Check your local and state laws. your allowd to have them but most state's require you cap them unless 1 your off road or 2 state of emergencey (snow storm's natural disaster's etc) my state its a $200 fine per light thats uncapped. They are nice though.

its 200 dollars per light if you have them turned on if your just driving down the road. If they are uncapped but not turned on then you should be fine.

I got pulled over a few weeks ago in PA for having lights without covers. $186 fine. But im a college student from MD and the cops here always pull over us college guys for no reason.

I think I would have one of those lightbars torn off by branches and vines on the overgrown forest trails here in southeast MO and southern IL. Do they rotate downwards maybe?

Most of them do , according to 4wd.com (rotabar)

I see it on 4wd and it says NO DRILLing but I see it mounted where there are no holes......

EDIT
here is the link
http://www.4wd.com/productdetails.aspx?partID=56219
It seems if you mounted it on the lower part of the windshield frame it would be right smack in the middle of your vision. And there are no holes that I see near the top of the windshield frame.......

I want to get a Carr Rotabar but I really want to put 5 lights on it. Are there holes for that and will they fit? Most likely KC lights.

Ive never been fond of the light bars on TJs, but if I were to ever do a light bar on my TJ it would be built similar to this (obviously this is a JK). I like the low profile that the LED light bars have.

Here in WV you are only allowed 4 lights on the front of the vehicle.
Any others must have covers on them.

I love the look of those light bars, but I'd have them tore off in 30 minutes flat.

PA inspection law is maximum of two aux driving and/or fog lamps. Off road lamps need to be covered, such as the roof mounts.
You can sneak around it by not hooking up the lamps as then they are considered ornamental. But worthless.

My home made light bar. used to have 4 KC 130w driving and long range and a pair of 55w floods. Now its empty because someone stole them all. HIDs eventually will be going up there.
