    I think the law covers the color, not the light. You're ok with blue, green, etc. Red is generally not acceptable. This is going off memory.

    I don't think Texas code covers any of that. That's all online. It would have to be in the county/city or other municipality. Try Houston Traffic Laws on google or something like that.

    Here is a good rule our Police go by. Don't mount the bulbs in such a way as to see the actual bulb itself. I did a set a while ago for my son and I mounted them inside the frame rails. As for colour I'm thinking the same thing as Steve. Good luck. BTW blue would look "tight" on that black truck :great:

    Most states I have seen do not allow them while driving or visible when driving unless they match the clearance colors on the vehicle.

    But, I could be wrong. Red and blue are associated with emergency along with white in states.

    In Kaahleefornyah (Arnold says it that way) the law states that as long as the source can not be seen the auxiliary lighting is OK. Don't know about Houston, but isn't it just a fix-it ticket or would that be a moving violation?
