To my knowledge blue lights are not legal in any state.

I forgot this will be put on a 2004 Yukon XL Denali with 23" rims with 3 inch spacers that allow the Yukon tires to stick out of the wheel well about an inch. I limotinted over the factory tint making at black with no seeing inside at all. The front windows I went a little darker then legal but Im pushing the envelope. 2 7: alpine screens in the front dash and a 24 inch LCD flipdown in the back. Alpine M300 Navigation, K&N Cool Air system with a self invented 1800RPM turbo installed right before the intake which give about 50+HP and 3 more MPH. I put my time into this unit and Im still adding as I go. I modified my verizon air card to be used in internet netflix for the Yukon. Max Air Flow Exhaust that I installed my self. My auto ride kept alarming so I put 4 inch air bags on all for wheels independantly for a low ride or a cruising height of about 1.5 inches. I was thinking about installing a GT77 supercharger that would compliment my patented 1800RPM turbo. I also installed the Pulstar Pulse plugs which increased MPG by 2. I currently have helium in all four tires but see no difference. Im always looking for away to get as much as I can out of my ride. Does anyone have any suggestions.

That ios what I kind of thought, Ive always wanted new tail lights with more chrome in them and if I get pulled over I have no other choice but to get them and my wife cant deny me them. All of my additions have been under the wife radar. The tinit she will notice but other wise I think Im pretty much stealth when it comes to my wife'* eyes.

Blue is reserved for use by law enforcement agencies. No outside lights can be blue. Red can only face the rear, white can only face in the direction of motion, and yellow is to indicate a turn and side markers of the car. If you think about it, you see red, you know it'* the back of the car, white is coming at you, and yellow is the side of the car. Flashing red is a fire truck, and flashing red and blue is a police car.

What do you call "blue dots"? Actual blue lights, or the little dots like on some old hot rods? I don't know if the hot rod style dots are illegal or not..

I looked around and it looks like your asking for a ticket. Also, if you don't care about that, it seems you want glass, not plastic.

the blue dot with the red lens when lit actually does not produce a blue light at all. when lit the actually turn the tails lights purple. but you will still get a ticket for them unless they are on a show vehicle or classic that doesn't get driven much
