Stupid or Cool?

https://www.google.com/search?q=Plas...w=1536&bih=796

What if I wired up red LED panels behind each of the 7 black hexagon panels on the grill of the Jeep? The Grill would "glow" red.

Is that illegal? They wouldn't flash or anything. I already installed Red LED's in the foot wells of the front and back seats replacing the simple bulb.

Thoughts? ...and how could this be done....product wise.

Re: Stupid or Cool?

Off-road or stationary is ok. If you had them on while driving I think you would get pulled over pretty darn fast..

Re: Stupid or Cool?

Since it's common practice for official vehicles to have colored lights located in those areas on unmarked setups, I think you would be courting some attention you may not want...even when stationary if off your own property.

Re: Stupid or Cool?

Red lights in the front might get you charged with impersonating a police officer.

Re: Stupid or Cool?

I found this. RED is ok with permit..not flashing.

GA State Law on LED Scanners, Strobes, Halo's, and Side markers. - Camaro5 Chevy Camaro Forum / Camaro ZL1, SS and V6 Forums - Camaro5.com

Other Georgians have claimed that officers have spoken to them and said that they are fine with red..NEVER FLASHING...and NEVER BLUE.

How is this different from under car red neon?

I certainly don't want a ticket...so I will print out this law and keep it with me.

Thank you all for the responses.

In some areas, so would blue...different police forces use different lighting patterns.

Varies upon jurisdiction. In Quebec, it is illegal.

Re: Stupid or Cool?

Better to do it where you can see it. My Ford has interior accent lights that can be varied in color (7) and intensity. When you open either front door, those lights turn red.

Why try to impress on coming traffic, they DGARA.

Re: Stupid or Cool?

From experience...you're asking asking to pulled over and get summons! Not worth the aggregation IMHO.

Re: Stupid or Cool?

I'am with Mt not cool. Why ruin the look of a perfectly great looking vehicle with some cheesy looking grill lites. That look has come and gone a long time ago. There are many more things you can do to your GC to make it stand out. Sorry but you asked.
