Red rear sidemarker lights are required on post-1968 cars at manufacture per Federal law. Even if deleting them were legal in your own state, it's still not a good idea to delete them. There are...

Now, if THAT isn't a great way to attract the attention of the local constabulary, I don't know WHAT is.

You definitely don't want that HellFire "upgrade"-- it's not an upgrade (nor do you want ANYTHING that resembles this):

Considering the DOT doesn't "approve" of anything, that statement is meaningless.


There is no provision in FMVSS 108 for such condition of sale. If the 7" round lamps fit exactly where the...

If a product isn't going to be made correctly (and proved to be made correctly through required testing) then it's not worth buying. However, there are many companies that make...
