I have not done it but I heard it was illegal to remove the third brake light. Am I wrong?

I think it depends on yoru local laws. But in Oklahoma I have asked about it and i was told its not illegal as long as the back to lights work. I asked caus ei plan to shave mine and mines doesn't work when you hit the brakes it only works as a cargo light.

It is very illegal! I asked my uncle, who's a Highway Patrol Officer. I looked for a kit forever and never found one. It's a vehicle requirement, but my dad's 92 silverado didnt have 1 from the factory...

Well if its required couldnt you just shave it and put in some smooth led strips or something. like some people put in the roll pans! i think like a foot long strip would look pretty nice instead of that huge lens. :imo might loose cargo light but who uses that thing anyways.

well i dont have the skills to put a led in nor make my own plate, just wondering if they had a kit, and i cant afford to spend alotta money on it with a baby on the way, the top has a dent in it thought i could do some of that myself and when it rains it leaks into my cab i really dont care if its illegal or not tho because i can always tell them it came from the factory that way after i got it painted because my old truck didnt have one either but it was a 90
