
anyway, what are they doing about LED lights? How are they counting them? Can't be each diode... Plus I know many snow plow guys that have the latest harnesses that, when the plow is down, their normal headlights also come on. (plus any extras they have... most guys are up to 6 lights)
Just wondering how _your_ state does it. DE doesn't say a word.

I am under the impression that LEDs are considered one light per assembly, but I wouldn't think they have the light output to be much good, but I could be wrong.

Yea, they do......
Quote:
Limitation in Number of Lights - Not more than four lights of 300 candlepower or more on the front of a vehicle shall be lighted at one time. Headlights must be installed no higher than 54 inches nor less than 24 inches from the center of the lamp to the ground.
Copied from http://www.dmv.de.gov/services/drive...quipment.shtml
Here in Minnesota the law says four lights illuminated at any one time too.....

As a newbe here I shouldn't do this but it being a friday night...

you are kidding, right?
I don't know how your state is, but ours is lax on some of these laws. It may be a law, but no one says anything about some things... I didn't say it wasn't law, just that they don't say anything. (unless you are being pulled over for something else and you are being an *&^^% to the cop. Then, anything goes. You asked for it.) ***One thing they are really sticklers here is window tint on the front side windows: drivers door and front passenger door.
Then again, about 12 years ago a place I worked, during lunch we would read stupid laws that were still on the books. Here in DE, before entering an intersection even if light is green, we must stop, sound our horn three times and look for horses both directions, then proceed. The only horses you _might_ see around here has a cop sitting on it.
Did you read the link you sent? (and yea, I've seen it, been read it in court, etc.)
Headlights must be on when wipers are on... yes, good idea but no one does it. Not even the cops.
"At least two white multiple beam lights are required..." interpretation is everything.
"Taillights - At least two, original design" No after market? No replacement? again, interpretation. What if I designed them. Are they not original? (yep, got a new cop giving me a hard time cause I did a temp taillight on a Zuk Sammy with a trailer light, he lost)
"Parking Lights - At least one white or amber light visible within a distance of 500 feet to the front..." ding ding ding... we have a winer. You can have white park lights. yep, in front. (Lenses fade to white on a '63 Impala...)
I could go on... like hot having a park/emergency brake for the last 21 years. And yep, DMV doesn't check or ask when you drive though for inspection. Hell, I kept failing the brake test, no one else was there so all the other lane guys came over and kept cheering me on as I kept backing up and redoing the brake test. (air in the lines, very little rear brakes) After almost 15 minutes I finally passed.
No stickers on front windshield? How about those stickers on the top, or my NRA sticker in the bottom corner. Plenty of cops and DMV saw it. It's where everyone sticks the "Easy Pass" for the tolls, on the windshield.
Oh, and lights while plowing snow, just about anything goes. You are considered an emergency vehicle and are exempt. After all, during a State of Emergency, no one can be on the roads except you. I've got a set of KC's mounted on the windshield (where the hinge would be on a jeep) Got fog or driving lights angled to each side. I turn on the side I'm putting the snow... Another set of KC's (knock offs) for backup lights.
When I'm plowing streets pushing to side, I'm running 7. I've got a Snoway with down pressure. I wired my OEM headlights and side lights to come on when the down pressure is on. (I did this before the manufacture thought of it.) Don't really need all of them but they are there.
"Colored Lights" Lots of kids run blue lights on their wipers and stuff. (I don't get that)
Muffler or CAT or under hood air pumps (any emission equipment)? Doesn't matter on a truck over a specific weight. They sniff test in DE... (stick censor up your tail pipe... oh wait... over a specific age? Over a specific weight? Exempt.
License Plate frames? We have a plastic cover over one of ours... Just about everyone has a stupid frame around it. (I've got a tag so beat up from backing up into my trailer you can hardly read it. They laughed at it during a booze stop. (here they stop traffic on different roads on a fri or sat night looking for DUI's.) I told them I use it to protect the gas tank.

Anyway how this started, I have been thinking about running white strip LEDs along the bottom rubber mainly as daytime running lights. Just one strip... side to side.

Sorry for being so long. As i said, it's not that it's not on the books, it's just that no one says anything.

thanks,
george
