"Up-High" Tail Lights On Truck Stay Out Of The Mud
Barry Malme of Shelly, Minn., uses his White triple-axle truck to haul beets and grain. The truck often has to drive through wet, muddy fields which poses a problem mud from the rear wheels often covers the truck's tail lights. To solve the problem, he mounted an extra pair of tail lights 5 ft. up from the original ones.
  "They're highly visible and really make a difference in wet, muddy conditions," says Malme, who gives credit for the idea to custom hauler J.J. Alsop of Fargo, N. Dak. Alsop mounted the add-on tail lights while setting up the truck with a new 20-ft. long, 6-ft. high box. He had the box manufacturer weld an angle iron bracket onto each side of the box and mounted the lights in them. He then ran electric wires up from the existing tail lights to the elevated ones.
  "I bought the tail lights at an auto parts store for $50. At night the two sets of lights look like a smiley face," notes Malme.
