FALCONER, N.Y. — Truck-Lite, a global manufacturer and provider of heavy-duty lighting and visibility systems, has added the 44 Series Stop/Turn/Tail & Back-up Combination Lamp to its current 44 Series offerings.

Performing the functions of two lamps in one unit, the 44 Series S/T/T & BU is available in flange or grommet mounts, the company said in a news release.

The lamp also features a hardwired connector for tight-packaging applications, and three-position LED Fit 'N Forget AMP connectors that are compatible with existing connection points on the vehicle harness.

Truck-Lite’s new, signature-style 4-inch combination lamp meets or exceeds all FMVSS 108 requirements when properly installed, even on vehicles over 80 inches wide.

The stop function offers the same appearance and performance on the market now, and its distinct back-up feature provides a clear indication of the white reverse signal without impairing the effectiveness of the stop/turn/tail lamp when both are illuminated.

In addition to its variety of mounting options, the lamp fits into standard 4-inch round mounting holes, making retrofitting even more convenient.

Furthermore, just one of the new 44 Series combination lamps will meet the FMVSS requirements for back-up function, which can save costs on the OEM level by eliminating the need to drill additional mounting holes.

As a result, the newest member of the 44 Series family economically and safely serves the purpose of systems that typically require more lamps.

Truck-Lite's newest combination lamp can be ordered using the following custom part numbers: 44550R, 44551R and 44556R.

The new 44 Series S/T/T & BU is manufactured in the United States and is backed by Truck-Lite's limited lifetime warranty.
