    In some states you are not allowed to have more than 2 sets of lights on at a time... that is why the fog lights shut off when the high beams come on...

    Covers on like some ppl have been saying for the rock protection, but paint them black. Or if you end up not liking them, put some colored or clear laminate/vinyl on the lights so you still get the rock protection...sure would suck to crack one of those.

    I'm putting on my lightbar today and I'm going to use both a laminate cover and I painted my light covers black.

    I'd go with covers off...

    Can you post pics of the switches... I like to see where people have them installed...

    And where did you get the light bar from??? I was thinking about getting one too... that looks great...

    In some states you have to have the lights covered when "On Road". You can get a ticket for driving without the covers on, because its illegal to use off-road lights while "on road" and police know you can just flip a switch before they pull you over.

    I even looked into placing clear covers on the lights to avoid the ticket, but the law states the covers placed on the lights cannot be clear.

    Looks good, the bar looks identical to the N-Fab.

    I say keep the covers off. You never know when you may need the lights and not have time to take off the covers.
