Remove blinker reflector/use amber bulbs?

Have a question for you guys that have had the headlights apart, can you remove the amber lens/reflector and use an amber bulb in it's place?

I am going to get clear lenses for my mirrors and I would like to "clear" the headlights (I prefer clear over smoked, at least on my silver truck).

Sure why not, if it has the same resistance its the same bulb, truck doesn't know what color the lense or bulb is.

Or were you talking about legally? If so what state?

I know the bulb will work, I was wondering about the reflector lens, is it removable, and is there just a standard chrome housing behind it?

It is removable, but I believe if left off the headlight there will be a big ugly gap that it normally covers. I have a headlight apart in my garage at home, I'll try to get you a pic today. I spray painted mine black to cover the ugly yellow. I bought a strip of LED's to put on there in place of the single bulb that was in there.

Ok thanks, I will have to see if I can figure something out if that is the case, I really want all clear ones
