Default New mod for the 99

Well the 99 got a new mod. Wired up a 160watt strobe light kit. Getting ready for winter and pulling people outta ditches lol. Still need to wire up the couple of amber ones I have for the grille and it will be done. The video just doesn't catch the lights well as they flash way too fast but you get the point lol.

HAHAHA. He would pull me over and ask me why I had them on I'm sure but I can't get a ticket for them. I did my research before I added them and I can have and use them on the road for emergency purposes. They can not be red or blue. They have to be white or amber which are "caution" colors like the city utility trucks and such use. I plan to use them during winter time when I am constantly pulling people out of the snow lol.

I know in the CA that these are definitely illegal, as strobe or flashing lights are reserved for emergency vehicles.

Quote:
CALIFORNIA VEHICLE CODE
SECTION 25250-25282




25250. Flashing lights are prohibited on vehicles except as
otherwise permitted.



25251. (a) Flashing lights are permitted on vehicles as follows:
(1) To indicate an intention to turn or move to the right or left
upon a roadway, turn signal lamps and turn signal exterior pilot
indicator lamps and side lamps permitted under Section 25106 may be
flashed on the side of a vehicle toward which the turn or movement is
to be made.
(2) When disabled or parked off the roadway but within 10 feet of
the roadway, or when approaching, stopped at, or departing from, a
railroad grade crossing, turn signal lamps may be flashed as warning
lights if the front turn signal lamps at each side are being flashed
simultaneously and the rear turn signal lamps at each side are being
flashed simultaneously.
(3) To warn other motorists of accidents or hazards on a roadway,
turn signal lamps may be flashed as warning lights while the vehicle
is approaching, overtaking, or passing the accident or hazard on the
roadway if the front turn signal lamps at each side are being flashed
simultaneously and the rear turn signal lamps at each side are being
flashed simultaneously.
(4) For use on authorized emergency vehicles.

I got them on ebay. They were not hard to install. Had to drill out holes in the tails, third brake light, and corners.

I shall try. It is really hard to get them on video though as they flash 3 times each side very fast! Lol my camera just picks up one here and there
