Yeah, I think that's what he was asking. Or wondering how they would look if they had them. Then again, I may have completely misunderstoodI know... but I'm saying the XD doesn't come with them...
...unless, we're talking about the potential to add them post purchase...?
Actually I doubt they could be legally added post purchase. Clearance lights are federally mandated. XD isn't wide enough, but the Raptor is... I wonder what the difference in widths is.Yeah, I think that's what he was asking. Or wondering how they would look if they had them. Then again, I may have completely misunderstood
Understanding DOT regulations can be a real pain. To sum up the reasons for the clearence lights give the DOT officers a quick reference as to the tonnage of the vehicle, besides the safety equipment thats required on trucks that exceed certian GVWs. Some 3/4 to vehicles actually have a capacity rating of over a ton and require them, some dont. ALL DUAL WHEEL trucks HAVE to have them, and this includes the 3/4 ton Ford duallys. All one ton trucks, whether or not its a dually, have the GVW rating requireing clearence lights. Some 3/4 ton trucks fall under the required saftey requirements and then can be an option,,,,,to a point.
NO 1/2 ton truck should sport clearance lights and that is enforced in some states, if you have them on a 1/2 ton and they are ON (operating) while on a state controlled road you can be cited for misrepresenting the tonnage of your truck. Some people put them on just to be "cool", yet some that know the laws and try to skirt them at night will try to use a 1/2 ton or an under rated 3/4 to to pull or haul loads over rated for the truck and is dangerous. They try to run those loads under the cover of night with the clearance lights to misrepresent the truck as to having the correct rating. They do this because 1/2 tons and light 3/4 tons are cheaper to buy, register and insure.
