Default New from NC

I have an 07 Screamin Yellow 4x4 auto that I use for my daily driver. I used to escort oversize loads so I have it decked out with some lights. I'm looking to swap out the 60/40 seats and put in some buckets and a center console so I can re-arrange my electronics better.

Some things I've done to it, I took my jump seats out and where the passenger side jump seat was at and I have my strobe power supplies that run my front strobes and rear when I hook them up. Where my driver side jump seat was at, this area has all my power connections. I modified the cheap plastic tray that sits under the radio area to house my switches for my lights. So far the truck has been great. I just wish I would have gotten the 4dr version when I bought it new in Dec. 06.

I'm from the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area, been back here for 5 yrs now. Thanks to everyone for the great knowledge that has been supplied, you can't ever learn enough about your vehicles.

Here's some pics of the truck.

Picture of the front with the expanded metal grille I made to replace my chrome plastic grille. I didn't want to ruin the nice chrome one and I needed a place to mount my front strobes.






The rear of the truck. The antenna mounted to the truck box is my cell antenna. Sometimes when escorting oversize loads you get out in the middle of nowhere like when putting up wind towers.

The brackets on the bottom of the bumper on the outer corners are ones I made to hold some flags. In Wisconsin you are supposed to have flags at each corner of the escort vehicle.
