Those fancy lights will be very useful off road.
Nice job!

Holy fuck batman.  You invested a lot of $$$ into those lights and that bumper, I looked into them in the past.  Looks amazing though, enjoy.  I hope I get to see it in person one day.

For off road ok... I have seen a trucker place one vertical behind his doors to blind other drivers. Very obnoxious and dangerous.
These lights are like the vollie FD or Ambulance member who has to have the latest buff equipment.
The front license plate missing could be an issue with PD.

I recently purchased a Dodge Charger (which looks so much better without the front plate) and the dealer advised me that I should be ok with LE so long as I had the plate with me (in the trunk).

 

So far, so good.

If you park on the street your charger could get a ticket without the plate. you probably wont though.  My last car didnt have the plate for 4 years with no problem. I think that if anyone looks at that truck they would be so confused by whats going on, they wont notice the missing front plate.

I just want to add that the blacked out grill looks like the portal where your truck eats lesser trucks.

If you have a NY registration it's a good chance you will get stopped by the Police.
Dealers also sell aftermarket tint. Those front license plates missing gave probable cause to stop. Sometimes the driver didn't know his plate was off the front and it was considering a lost/stolen plate.

NY State requires a front plate. It's against NY state law to have a vehicle on a public road (parked or moving) without a front and rear plate. You typically WILL NOT get ticketed when parked however villages LOVE ticketing parked vehicles without front plates. I have not had any issues but I do keep my plate with me and I am willing to pay the fine if I get ticketed. I have it on a magnetic holder so IF i do get pulled over and ticketed OR the cop asks me to put it on, I will oblige. Until that happens i'm keeping the plate off (I do throw it on from time to time though).

 

Second, as stated I also HATE when I see folks driving around with their LED light bars on. NO REASON for it unless it's an amber (Yellowish) bar shooting down (fogs). I hate seeing trucks that have an LED bar on in bad weather or what not when it's not needed. White light + snow/rain/fog doesn't do a THING and actually hurts the driver. This is an old photo (yeah it's a week old), new photo below. This shows my new 40" Curved bar with yellows/ambers on the outter portions which are good for bad weather. It's on 2 switches so 1 switch does ambers (yellows) and the 2nd switch does the white. The white is a spot light so it's designed to shoot down the road.

 

NONE OF these lights really serve ANY purpose (except the amber/yellows) on a public road for typical driving. The side lights are great when I need lighting in a very dark area (unloading/loading at night).

 

My 2nd job is running a company that sells LED lights for vehicles, so this is all honesty for demo purposes so I can show customers various lighting setups.

 

Thanks for the kudos and I agree with a lot of what you all said. If you're going to install stuff, there's a time/place for it's use. A truck like this will never be lit up on a public highway (no point) and MOST of it, as i said, is to sell stuff when I do shows

I would install an LED light bar on my pickup for upstate. You know any dealers who you recommend.
