Fleetcomm, myself, and the guys at our garage were curious as to what my 2012 Charger would look like with some old school lights "placed" on the car. These were never installed.My favorite is the CJ184.DSC00025.jpg

I like the CJ and the Visibar. I think they are both somewhat timeless, but i might be biased.....LOL

Most of the pictures with the Twinsonic have already been posted with the exception of the rear shot.

That is a SERIOUSLY cool concept!!! Slick looking Charger too. If they ever want to get rid of that Whelen 3302, I'm looking for one just like that! :D ;) :thumbsup: :hail:

the CJ i purchased from John Dorgan back in 1999,He did an excellent job on it too!! It has a NOS dome compliments of Pinball Charlie.

That would be great if you could mount the CJ . Show the Sheriff a pic ,who knows ,He may go for it, maybe hint that it would be a great recruitment tool. That would be the best looking cruiser in Tenn.

I thought about approaching the Sheriff with a 184H for my new Impala, instead of the standard Liberty. However, I didn't, as we are an accredited Agency, and figured they wouldn't deviate from the uniformity.

Makes me think of the chase scene at the end of the first Smokey and the Bandit movie, There were lots of cars with blue CJs on them in that scene.

They all look great and although the Cj184 looks excellent, i must say that the Blue Whelen Crossbar looks extra sharp and stands out a little more!! Thanks for sharing, awesome project!! :D :D:D:yes: :yes: :yes: :goodpost:

A speaker/light, light bar with speaker, or a rack with two beacons and a speaker all look good on the Charger. The car is certainly big enough to take a full length light bar.


What I like most is that the speaker is back on the roof, where it should be. The siren sound carries much better with a roof mounted speaker.

If not the Vader... the CJ looks right at home. I'd love to see a light output comparison between that and a gen 3 LED bar in split fail mode..... bet the CJ wins...

I'm not sure how I feel about the OSHA “Permissible Noise Exposure" studies and policies that cause people to avoid roof mounting sirens... it's funny how roof mounted airhorns were"fine" for a few years after roof mounted sirens... intermittent vs. constant was the reasoning there I believe. I'm a big fan of large bumper mounted speakers personally, but I bet we agree that burying a speaker inside the vehicle is the real enemy here. Get that speaker out and obstruction free.

Love the CJ on that car! Part of me wishes that the single dome on the roof would somehow come back. It couldn't be much less effective than some of the stuff running around now. I even like Michigan and their setup.
