from my experience if you ask 10 cops a question you will get 10 different answers. just forget about it. i was told i wasnt allowed to have lights on my roll bar. when i told the cop that hummers and even jeep libertys have them stock he said no they dont if i see you with them again i will have your truck impounded[35]

just say yes sir yes maam sure whatever you say then forget you ever had the conversation and try not to think about how 25% of the money you earn is going to give these idiots jobs.

At least they are finally doing something about the car stealing and the fact that every second young man is a drug dealer in the south okanagan now.

if a cop is reading this please sign up and respond. i know they monitor these forums...

1... it's not an option, you need a roll pan or a bumper. i've never seen a toyota truck without one. you need a rear bumper of some sort. it must cover your body, the ends of your frame rails, and be the furthest point rearward of your body.

2. the lights, you cannot run driving lights without a cover on the highway or in town. they must have a cover to prevent you from using them. fog lights can be used but must be yellow/amber in color, and only come on with your high beams, or on a seperate switch. if you get caught the officer can order them to be removed, or issue a VI notice, not impound the veichle.

Lights only need a cover if theyre higher then your headlights if they are below you dont need covers

I dont know about that, i asked at sport trucks and he told me that you need covers no matter where their located, it dont realy make sence on why youd only need covers if they were higher than your headlights. I say best is to just put the covers on, save your self the hassle of dealing with the cops.

well my 2 cents is you have to have a bumper.. ICBC shit..
I am redoing a 4runner atm and had to supply a temp channel
till done (as gratis i did) as far as lights go.. need to
be covered above headlights but ive never been caught or
questioned on the issue personaly..

untill else fails, do it, go for it, with no worries.. [36]

what is a roll pan?is that just body molded down over the frame rails with hevy steal back behind the new body molding ?
i took some 3"x1/4" chanel steel slid it in the fram rail ends caped the end with 4"x1/4"x3' pice of steel conecting the 2 ends put a 2" recever in the center , put a tow hook on eather side and it works great. i now have a boxed frame 2" reacever and tow hooks and what i hope to be a leagel bumber, i just dont know what the cops would say about it [:p]

A roll pan is a peice of whatever, steel, fiberglass, lots of custom lowrider trucks use em. They replace the bubper; it fits in between the box ends and then rolls in at the bottom for a clean look and then bolts onto the frame. When used on the lowrider trucks it purely for looks, to clean and smooth out the back of the truck. I guess u could build one out of some heavy guage steel and the put a reciver on and tow hooks, but that be kinda dumb, youd probably end up building more of a bumper anywheys, even if u were going for the roll pan look

The Motor Vehicle Act states section 8-5 Rear Bumper NOT reqired on trucks. So he might be right, since you can hardly consider a toyota a truck[15]

the cop told me no lights up top covered or not because you can be charged with impersonating a police officer or ambulance [freak]

Man i couldnt dissagree with you more on this. Have you ever driven in thick fog with your highbeams on??? The whole point of a fog light is that they can be used and switched on seperately from the main headlights, (quite often just your markers are left on and only the fog lights are on in really bad conditions) and for them to be effective must be as close to the ground as possible.
