I've never been a fan of it. I would rather have rock lights.

I can't take any vehicle with under glow seriously. Just hate it.

Rock lights are great I've had a set on the Jeep for years, mostly for night recovery of some genius that decided to go out and get stuck ... Currently has 8 lights lighting up the ground and entire underneath, I had 4 and couldn't see when I got close to hanging up on some stuff, so I doubled it when I got home from that trip.

Slowly swapping them out with some Oznium led floods to make them even brighter and less current draw... hoping I can get the same if not better output using 4/5 of them... plus they are way more waterproof than the ones I have on now...

lol love the input guys.... and these lights are light rock lights you can see EVERYTHING under your truck..... i went off road this past weekend and watched all kinds of things under my truck plus being there LEDs i could leave them on and not have to worry if someone else on the trail sees my truck......

yes red is illiegel here in FL as well but i dont care. lol

and we got the idea watching fast and furious honestly but never acted on it untill my buddies truck got rammed into while he was stuck.....

i love them ill be adding more lights to cover some spots and and to have full lighting under the truck..... (fenderwells) and they are great when your working under your truck and night and dont want a blinding light in your eyes....

ill take pictures next time i go off road and post them on here for yall.....

and there not neon they are LED strips that are about 12" long and maybe 1/4" thick and made of like a gel so they flex which is great when you got rocks that fly up and hit them.... they are also waterproof..... and require NO DRILLING!!!

You have dark spots on yours as well. White is a better color to see with then red while offroading.

Yeah with red you lose a lot of detail and depth perception. Our eyes physically cant see red light as well... but it does keep your night vision... some tradeoff I guess.

No drilling? did you double stick tape them on? I sure hope you used something at least as good as zip ties....

Looks like crap, but that is just me. Even honda guys don't use that junk anymore. Friend ran a pink set on his Lincoln drift car at CFRC as a joke....

yall think im crazy but these things really do work amazing!!!!!!! everything is clear under my truck i can see depth just fine with red. and the dark spots are only there in the pictures but in person they're not.
i put these lights to the test lastnight out at the mud hole and i slinging dirt and mud and water EVERYWHERE!!!! and when i washed my truck with the pressure washer the lights were still there and shining like nothing happened/.... i love these things so much im putting them on EVERY off road vehicle i have maybe a different color but the same lights
