so not legal. What I suspected.

And, for that matter, not safe.

Well if OP gets rear ended in the future, we'll know why the law exists!
Give me a break. Find that verbiage in your PA laws. The guy was referencing CA laws which in every aspect is a whole different world.

My wife got rear ended at 50mph in her brand new grand cherokee that had all the factory brake lights and didnt help worth a crap since the girl wasnt paying attention.

Man you must be real fun at parties. I take it you’re not a fan of those of us who drive with darker tint on our windows than whats legal too? We better not see you driving around on the roads with your light bar on or lightbar/offroad lights not covered per the PA law.

Did you know in FL, you also dont need side mirrors when your jeep doors are off, so long as you have a rearview mirror. Every state is different with these type of things.

What are you reading that I am missing? 34 inches off ground is only requirement (except passenger cars, which can be lower…).

I’m Not sure if it’s as visible from more than 45 degrees to the sides, but it’s legal and probably just as safe for 99.9% of rear ending situations.
🤷‍♂️

This seems to say it needs to be above the taillights.

Look to each their own. Dude wants to ride around without a higher stop lamp. By all means. Will anything ever happen to him? Likely not. (Hopefully not) But there's a reason it was made a law and a safety requirement.
Unless it was big stop lamp. Probably got to the government, weren't making enough money with only 2 stop lamps. Few handshakes, a couple free stop lamps and boom. Required on all vehicles, but provides no safely at all! Damn big stop lamp, laughing all the way to the bank.

Plus if he is ever rear ended, he'll lose any insurance battles since it's an illegal setup.

But again, to each their own.

Actually I'm not. I can't stand drivers with dark tinted front windows. You can't see the other drivers and body language sometimes helps when at stop lights, stop signs, intersections, etc... But when you can't see them I have no idea who is waving who on. It's like looking into an empty soul. Pure darkness.

Damn kids think they're soooooo cool. Ohhhh look at me... Oh wait, you can't see me behind these pitch black windows.

I used to be fun at parties. Then I got old. So. Yeah.

🤣🤣

Seems weird that you don't want to watch yet expect someone else to get the info for you. I mean the guy did the install to show and help uds all. If you click on it in the thread there are no advertisements to waste your preciouse time. I will answer your question though..... It looks fine. It looks like your typical jeep install and it was a good video.
I don't like you tube either, but I sure do watch it for just about everything I don't know how to do!

I didn’t like the location of the stock 3rd brake lamp & I wanted to make room for larger tires. There’s not many options out currently & the ones that are available just don’t look great. I purchased this kit from Amazon that was made for a Jeep Wrangler but made it work on the Bronco. Needless to say I’m pretty happy with the results & the new look. Let me know what you guys think.

i saw this the other day when u posted on youtube brother. great easy to follow video and helped me make the jump to order. gotta fit my 37's on there. hahaha

I'm about to throw a 35 up on my BL and if it doesn't clear the brake light I'm probably going with this.

But again, to reach their own.
I highly doubt it qualifies as an illegal set up in any state. Most states don't have a height requirement for the third brake light, just has to be in the center and working... Including your state of PA. And those that do, it's mounted plenty high enough to make it legal.

If it's not your thing, either just say that or nothing. You must be loads of fun at parties...

I'm pretty sure I did say it wasn't my thing.

Here I'll bold it for you. I know reading is hard for a lot in this country.
