You can do what you want just be prepared for the ticket. I used to run no front plates on my sports cars and got some tickets for that.

I guess it depends where you live, ive been pulled over a couple times for the tails i just got out and pulled the covers off and the officer said "see you later" no ticket..

But to target peeps with HID's and tinted tails is just BS, about 5 my friends in town are cops they would just tell you to chill on that stuff, worry about the important things

Installing HID's in a vehicle that did not originally come with them is illegal. That being said, if the kit replaces both the light and the lens with a correctly shaped projection lens they probably aren't any more dangerous. That is, if they are also pointed correctly.

I thought about getting some since I do a fair bit of night driving, but I have personally chosen to use only 100% legal parts on my truck. In the end though. It's up to you.

Now, back to the actual discussion.


I think the color matched headlights look awesome. No mater if they are blue, white, or black. It gives the whole truck a more cohesive look IMO.
