    Hi guys,
    I've been searching around and is there a clear lens for the third brake light on our trucks?
    I've been thinking about placing some blue LEDS in the housing but they wont show as good with a red lens. Any info would be helpful.

    illegal to use blues for stop lights. you could get cited for impersonating an emergency vehicle.

    Having brake lights any color but red is just asking for a ticket or a vehicle going up your ass.

    Awesome CB setup, TRD leaf springs, matching camper shell...more to come some day.

    That varies state to state...some states it's legal.
