    Yup.
    This is my second truck with clears in the reverse lenses.
    So far, I've had no issues.

    In fact last year there was a car that had spun-out onto the lawn of one of my customers. There was a cop on scene when I got there. He told me he had a tow truck on the way.
    I offered to pull the car off of the lawn (mainly so I wouldnt have to wait). He agreed. I fired up the strobes, stopped traffic and hooked my tow strap to the car and to my A frame. A gentle tug, and the car was out. Cop watched the whole thing - waved and left.

    most cops dont care, its the ones with nothing better to do than to nit pick with their god complex that piss me off...luckily most of the cops in town arent bad....as long as your not driving around like a meathead you dont get bothered around here!

    I have clear strobes in all four corners, and two clear strobes in cab light. Never been bothered on the north shore.
