Illegal lights

I found out today that the auxillary lights mounted on my lightbar are not legal in the state of Nebraska! I think that NSP officer Peters, badge #548, just wanted to check out my awesome ride! LOL
Turns out Nebraska statute 60-3,167 allows 2 auxillary lights to be mounted no less than 12 inches and no more then 42 inches from the ground. In my book, this goes beyond bull sh**, beyond horse sh**, it's hog SH**!

You can have all the extra light's you want mounted on your truck you just can't run them all while your driving down the road and to ad to the dumbness of it all you can only run the 2 driving light's with your high beam's on yet most of the factory driving light's are all wired into teh low beam's. LMAO

No less than 12 inches to the ground? They better start pulling over ever rice burner with fog lights or driving lights.

It seriously sounds like he was bored with nothing better to do. I hate that. I had 2 150 watt lights mounted on a headache rack on my '71 Highboy with 36's. To give you an idea, the pickup barely fit in a 9'x7' door, without the headache rack on. Then I had a 9' whip mounted on the top of that.

No more than 42 inches above the ground? Guess I'd have to measure. I sold that '71, but I got a '74 Highboy. I agree with you man., that is a load of hog doo..... Where exactly is Meadow Grove?

Head west out of Omaha on hwy 275, Then you go and you go till Norfolk, Then you go father west till you hear a banjo? Well sorta. If it weren't for having to slow to 45mph, you'd miss it if you blinked.

You can have light's any where you want they just can't be "ON" if your on a public roadway. Atleast I belive that's how the law's read's in the book's

The way the "super trooper"interpreted it to me is they are not legal at all, off, covered, or ovtherwise. I used a heavier gauge trailer connector when I wired it so I can reinstall them when needed. They are a big drag when the wind is blowing anyhow. Might gain a couple MPG's.
I'll put them back on in a week or so for a clean-up job I'll be doing at a dairy farm, several big loads of scrap iron to haul in for recycle. Hope to make enough for some new tires and a locker or two.
