And thats the reason you are not putting them on, because you dont like them. Everyone has a preference on what they want on their trucks and how they want them to look. No need to knock them for it

I wouldnt like them on my '01. But on the plow truck they look good. Prolly cause it already has a yellow flasher on top and the plow lights up front. For me its more of a saftey thing then looks. Altho I do like how they look.
