    Input on install in 2005 Tahoe fire POV

    Cobra 2x: Grill, mounted center. Feniex T3: All 8 upper windshield, 4 each side Avenger Duals: Rear window, high LINZ6: Side/intersection I'd also add a good HLF and TLF.

    Upper Glass Traffic Arrow for Charger

    Have you considered just getting a dual color nForce Traffic Adviser? Mount it top or bottom, then have it do whatever you want, all 3 colors for warning, Amber for TA, whatever you want. I feel like both upper and lowers would significantly limit rear visibility in a car that already sucks in...

    New ride!!! 2011 Escape Upfit

    Ya if that was my switch box my up-fitter would be getting it back with a fucking screwdriver jammed into every button.

    2019 Tahoe SSV

    I'm not a fan of Tahoe's for LE, but for Fire I think they're perfect. Here's a classic "I want it to look like a cop car" whacker though. Not your fault, but stupid nonetheless.

    Documents for older Whelen Edge Ultra Freedom

    The 13762 was exactly what I was looking for, and should mostly apply to my bar. However, it appears as if my bar may be a custom order/built bar. I know it was originally from Denver PD, and they used exclusively this bar for many years (And they still do). Anyways, the modules per the...

    Documents for older Whelen Edge Ultra Freedom

    Hey guys, I have an 08 Crown Vic which was originally equipped with a Whelen Edge Ultra Freedom bar when it was upfitted. So it's an older bar, halogen takedowns and alleys but otherwise LED. I'd like to reprogram flash patterns and syncs, can anyone forward me to the wiring diagrams on the...

    CHP assembly line

    You're absolutely right about the economy increase. And I know they don't care about petty things like Officer comfort, but overhead bars, moreso the big ones, are incredibly loud, and they shake at speed. They are also more expensive than a similarly equipped interior setup (Though obviously...

    CHP assembly line

    I agree. They're probably so big that the guy making the decisions either hasn't ever driven a cop car, or surely hasn't driven one in a decade or two. The Legacy would be a nice upgrade.

    CHP assembly line

    Carbide is decent, and they use it to its capability, but it isn't nearly as advanced as BluPrint. The amount of time they've been with a company in my opinion shouldn't have anything to do with the choice to stay with that company. Companies are constantly innovating, and we should be...

    CHP assembly line

    They aren't terrible, I've seen worse of course, but a few qualms I have is they should be going to SOS for the BluPrint system, the advantages it offers are worth the cost. And I'm not even a huge fan of the nForce light bar, but the system as a whole is top notch. I also don't like the...

    CHP assembly line

    I love the CHP, but their upfits are crap. Not surprising since they're done in house. I know I paid a good $5,000 more for my recent builds. But I got a bargain at twice the price for the quality and consistency I got.

    Reasonable Cost?

    No that's for a full upfit with equipment :)

    Reasonable Cost?

    $1600? Shit mine are closer to $16,000!

    Caprice PPV and Impala: What Happens After 2017?

    The Gen 10 Impala will not be a consideration for us, we will not buy a FWD. Both of our Impalas needed transmissions and axles, one at 92,000 miles, the other at 108. If we got the Charger, it'd be a Hemi AWD, but the problems have been throughout the car. Fuel pumps, suspension rebuilds...

    Caprice PPV and Impala: What Happens After 2017?

    I work for a small, 5 person department on an Interstate. We recently bought new cars. We currently have 2011 Impalas (2), a 2010 Charger, and 2008 CVPI's (2). The Impalas are awful. Small, not terribly reliable, hurting on performance, and small. The Charger has been a reliability nightmare...
