I'm too tired to explain my post if that is what you are referencing. Read it again.

Just because people do things doesn't make it legal. I see people put blue lights on their cars, even forward facing ones. Only cops can do that in CA. Fire and ambulance can't do that.

Might be cause most off-roaders aren't 12 feet high.

Tango; the very top of my blinking lights are 8' 4" off the ground, not 12 feet, and that's comparable to the height of the fog lights of many four wheel drive trucks.

Crazy; don't need to read your message again. You wrote very simply the first time. You don't need to be insulting just because I don't agree with you. People don't generally use fog lights while driving around in public. I think there's a distinction between driving lights and fog or utility lights.

Low; I think Low probably uses those lights in the appropriate setting. A question for Low. Are those three lights covered? I don't see anything illegal about them.

I wasn't being insulting. I am tired. His lights are covered. He is in CA. He is completely legal. Drive with those lights uncovered and he is outside the law. He might pass 2000 officers before one decides to pull him over and write him a fix it ticket. That's the way it works.

As far as the 4x4 community is concerned, they can figure that out for themselves. I see some of their trucks that they thinks are sooo cool but have dozens on violations. My motto is live and let live, except for the douchebags with their stacks rolling coal. If I was a cop, I''d have those guys pulled over in a heartbeat. It's because of jerks like that our diesel trucks need to get smog checked. Pages of violations they would get. Headlight height, tires sticking out past fenders, the list would go on and on and on.

What did your mother tell you when you were little and you got busted for something? "Just because Johnny did it, doesn't mean you can too. If Johnny jumped off a building, would you do it?"

Was Johnny jumping out of a barn into a pile of hay?

I like the idea of the wire shelving in the overhead. Sure gives you more storage space.

There are a number of closet organizing systems at the home stores that seem to have this type of wire shelving. Excellent idea.

Most home improvement box stores will cut to fit the wire shelves. Kinda handy for space and time with blankets and such.
