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...

Neither do lives.

Fine. We'll talk about the safety. There is no safety in a product like this-- whether it's NOVA or PIAA or LightForce or any other company making such a product.
