Clearance Lights For 76 Argosy

Does anyone know of a source for quality clearance lights? I have replaced a few of them with lights from Tractor Supply etc. but the lenses seem to be of poor quality. Thay crack or exhibit a shattered appearance in short time. Where can I get quality lights? The original ones lasted almost 30 years.Thanks, George.

They sell direct visually identical clearance lights for your Argosy, about $6 per fixture. They are brighter than incandecent, lower power draw, and will probably last another 30 years without having to replace any burned-out bulbs.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Timely post. I lost one of my front corner clearance light lens on the last trip

I'm think now would be the time to put in some LED marker lights if the price has dropped to something reasonable.

Also, I was wondering about the ability (and legality) of having flashing clearance markers for certain situations. I was thinking about this while driving over the mountains this weekend and then a little later I saw a semi hauling a big piece of earth moving equipment that had exactly that. It had high mount yellow LED clearance lights that flashed like an emergency vehicle. He was traveling at about the same speed that I fall back to on the big grades.


Ooo, thanks for the link Terry. I'll report back on what I end up with.
