    You can get a 3 month pass. Call your local dot and ask them about it. It is intended for trucks that are pulled over often and have nothing found wrong, this will allow you next time you get pulled over to just head on your way and skip the dot stop. I believe you have to redo it every 3 months.

    I've read some real ignorant statements before but you take the cake ! Go to a store and purchase some truck magazines and look at some of the articles on truck shows and tell us what you see. Doesn't look like NAACP convention to me.

    I have to agree the truck looks alittle goofy with all the lights and chains hanging off the front, it reminds me of the guys who add all the goofly looking running lights to their big rigs

    you dont think a rolling Las Vegas Casino looks goofy? I really never understood why a person needs so much attention.

    You spend all day just about everyday in a rig and you would do it up too.

    I have noticed an increase in DOT inspections, especially on the back roads. With most states being broke, is it any wonder.

    I like lights. I actually like MORE lights on trucks than LESS. Not only for safety....but I just plain like them.

    It is no worse than you putting a landscape in your lawn. Those guys live in the truck. Same difference!

    That is fine. Do what you want. But it still will not make sense to me.

    a few comments...you dont need alot of strobes for night work, they are easier to see at night and more lights are blinding. I say for day perhaps you may want a few more as they are harder to see. I always thought they should have dimmers for night. as far as being pulled over, Id send the cheif of police in each town or troop commander a letter explaining it. ask him for return phone call and go in and make a formal complaint for their internal affairs to look into. there are good cops and there are bad cops. if your driving fine and being harrassed, go after them. if your driving like an idiot and they are messign with you, then they are doing their job!

    by the way, what towns are messing with you?
