If I put lights on it....would it not be considered like a trailer?I wonder...
Is the truck bed extender part of the truck, and you can go up to four feet past it without a flag?
What if the extender has a set of lights you plug into your trailer connector?
Logsplitters and portable air compressor are classified as mobile equipment and therefore exempt from license plates and lights,etc at least in some states. Just something to keep in mind that the tailgate extender like is being discussed could also be a violations for obstructed license plate.If I put lights on it....would it not be considered like a trailer?
I know the red-flag law I read mentioned lights if at night. I wonder if lights overrule the flag and make it not required?
Then I wonder about other type of things towed that do NOT have lights (weather they are required I dont know). But like logsplitters? Or the towable air compressors? I never see them with lights and they are definitely more than 4' long
