Got pulled over tonite for having extra lights behind my grill of my truck. They are the Autozone license plate lights(LED white). THe cops said someone called and said someone had blue lights following them. Because my bumper and grill are blue the Seriff deputies thought it was me and gave me a lecture about the colors, these are the same if not lighter than the HIDs that everyone is running nowadays.
I think the idiot that called was the guy who pulled out in front of me and then got stuck in traffice behind me and got brake checked. I hate people like that, they do the wrong things and try to get someone else in trouble, they also showed up at the traffic stop.

cops hate aftermarket stuff regardless and are more than happy to give you shit for it
Many of them dislike aftermarket, but some have been known to give compliments on it when pulling over for other reasons.

That being said though, whenever you do a mod on the car, try as hard as possible to make it look OEM like as if it were simply some factory option.

Anyways, when I do mods, I always keep the 5-0 and their usual tendencies in mind. For that reason I don't use underglow/accent LED's, tint, strobes, high K temp HID (I use 4300 for main beams and 3000K for fogs), HID in reflector housings (I use projectors for a reason...), glasspacks, straight piped exhaust, or loud mufflers.

To date, I've only been pulled over for equipment once, and that was simply because the LED bulb I used in my license plate light had burned out, leaving my plate dark.

Thing is when I hit the brakes and if someone is not paying attention, the other person could get hurt or killed depending on speed, it was in my truck with the 350 pound rear bumper. And what is the problem with extra lighting that is not bright, just an attention getter. I hate this toilet of a state called ALABAMA, 2 yrs and 9 months and I am back to the real world.

And they just had an incident where someone pulled out in front of someone else on the highway and did get killed two days ago in this same area.
