    I've noticed that some tailgate spreaders come with a 3rd brake light attached to them from the factory. Whats the law say about having to have one, since the spreader extends the length of the truck. I was thinking about installing one on my Buyers spreader for safety reasons, just wanted to hear some opinions.

    The more light/warning you have the better IMO.
