offroad light laws?

Im going to be buying offroad lights soon. What are the laws for offroad lights?
Do they have to be covered when on the road? Im putting them on my bumper light bar.. I know people use the guards so they dont shatter some lenses but is it the law to have them covered.. IM in PA if that matters? I personally think the guards clutter up the front end of trucks. Stone guards (cages) look better to me. but none at all would be best.

Thanks.

I'm not sure how it matters from state to state BUT from everything I've heard you are allowed 4 running lights (like 2 headlamps and 2 fogs or whatever you got) Along with the height laws. I have also heard that if they are either more than the heads and fogs, and/or over the height limit then they have to be covered.


But as far as I'm concerned, TYPICALLY cops are like bees, if you don't bother them they don't bother you. Lol!

im guessin as long as you dont have them on blinding everybody, youll be left alone. i caught some bagger kid, on a military installation at that, trying to steal my KCs. so if you got some expensive lights, i suggest finding some way to secure them, too.

Im pretty positive Ohio has to have offroad lights covered. I never cover mine and have never been bothered about it.
