      I think as long as they're not forward facing the cops won't mess with you. But technically red and blue underbody LED's are illegal in most states. It just depends on how hard they want to enforce them. Green are off limits too if you live near a state park.

As used in this subsection, the term "red light" shall also mean any forward facing red light installed on a vehicle after initial manufacture of the vehicle.

            (12) A vehicle operated by any county fire marshal, assistant fire marshal, or emergency management coordinator in the performance of his duties, regardless of whether or not the county owns the vehicle;
            (13) A light required by the Federal Highway Administration;

            (1) Is not (i) being installed on, held in inventory for the purpose of being installed on, or held in inventory for the purpose of sale for installation on a vehicle on which it may be lawfully operated or (ii) installed on a vehicle which is used solely for the purpose of demonstrating the blue light for sale to law enforcement personnel;
            (1a) Is designed for use by an emergency vehicle, or is similar in appearance to a blue light designed for use by an emergency vehicle; and
            (2) Can be operated by use of the vehicle's battery, the vehicle's electrical system, or a dry cell battery.
            (d) Repealed by Session Laws 1999‑249, s. 1.
