I would say that the rear turn signals could be either orange or red. I have a jeep wrangler and the rear tail lamps are the turn signals. There is no orange in them at all. They are street legal in every city and state. Just as long as they blink I think you are okay.

i wouldnt call it profit but yeah its not free. and dont take this the wrong way but if you are going to do it on your own you can figure it out yourself. good luck tho. seriously. if u get it done right it looks awsome.

Re: what color do my rear turn signals need to be?

federal law says that they must be either orange or amber in color. If they are on the front they must be opereational as both running lights and blinkers. They must be orange or amber in color. The rear is a little different. They can be orange or amber in color but can only work when the blinker is on. you can use red on the rear but it must function as a brake light as well and still blink.

When these types of signals are installed, do they always blink that fast or is there a way to adjust them
