You're thinking in the wrong context, thefirebuilds: The idea is how far things are behind the taillights. Think at night, or coming up to a light. Something sticking out of a trunk or the back of a pickup tends to not have any "depth" to it, and is easy to run into. Trailers (AND THESE BOATTAILS) have their own lights in the back, which then will be a new reference point for the lady putting on makeup and talking on the cell phone behind you to use to stop by...
NO, you took what I said out of context. I already qualified what I said in regards to lights and tags:

"if any of this crap was true you wouldn't be able to pull a trailer. You got your lights, you got your tags"

Sorry if my language was too folksy to follow, I was in a Palin-ey mood I guess.
