Whether you add them or not is up to you (I didn't). I'm just letting you know if you get pulled over (again probably unlikely) and get a ticket you will know why.
i havent been pulled over in this tj, i was just trying to avoid being pulled over for lack of a 3rd brake light.

It's a Federal reg - found in FMVSS (49CFR Part 1.) If it was originally on there, it's required to be there - even if it's dumb (like DRL.)

Caused me a headache when I was wiring lighting controllers, since flashing the third light wasn't allowed, I had to run bypass wiring to keep it solid while the side brake lamps were wired to flash. (Wiring in headlamp flashers with DRLs was likewise fun...)

this tj may have gotten away with it since the dealer i bought it from was the one who inspected it. they prolly didnt want to have to replace the tails with something else. i dont know how i feel about these tail lights becasue the tub has big holes cut into it for them. i can never go back to a stock tail light.
