    I wouldn't think it would be a problem unless you're driving around town with it on, and there's no reason to do that anyway.

    You don't need a permit, it's not like you'll be using it on public roadways

    I want to meet the cop that has good enough eyes to see the bulb in your brake light! And even if he did see it, he can't give you a ticket! Because their is no law that says you can't have sirens, strobes or lightbars on your truck, you just can't use them on public roadways, now if you're parked on the side of the road, it's fine but your four ways work much better because they're in your trailer too.
    Now downg ge me wrong, I have used my strobes when pulling someone out of the ditch, or pulling a truck of of harms way to a gas station or the guys house, or if I am doing work right next to the street and I have to block a lane, I'll use my truck as a "road block" just so I am little safe, but doing work for corner houses next to the street is a pita because you have to worry about two road, and I usually set up my trailer for that and truck and a burris truck.


    So that's my story!

    You can't get a permit in NJ unless you are a government contractor.

    if your vehicle is commercially registered, you can get a permit from NJ MVC in trenton. the permit is good for 4 years.



    not true,. i have held a permit for over 30 years now.
    it is very easy to get, as long as your vehicle has commercial registration.
