Hey guys,

I wanted to black out my stock 5 marker/cab lights on the top of my truck. I picked up a can of nightshades tail light dimmer from an auto parts store and completley blacked them out. But when night came, i turned them on to see if light would still shine through and the yellow lights turned RED! Ive heard different stories that in Texas you are not allowed to have any forward facing lights, but then i heard you can unless they are strobeing, which they obvious are not. Any ideas?
Thanks
-Grant

don't believe you can have any red lights facing forward it would look like the back of a vehicle just a safety thing i guess

From what I've been told (by the state trooper that pulled me over) is you can't have blue or red lights facing forward whether they flash or not. I had blue running lights on my bumper. But this is in Wyoming and I'm not sure if it's any different there but I don't think it is.

Bingo, No lights in common with emergency vehicles are allowed on the front of the truck. That's how it is here in Nebraska too.
