    I have a Wrangler with a hardtop and wanted to put some strobe lights on it. I wanted to know which colors are allowed by law?
    The strobes that go on the roof with suction cups, do you think they would keep falling off of my roof since its plastic?
    Also can I use clear strobes ?
    If I put the strobes inside right up against the windshield , would it somehow get in my way?
    I found a something on ebay that can give me extra reverse lights and strobes what do you think?[​IMG]

    I know its alot of questions, any answers would be good.
    Thanx

    suction cups HAVE to be used on SMOOTH finish. Your wrangler has a pebble grain to it, right?? It wont work .........

    Suction cup won't stick to the hardtop on a Wrangler.

    On my CJ, I used something like this with a FedSig Highlighter on it........

    Lightbar

    Mine was a little different, the bars went all the way down to the windshield hingers, but pretty much the same thing.

    amber(yellow) is the only color your allowed to use

    if you do hideaways you can get away with white and red as long as amber is also visible

    Right, forgot about that other part of the question......

    In Illinois, red can only flash in the back, no white flashes. Blue and red is probably in illegal in all states.

    Amber is the way to go.

    Color depends on the state. Check your local laws. In Ma you can use amber and clear facing in either direction, red facing rear only and no blue. I don't believe you can use green either.

    Thanx guys,
    I have 2 white strobes that I have, that I am gona use for the front and I think I am gona get the pair of lights in the pisture I attached. its a driving light and it has a red strobe in it. Mount those under the bumper on the back. The only thing that concerns me about them, is that they are 4", might be kind of big for the rear. But this way I can kill two birs with one stone.
