Cool, Jim
What exactly is your question again? Don't remove any marker lights, keep the original lights where they are, and you should be good to go. IIRC, mine has 3 amber in front, 3 red in rear and 4 top-corner lights (2 front, 2 rear), 2 top-center side lights. Total of 12 lights.

My question was in need of this answer: For my 2006 SAF-T-Liner, the side top marker lights are both for the side and the front and rear marker lights; making 10 lights do the work of 14. My believe that the wording on #2 of FMVSS "At widest point - symmetrical - on the front or near the front - facing forward" allows a side mounted forward facing marker.

Based on my reading of the dot rules, Your bus may not be in compliance with regulations if it is operating as other than a school bus. Best of luck.
Cool, Facebook Jim!

Cool, Facebook Jim!

I dunno man, I'm keeping the factory settings and if DOT has some cool opinions on that, I'll do my best to comply with whatever they suggest. Hasn't been a problem yet though. Let us know if you find an answer to your question.
