We are going to be obtaining a crash truck (rescue body on a 1 ton chassis), and converting it to a service truck. One of the things I want to do, is to stripe it on the back with a chevron pattern, and put a traffic advisor back there to use it on the interstate, etc, to help slow and divert traffic.


I have never been impressed with the looks or effectiveness of the advisors that install on lightbars or rear decks. I want a nice, big ass amber arrow that points left or right.


Who makes those? Does anyone here have one for sale? I don't care if it's LED or halogen, as long as it works. I will take photos of the truck and post here if that helps.

Never mind. I went and took a closer look at the truck this morning. There is no room at all on the back of the box. The only thing that will work is a strip across the rear mounted on the roof.


dammit


Oh well. I still want to put the chevron on the back.
