It appears here in PA you can't have external light bars on your vehicle on a road unless they are covered up. Not that I would use them on the road but covering them up takes away from the bad ass looks.

I was thinking about getting a 50" bar for the top of my windshield. Has anyone in PA or anywhere else for that matter run into the po po bothering them about their lights?

Thanks

As Jeep found out with the Liberty which could be ordered with 4 roof mounted lights which had to be covered on public roads... or even public lands off road... and came with covers.

I doubt the highway mounties pay attention but eventually some resourceful backwoods cop says "Hey!! We can real a fortune fining and impounding all those Jeeps... pickups etc with roof mounted lights". Actually I think most states have a law stating no lights can be higher than they headlights... and the have a maximum height for that too.

So until that resourceful backwoods sheriff says "Hey !!". yer good to go.

Was pulled over in Robbindale Mn about 4 years ago for 2 round aux lights that were on my windshield, off but "not" covered, warning ticket only/didn't argue with the guy, think he was looking for a dui and I don't drink and drive and since sold the Jeep and no aux lights on my curr jk/I was shocked looking online as sure enough there was a statute that said if more than 4 then the aux should be covered so I dug up my Mopar covers, think the statute was changed last year tho and wouldn't stop me from adding a bar - no covers ok, just have to be off(duh)/check where you live, it may be ok

In the state book it pretty much says no external lighting what so ever unless it's a work truck or emergency emergency vehicle. It all depends where you go in PA. My buddy in Pittsburgh never had problems but another guy I wheeled with just got ticketed for his tires and light bar in a different county.

Auxiliary lights on the front, higher than the headlamps need to be covered. I know of a few people that got stopped for that.
