LED's Street legal

I really want to buy these D series led lights from Rigid and use them on the road but I am not sure if they are street legal. How do I know if they are too bright?

as long as you adjust them so they don't blind on coming traffic, I don't see why it wouldn't be a problem. I ran KC lights mounted on my windshield last winter for about a week till I hunted down an electrical problem I had that caused just my headlights to stop working. All I did was point them down an toward the shoulder of the road a little bit and never got "flashed" or pulled over for it. Where do you plan on mounting them?

What do you need to use them on the road for? If you have a lighting issue on road address it with your headlights.

As to your question, you need to check local state law on vehicle lighting but generally onroad you can usually run headlights and a set of low mounted fogs (which the duallys really are not). Nothing high mounted.

X2 on both. Go down to your local cop shop and ask them about legal lumens and candle power.
Remember this one good rule. If an item has a legal disclaimer on the sales description then you can't sue them for misuse and they probably aren't intend for anything other than what they're sold for.
In my area we write tickets for aftermarket lights alot.

I was going to mount them at the bottom of my windshield. The main reason for getting them is because the stock headlights suck.

Then address the headlights as I said before. There are lighting and harness upgrades available.

I don't believe there is any state where running windshield mounted lights illuminated while on road is going to fly.

Also, even for offroad, I believe the duallys you linked are flood pattern. For windshield mounted you'd want spot pattern (which they do make).

LED options for headlights are either Trucklite or JW Speaker.

If you do not want to build your own headlight relay harness's, send this guy an email. He can probably hook you up with what you need for a good price. Headlight.upgrade@yahoo.com
