I dont understand.. they need to cut officers, but yet they buy new vehicles for accident reconstruction? why cant they use normal tahoes? it just kinda ticks me off.. maybe i just dont understand the theory behind it...

Why no beacon on top? Same reason as no fin?
I would assume so.

Tahoe's CVPI's are the only ones that have beacons( that I am aware of ).
I've seen older vehicles with beacons, Like Ford Areostar van, and a Dodge Caravan with beacons(I have pic's somewhere from post 24)


I thought i saw a few chargers with them? atleast pictures of them.

They can't from the lack of roof supports or something from what I read.

For a state that claims to be in a state of being bankrupt, people would be surprised


at the new equipment that the state is purchasing.The mighty leaders in Lansing


are wanting to close more prisons, which means turning more convicts back out into


the streets, saving money. But then again you have to be from Michigan to understand


the spending here and the wasting of the tax payers money so the friends of people


in Lansing can make some money and acourse get there pockets lined with some of that


money. Alot of the wasteful spending for vehicles, equipment is being spend locally.

That's what I heard also. I think it's baloney, since an upfitter could easily install a support for the light, and with the proper LED retrofit, could make the entire assembly lighter.


I know a lot of people make fun of the Spitfire, but I think it's a very unique and effective piece of warning equipment. :cry:

My guess would be bomb squad. I've seen a LOT of new bomb squad vehicles rolling around recently including a brand new Chevy Kodiak 5500 Diesel command truck with 18' walk-in box and a 24' fully enclosed trailer being towed behind it. They drive this thing around everywhere. I saw it roll into the Lansing Heart and Cardiovascular center. 1 guy got out of it, walked inside and came back out am hour later. Got in the truck, started it up, sat there on his cell phone for 15 minutes before finally pulling out. Something tells me a normal sized vehicle would have sufficed instead of taking that rig to a personal doctor's appointment.... :mad:

How did you get the TIR 6 mounted in the upper part of the grill. I tried and tried to mount some TIR6's in the upper part of my Tahoe and couldnt get then to work out. Any advice?
