Looks great. I just wish the 4 Grill ions were synced to flash all 4 red —> all 4 clear (much larger footprint and more eye catching IMO).

The stealth graphics look cool on the black tahoe, but I think it’s silly to have ghost graphics on Fire & OEM vehicles. I know it’s ultimately the customer’s call (not the installers fault); I just don’t see the need for stealth graphics on anything other than slicktop LE vehicles that are trying to avoid standing out too much (ie DUI enforcement)

I LOVE the Tahoe platform. Sure, it's huge and boxy, but that's exactly what I'd be looking for. It's got the power plant to back it up and plenty of room for equipment. Only thing I don't like is the split pattern on those M4s (M6s?) in the fog light area... Sure, more lighting from each head, but you're also losing half of your warning power. Granted, down low, that doesn't really matter, but that's just my preference. Everything else looks fantastic, including the Tracers and that rear inner edge.

Which of those two interior bars is using your CANPort on the HHS? The more I think about it, the more I realize it doesn't really matter, but I'm curious, considering you have two WeCan capable units.

Great install!

This is the director/chief unit. Mostly on scene lighting with very little response. This is the first new admin vehicle in a long time and will be handed down in later years.
The M4s are not able to sync without an external flasher so thats the best pattern to look right.
Both inner edges are using the CANPort. just build two in the software

How does that work if there's only one WECAN port on the controller?

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.

Not really sure what your trying to say. But never less everyone has there opinion.

Don't really know what he's talking about with the "Tahoes not for police" stuff, but I do see how the customer tried to make it look police-like.

Ghost graphics on a vehicle with a push bar is bad enough, but on a fire/ems vehicle? I don't understand it. They aren't blending in with anyone with that push bar, and I've never understood why fire/ems feels the need to blend in anyway.

Agreed. Most of the Officers i know hate the PIU, but nowhere near as much as the PIS or the Charger Pursuit. The ones that dont hate the PIS or Charger are about 5'4, and <140lbs. lol

IMO, The only thing keeping officers in the PI models is the price tag...when you're Beating the competition on state bid by $7-10k, you're gonna move more units...

For the average local or state cop, the Tahoe is too big, too truck like, too slow, and from an administrative standpoint, too expensive. I like the PIU personally. Size of an SUV, driving characteristics of a car, price that's cheaper than the competition even with the turbo motor.
