This is the trim panel that hides the SS2000 brain and the power supply for the rear strobes, never remembered to take a picture of the units secured in there...

Is this your POV or patrol vehicle?

Looks very good and really like the WL39


POV. Maybe some day I'll work for a department that has enough funds to have something like that. Anything 4x4 would be nice in these Iowa winters!

Great job. I love that idea with taking the cross bar off of the roof and putting that light in it's place. Very nice. :D

Yeah, good work, nice and low profile.


The SlimLighter looks odd among all the Axixtech linear LEDs though.

Nice Job! I like the idea of a Slicktop, That isn't truly a slicktop but looks like one until the lights are activated. :D

What percentage is the tint and how well do the linear heads punch through it?

The slimlighter looks strange there but over all great job!

It's factory tint, I'll meter it tonight and let you know. A factory non-tinted "modern" window is only 70% light transmission though, so the number might seem high. The linears punch through it just fine though, seems like the closer they are to the window the better they work.

What about adding a rear WL 39 to match the front one? Very nice...Have you ever thought of mounting your side Xtreme9 to the forward headliner of the rear passenger windows on the doors? This will allow you to still conceal them, but roll down the window for maximum output...just an idea.

I actually have a TD39 sitting around, but I'm trying to sell it. I kinda figure for as much as I actually have an opportunity to use the lights, the amount I have now is probably more than I need.


I thought about putting the Xtreme's somewhere else but I wanted to keep everything "family friendly", I didn't want any equipment where it was in the way or easily messed with by passengers (ie; kid)

Sorry guys I didn't see the rest of the responses, I just pulled up the thread for someone and saw them. I hit a deer at 60 in February and it was totalled. (We have huge deer here)
