What Are Rock Lights?

How to Choose Rock Lights?

Although headlights and fog lights are useful to see the road around you at night, rock lights are designed to be installed underneath the vehicle so that drivers can see rocks and debris that might potentially cause damage to the vehicle.

What is the Point of Rock Lights?

Rock lights are often used in off-road driving, but they have many other advantages as well. Among the best features of rock lights is their ability to provide drivers with excellent nighttime visibility so that athletes and recreational vehicle drivers alike can enjoy a sleek look while feeling safe at night.

Why do People Love Rock Lights?

People love rock lights for many reasons. The obvious one is that they look crazy and give your build just another dimension of intrigue. Rock lights are head-turning and make your build stand out. However, they can be functional as well. If visibility at night is especially important to you, they are another way to give you visibility and see the ground better below you.

How do You Install Rock Lights?

Installing rock lights is a popular upgrade option for truck owners due to its relative ease of installation. You don’t need advanced tools or skills to get started. First, park your truck in a safe place and turn it off. Then, disconnect the battery and install the rock light in your wheel well by drilling and screwing it in. Run the wire leads up to the battery, using the splitter provided in the rock light kit to connect all the leads into one connector. Repeat the process for each wheel well and adjust the lights as needed. After installation, reconnect the battery and turn the truck on to check if the lights are working as expected.

During installation, the most common issues are finding the best location for maximum light spread and cleanly routing wires to avoid a messy look. The ideal placement for rock lights is two per wheel well, positioned at 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock, which provides the best overall light spread with one standard kit.

Are Rock Lights Safe?

Short answer: yes, they are safe. They won’t light your truck on fire, and they won’t explode. There are no guarantees in life, but this we can say pretty confidently. As long as you aren’t driving with them on, the road you won’t have to worry about distracting others either if that is a safety concern for you.

Are Rock Lights Legal?

This brings us to our final question and the whole reason that this blog was made. Are they legal? Well, this will vary depending on the state that you live in. However, generally, there are a few main rules of thumb with rock lights:

-Don’t drive with them turned on on the road. (This can distract other drivers).

-Don’t use blue and red lights. (This can look like you are impersonating a cop).
