    What is a true manufacturing company? Is it Code 3/Ecco?

    So you guys are willing to replace every single one of our 2100 bars? We've got like a 120 of them, let me know when the truck will be here.

    Open Dispute.

    Great post, couldn't have said it better myself. What we need to do is start another forum away from this one. Cut the adds in half and make it more of a resource and less of a profit generator. The owner needs to have pride in the hobby, not greed. I've never before been a part of a forum...

    ‘14 Ford Interceptor Sedan Headlight Flashers

    Funny I remembered this thread. I am being issued a 2016 PIS in the next week or two, and it does not have the PTW LEDs. I searched around and found a few, but not up for spending $300 on them. I ordered an HID kit for the car, since the OEM halogens suck and the OEM HID’s are stupid expensive...

    So FHP finally ditched Code3...

    Colorado State Patrol does it too. As if a full size Whelen Liberty II Duo wasn't bright enough, they added front and rear inner edges. You know, because the second brightest lightbar ever made just isn't good enough.

    Programming dual color Defender bar

    I believe you guys are both correct. But to be frank, I probably won't spend much time looking into it, as I got assigned a new car. If I can find the siren box easy enough maybe. The manuals say a lot about patterns/wires, but I wasn't sure if this one would be changed via wiring or...

    Programming dual color Defender bar

    Hey guys, I've got a 2018 Explorer PIU with, among other equipment, a dual color Defender bar. It has R/W and B/W to the front and sides, and R/A and B/A to the rear. It has dedicated takedowns and alleys that are not dual color. The car has a Z3 siren/control panel. As I understand it, I...

    NForce Interior Light Bar Sync with MPowers

    Yes, they can for sure, but I'm not exactly sure how to hook them up. I'd assume it's like you say.

    2015 Chevy 2500HD Install

    It's a good thing you've got all that auxiliary lighting, the Liberty is known for being dim, ineffective, with a crap footprint. You know, being the second brightest lightbar ever made and all. I think your plan looks ridiculous and whacker to the max. Ditch all the rear window lights, and...

    Is eLightbars dying out?

    The over-moderation goes with what you are saying, where there are so many categories that sifting through them is more of a pain than it is worth. And I don't want to waste time reading the FAQ or PM'ing a moderator when picking a category should be easy and common sense. LS1Tech has less...

    For Sale Whelen Legacy R/B WC 44'' lightbar

    Is it dual color with white front and amber rear? Or just R/B?

    Is eLightbars dying out?

    My 2 cents. First, the site is over-moderated. Seems every post I make gets moved or something of the like. Discourages me from posting at all. Second, the folks of the site are stuck in the 90s. I love a good Aerodynic just like anyways else, but let's face it, the amount of information on...

    Wanted WTB: CVPI upfit components (Push bumper, cage, console)

    Sweet, and they actually aren't terribly expensive and look good. I prefer the Setina pushbumpers to any other brand based on aesthetics alone, but these look nearly identical to the Setina. What is the difference in the fascia cut vs no-cut? Obviously one requires cutting lol, but is there...

    How can I tell if a Nforce lighthead is dual color?

    If you look closely you should be able to see the individual LEDs through the lenses when the bar is off. They'll be on the bottom of the reflectors, pointed up. If it is dual color there will be two different colored LEDs right next to each other. The white LED is a light yellow color, I'm not...

    Wanted WTB: CVPI upfit components (Push bumper, cage, console)

    Like the title says, upfitting a couple Crown Victorias for full-time sworn Law Enforcement. All equipment must be good/excellent condition. PayPal ready, will be paying via goods/services. I need at least 2 of everything. Setina or GoRhino push bumpers Half cages (No full cages) Consoles...

    Michigan State Police Beacons Are Awesome

    Our bars run right at $2000 (SoundOff nForce), and I can't quote the bar install price since that is built into the upfit of the car. But the bar isn't much harder to install than a beacon, it could very well be easier in fact. To supplement the beacon, they have to add 10 additional perimiter...

    Michigan State Police Beacons Are Awesome

    Most of those things are done automatically, and my Officers do utilize the TA, TD, and alley lights regularly. In fact, the only option that I rarely ever see them use is the rear cut. Probably smart considering the liability in it if they use it then stop on the interstate. The only price...

    Michigan State Police Beacons Are Awesome

    They takedown override? Alley override? Steady red with brakes? Integrate traffic controllers? Cut out sides with doors open? Have multiple functions for including steady? Have the option to only use 1 or 2 modules? They're extremely primitive for a $900 21t century light.

    2020 Interceptor Build Featuring the Eclipse Rocker Panels

    I'm torn on this build, but most of it is because of the customer specs, not your install. The front microns are useless. I would've gone with a bigger dual color light with a larger footprint, and gotten them with white. Integrate flashing white into them, R/W and B/W, and then the white could...

    SoundOff Configurator Software

    Not that I ever found, no. The only way I ever found was to upload it to the car to test, which was quite frustrating, especially when you're trouble shooting. I don't know about pattern drift either.

    And then somewhere along the line, the people realized when we authorize so much power in someone, we should require certain things. Things like further education requirements, written testing, physical agility standards, medical screenings, background investigations, hair follicle drug tests...

    This gonna be fun (2020 F150) updated with specs and ideas

    Still something that's better served with amber. I mean, it's cool if they want to. It just opens the door for ambushes, abuse of authority/impersonation, and liability with no benefit.

    I get that. But why would they ever need to run code? A dog attacking? I wouldn't dare run code 3 for a vicious dog.

    Your animal control runs code responses? God I'd love to see the lawsuit from the first time they stack up a car.

    This gonna be fun (2020 F150) updated with specs and ideas

    I mean, I get that lights show who's who in the world, but it's animal control. There should never be a circumstance in which this vehicle is a traffic hazard. Put a couple ions or mpower modules in the back window wired with the emergency flashers and call it more than adequate. Huh? The 4.6...

    I'm not surprised. A single $2500 purchase for one car, and an end-user (A high maintenance one at that), doing the purchasing/install? No offense man, but it's no surprise the budget companies were the only ones who'd talk to you.
