    GTR LED ULTRA SERIES....Will it melt what it touches?

    Cannot seem to find the answer to this......will it melt wires or the rubber that the heatsink is touching? I cannot get the entire bulb, wiring, and ballast inside the housing so I instead have the rubber covering directly cutout around the fan on the back of the led bulb and have a wire...

    Pursuit mode

    Since you were able to get it to activate it leads me to believe it has everything to do with "learning the new driver". I wonder if ford somehow reset the module controlling the system therefore restarting the "learning the new driver" causing it to not activate as much due to not being pushed...

    Unknown Module and Antenna Connectors

    All depends on who wires it I suppose but from what I have seen, they all had a hole drilled on the roof allowing a 1/2 inch or so cable to connect to the light-bar. A lot of smaller departments pay third party companies to do all the wiring so if you have any way of finding out what department...

    Why do Departments select the model they do?

    I wish I could say I was surprised to hear a department is choosing a vehicle off of looks....... I can only speak for my department but I guess more power to them for being able to pick a vehicle strictly for looks lol

    Overall Interceptor Reliability

    I am glad to hear it is working out for you! In regards to the vehicle swapping, I suppose it all depends on what the department does.

    Why do Departments select the model they do?

    Vehicles are selected for various reasons.....price being a huge one however other aspects matter as well. The department I am at is no longer ordering explorers because the newer ones are now being built with an aluminum frame which limits the ability to use the vehicles the way we want. Other...

    Overall Interceptor Reliability

    Coming from an Officer that uses these before you get them.....DO NOT BUY ONE. They are abused in ways you would not even imagine. There is a reason why many agencies now lease vehicles and get rid of them after two years of use. The only exception would be if you got a school resource...

    Pursuit mode

    The way I have been taught as well as experienced using pursuit mode at adapts to how it is driven. It is hard to explain but when we push the cars at work, its done in ways you would never do to your own vehicle and will adapt to that driver over time. Enough time may have passed...

    Unknown Module and Antenna Connectors

    The wire going up the C pillar was probably not for the lightbars (or at least that is not how my department has theirs wired). It was probably for the equipment kept in the trunk (internet connection, GPS, radio systems, etc). As for the black box.....could be anything including a part of...

    Auxbeam 50" curved for Explorer 11-16, what bracket?

    Personally I would try and order some cheap ones off of ebay and give them a shot. Depending on where you were looking to mount it exactly, it might even be worth looking into luggage rack mounts that you can retrofit for the bar. Let us know what you end up getting to work! I have been...

    LED Headlights

    Just throwing this out there and I know it will not sit well with many but numerous studies have been done that are used in court which have come to the conclusion that you actually do not get any improvement in what you see when comparing hid vs led vs halogen....... I put leds in my...

    "Deleted" SMS on the phone still show up in the car :)

    This is just another reason why I refuse to connect my phone to my car lol I imagine you would have to delete the phone profile? Even then, nothing is ever truly deleted! I know this was not much help but I figured I would give you a reply after no one else seemed to have any information.

    Installed aftermarket hitch

    Led wiring question

    Where or what would be the best way to wire in two single leds located on the dash so that they turn on/off with the stock light dimmer? I snagged a wire tap but figured id ask on here for any better ideas.
