Lifted /w Neons

My friends and I were talking about neons on cars, and i was wondering how good/goofy neons would look on a lifted truck. Ive never seen one before so i was just curious. If anyone has pics that would be awesome.

i had some on my truck with 33s...IMO it look iight but since your so high off the ground you need alot to make it look bright..around town theres a yota on 38s with like 4 sets of green that looks iight


but if you get neon..NO MORE MUD cuz you wont see em you break them...

I went offroading in my ranger and had my neons on the whole time. They survive if they are well placed. I seen a lifted mazda with blue neons, it look great.

if you can see the neon itself, then the installer sucks big time....

LED Underbody kit. I had one on my 93. Not for very long before I sold them, and it wasnt lifted, but it was neat. I had some 7 Color LED system. Better than Neons because of thier durability, and because you can often get more than 1-Color.

I guess it depends if you went with the tube lighting, or the spot lights (or pot lights).

The whole point is to makes the ground to glow, and not to see them. So if you could pull that off....I guess it would look o.k. But definatly need some pics here.

I agree I like neons, or the LED light bars if you can't see them and you just see the glow. I've seen it on a lifted f-150 and it look good. But you prob wouldnt see it on the ground.

i have neons on mine, and i have uet to raise it or lower it... i would honestly say to use the LED neons vs. the tubes.
I have the tubes and they arnt all that bright, but that can be from being tht they are 2 yrs old or due to the fact that I only have the 2 side ones on...I never had the front and the back ones nounted because I was told that id I hit a bump to hard that i would break them in half.

I can tell you at least where I live that you don't want green,red, or blue. They are colors reserved for emergency vehicles. Yes i know you never see emergency vechicals with green lights but its in the law here. I got a ticket for having green neons in a green dodge dakota I had a few years back. They were writing tickets that night just for neon violations. When I went to pay the $65 ticket the clerk said 6 other people had paid for that violation that week. You see people with them here all the time but if the po po gets bored they can bust you for it.

these trucks are pretty gay but the light does reach the ground and it could look good if you kept it more simple than these guys.
