    Sooo you're just leave the Parking brake on? Lol
    Sometimes I want them off for stealth mode into the driveway. I remember a while back some cars you couldn't turn the headlights off at all. My friend had a 2000 or 2002 Camaro that did that. She worked for aerospace and they required that you turn off your headlights when you come up to the guard gate. She had a literally show them that she couldn't turn them off.

    I think it was when they were making them in Canadia.

    For me my neighbors bedrooms are right along my driveway. Sometimes I come home really late and I always leave early in the morning. Typically I don't turn on my headlights until I back into the street. When I come home late at night I always kill the lights before I pull in the driveway. Those Ambers do light up quite a bit of area when it's dark out. Also when I go camping I don't like to light up peoples campsite if I'm doing a late night run. I wait till I'm not facing any of them to hit the lights. Or if im running from the cops! Jk

    I guess it's all out the window once I get my dirty exhaust in the mail! But still I'd rather hear a nice V-8 than have my bedroom lit up with lights.

    Had a neighbor at my old house that had a dodge with a cummins. Thing was loud. Woke us up every time they started it or came home. One of the reasons we no longer live there. I would have taken lights shining in my bedroom any day over that exhaust.

    I alway kill my headlights when coming home late or leaving early from habit.

    Used to have the bedroom perpendicular to the driveway. At times I would leave for work at 4-5 in the morning or get home no earlier than midnight depending on the shift.

    The parking amber lights. Yes I want stealth mode I was waiting on someone at a particular parking lot and its 100 degrees at night in southern Louisiana. Anyway it looks like I'm sitting there waiting on a drug deal with my amber parking lights on.

    They are DRLs. I think you sitting in the truck in the middle of the night with no lights on would make it look more like you are waiting on a drug deal :rofl:

    My neighbor came over the week after I purchased my truck and looked at the exhaust (GM factory tip is 5") and asked me to keep the factory exhaust and muffler due to these reasons. I told him I planned on keeping the truck factory and new diesels do not have mufflers anymore. He was a little shocked.
