Frequently Asked Questions Ask APW
Are smoked or tinted tail lights illegal?
Answer: It depends on the state where the vehicle is registered. In California, for example, tail lights should only be red in color and visible within 1,000 feet from the rear, while in Wisconsin, tail lights should be visible for only 500 feet to the rear. So before purchasing a tinted or smoked tail light or before modifying the existing ones in your Dodge Durango, make sure to check with local laws first to avoid getting a ticket and dealing with other legal problems later on.
How long do tail lights of a Dodge Durango last before needing replacement?
Answer: The tail light assembly of the Dodge Durango is made of heavy-duty plastic and metal, and it normally does not need replacement unless damaged. A standard Dodge Durango tail light bulb, however, lasts for around 1,500 hours before it needs replacing. Aftermarket tail lights such as LED tail lights can last much longer.
What are the benefits of switching to a tail light with an LED bulb?
Answer: A lot of aftermarket Dodge Durango tail lights come with LEDs instead of the conventional bulbs. And while they are far more expensive than other tail light options in the market today, LED tail lights do have their advantages. Their first major benefit is that they consume far less power to work. What's more, LEDs give off light in a specific direction, in contrast to standard tail light bulbs that waste energy by emitting light in all directions. Another big advantage of using LED tail lights is that they last far longer. A high-power LED can usually provide 35,000 to 50,000 hours worth of light before needing replacement. And unlike light bulbs that immediately stop working once they burn out, worn-out LEDs fade slowly, making them a safer choice for people who frequently drive at night or in other low-light conditions.
