    If you go to the right place, they'll pass you with your windshield painted matte black and no wheels.

    If you buy them as a set it’ll save you $10

    I love them though. Can’t comment on the inspection aspect of it. I have mine tied directly into my reverse lights. What you could do is wire them into your reverse lights with a quick disconnect in them. Then come inspection time, just unplug it so they don’t come on.

    Per the inspection law, backup lamps aren't required, but if they're installed they must work and have the appropriate certifications marked on the lens. The way the law reads, it sounds like you would be okay if you unhooked the factory backup light connectors and removed the bulbs. Replacement lamps would need to be SAE-R marked for backup lights. They might let you slide with something that isn't SAE-R marked, but it's going to depend on the shop and how strict they are.

    Coming to work today was a mistake, but I didn't want to waste my leave if I didn't have to. Was still 2 hr late getting in.

    They way I wired mine up are a little more advanced but I love the function of it. I have all my reverse lights hooked up to a relay and can be triggered by a switch or the reverse signal from the truck. I put a diode in the truck signal to prevent back feed if I turn on the switch.

    Then I combined all my rear lights grounds to a single switch that allows me to "blackout" everything "illegal" on the back of the truck. That way if I'm backing up in traffic or around a cop I don't blind everyone. It also makes it easier for state inspections because I can just kill all the rear lights I need to with a single switch.

    I’m just gonna risk it for the biscuit and hope I don’t get a ticket if I’m backing up around a cop. Though yesterday I was pulling someone out of a ditch and a couple cops had a lane blocked for me to work, and they didn’t mention it while I was reversing. Though I woulda been surprised if they did.

    Hahaha that would have been a super dick move.

    "Hey thanks for pulling him out....now here's your ticket for non-SAE R reverse lights."

    You'll probably be fine with just the Rigid Ignites. I've got the Baja S2 pros and the Baja RTL-S back there also. It's a lot of light.

    Yeah when you were backing up at Shane’s, as soon as you threw it in reverse Adam and I just started laughing at how many lights you have and how bright it is back there. It’s so awesome.

    Has anyone had to redo their ball joints on a 2nd gen?
    What was the damage?
    Just got a quote that seemed high.

    We redid the lower ball joints on Adams truck. Just cost the price of moog ball joints and the rental of the press kit.

    It was right as it started to snow Sat about 1700. Went to get groceries and RX, just moved in with family at a new house, GPS didnt have the address as its new construction.
    Blindly following GPS to the letter, got to the creek and it said turn right, instead of going through and followong the road as it curves right, literally turned down the creek bed. Theres a hole about 3 ft deep just downstream, car dropped in, back L wheel was up off the ground almost entirely out of the h20.
    I backed my truck up as close as possible, climbed out the window, put the rear window down, used the rear window as a step and climbed into the bed, tow strap out, able to hook the tow hitch on the car and clumb back in and it pull out.
    Weirdest part for me was once the car was out, i opened the door and the amount of h2o that poured out l. Like a movie scene, anytjing that had been on the floor was floating.
