JLee, I am not sure about other states but in Alabama, you may have them for "offroad purposes only". This means you can uses them out in the woods, on a trail, car shows, even in public, but you must be sitting still, say in a parking lot. Back in the day, on saturday nights me and my buddies from high school would hang around town til the small hours of the morning, police just go by and make sure we weren't doing anything stupid. Even had them on when they'd go by...no big deal. The unlawfull use of these types of lights is when you are driving your truck on a state of rightaway (road) with them on. That is where you could get an arrest worthy charge of impersonating a law enforcement officer.
Ben...my guess as to the inexpensive cost of the lights is that they were produced in high volume amounts at a cheap cost and most likely done over seas, china as a hypothesis, I'd bet 10 bucks on it. I would come to think they are cheaply made and while they may work for awhile they would crack under climate changes, (winter, summer), burn out, or worse yet "cheap wiring" and short out. If you do go with these, I'd make sure a inline fuse was in my wiring diagram. P.S. I've been wanting to install some white strobes in my reverse lights, all the times i've put these on my cars and trucks I go to advanced and they always have them in stock. Think the last pair I put in was the headlights of my Camaro. They were about 40 bucks, fairly bright, easy to install and were well made. regardless of your choice, good luck!
