There was no sweeping generalization like you made about everyone in the Northeast getting busted for them. That is complete speculation and you speak from the hole in your butt.

I actually learned to think for myself a long long time ago. Do you really go about your whole life following every rule? If so, that's a sad existence. I've done nothing to this Jeep or in my day-to-day life in which I break the law, that is honestly putting anyone in danger, to reiterate once again.

If you want to have a boy scout attitude in your own realm, that's fine, but don't expect me not to have a retort at your obtuse comments.

*I also just realized this conservative gibberish is coming from someone who has a Guy Fawkes mask as his avatar. That irony does not escape me.

And I for one am all about form meeting function in harmony. My tail light tint is purely cosmetic, true, but your mud flaps on the other hand completely fail at their form and function. I couldn't even count how many people have said they had the mudflaps installed since day 1 of owning their Jeep, yet they still have rock chips along the side. That doesn't sound like a functional mod to me, when that's all it's good for. If they were really necessary, Jeep would've made them stock.

Again, the whole reason I even brought up your mudflaps was to take a blatant jab like you did, coming out of no where saying how you dislike what I did to my car and comment on how I spend my money. I could care less about discussing how dumb I think the mudflaps look and how you happen to have them. If they work for you, that's great, pep pep.

Enjoy wasting your money on getto mods...and nicked-up lower panels.
I didn't lose any sleep last night over your mudflaps, thank goodness!

In all honestly, you are absolutely right that you are entitled to your opinion and to share it with the world. Unfortunately though, the internet gives voices to people that just need to learn when to not say anything if they are contributing nothing to the discussion, ie: you. You came into this thread saying "what a f*cking waste of money" and yet you expect me not to reply? If anyone started any shit throwing, it was definitely you, pep pep.

"Ghetto" ... "race boy". Classy stuff. I'll take them all day, thanks. And this is where you exit back to the old folks home.

*And to everyone else's friendly comments, THANK YOU!

Haha this is too funny.

On another note NJ laws suck about the front Window tint. I've had 20% on the front for almost 2 years and never been bothered. I also have tinted tails that are probably brighter then your stock untinted ones. Also the front plate law is bs whenever I'm out of jersey I put the plate down (auto license plate)

Re: Tail Light Tinting - My Experience

I have been in traffic directly behind a car with tinted taillights; when the sun is hitting them directly it's very difficult to see them. A real hazard, but they definitively look good if you are willing to take the risk. I have an 11 y/o, so no way I would ever do this mod but I respect he OP's choice and they look great.

St. Louis County lawsuit is 'cautionary tale' on obscuring taillights : News

Now if you anyone is driving behind me with HID's on halogen projectors, I'm pulling over to the side and getting right behind them with my HID high beams until my next exit.

Thanks! And I appreciate the link to the article. It's true that it is definitely risky for some circumstances, but I was looking at the back of my Jeep in direct sunlight yesterday, and with the brake lights on, there was no problem seeing them because of the brightness of the LEDs. I could see how doing this to a 1978 Chevrolet pickup would be a bit different light output wise.

People like this do not know how to aim there hid headlights. Yes they see a lot brighter but you need to aim them down and readjust the aim when you add HID's to the stock housings. I had HID's in my halogen housings for years and never got flashed or anything because I aimed it down lower. I also had a friend drive my car and checked from another car as we drove. That's just being a dick high beaming them and can possibly cause another accident.

Correct my tail lights look completely black when off but when they are on Even in direct sunlight they are bright as ever. If you stayed with the regular lamps they wouldn't be bright enough.

The problems with tints come around when you use the vht night shades on regular tail lights and do too many coats. I've been behind some people whre I could barely see there lights on at night! If you guys want pics of my lights in direct sunlight let me know. Be happy to share.

Re: Tail Light Tinting - My Experience

i will say it is MUCH easier to see our LED tails than the stock halogens tinted. I never had a problem with my halogen but older family members have told me their concern with the light not being visible. Now with the leds its a different story.
