Re: Led frount turn signals/park lights for GMC?

I believe you when you say that you do not work for the DOT Rob, however given the quality of work that you do, you probably should!
There is another vague and annoying lighting law here in South Carolina that I would also have to figure out how to get around. It is called "changing the design of lights". It does not go into any real specifics and in my opinion is very ridiculously vague.

I must check to see if these are considered as such before purchasing any. Hard to believe something that makes a vehicle easier to see could have a law against it.
Probably just a poorly written law meant to address a broken lens. I'd think since L.E.D.s are allowed on newer vehicles that older vehicles could run them. That's why people are getting them for their older vehicles, so all the knuckleheads who are used to such bright lights will notice ours. In the opposite direction, I've been pulled over in 6v vehicles with tiny (factory) tail lamps for not being bright enough. I asked the officer what the required minimum candlepower was and he couldn't say. I wonder if there is even a maximum rating established to enforce the bright light law

Just so everyone is aware...in order to install these you will need to drill out the rivets that hold the lense on. They are designed so that you remove the lense and gasket. The tabs go against the face of the housing and correspond with the two holes. At this point you have two options.
1 pop rivit the panel in place, re install gaskets and lenses.
2. Place tabs against housing re install gaskets on top, te install lense. Install small screws through lens,gasket, led,housing and secure.
The main thing to remember is that the tab should go against the metal housing, gasket on top, then lense.

I like the staggered look better. If you do a set like that post a picture. I'd like to see how they look staggered

You can't pop rivet the panel in place whare you have the taps is how the light mounts to the grill.
There whare never and rivet thare the holes are threaded for the screws that mount the light.

Couple of pics of a set mounted in running light mode! They get much brighter on turn. You can see video on my IG @disciple2.rc
