First WK used for emergency response?????
 
Here are some pics of my jeep with the current mods. I have not done much yet but iv got a few things on it. Main mods are the 7 inch GPS used as a rear view camera, iv got it set up so when the car drops into reverse the camera turns on and the gps auto switches to its AV input.
I also have 3 Axitech Hawk2 LED dash lights in the Jeep, they are used for responding to emergency calls. Im a member of the local fire department and the lights have been awesome so far for moving traffic. Give me your opinions guys! Ill be putting up a video as soon as it uploads which is taking awhile.
The latest thing I did was pick up four new tires, I went with 255/70/17 because the stock tires are crazy small and look stupid, plus mine were shot and driving fast in snow to fire calls was getting hairy. The new ones are great and have been awesome in snow so far. On to the pics!

The next two are a scanner I have in the truck for use on calls, I also have a portable walkie that we all use for communication, same thing the police use all over the country, the scanner is for monitoring because I can listen to all incoming units not just our department. And the second pic is the switches for the lights in their temporary spots, soon to be relocated.

Consider mounting the scanner to the left of the steering wheel in the pocket. I have a yeasu 8800 Multiband radio. Also consider these emergency lights as they are tiny and very bright, they can be mounted anywhere like behind the rear view mirror, back window, rear side windows and behind the grill. They use less power because they are LED. http://www.911ep.com/products/products.asp

I figured I wasnt the first, hence the question haha. The scanner I have wont fit in that spot, and I use it for my wallet anyway. I dont think im gonna do anymore lights its pretty much perfect how it is, I might do two more smaller ones in the rear quarter windows for some lighting to the sides.

About 20 mins before I can put the video up, im sitting here waiting guys! haha I love that SRT8 in the video but thats two much for our local laws. We cant even have strobes in our headlight or taillights.

First thing I would do is flush mount a new set of rocker switches somewhere in or under the dash for your strobes.
Depending on your skill level maybe work them into your "switch blanks" like the author of this thread http://www.jeepgarage.org/showthread...ighlight=radar

there is a black srt8 'nathan is the owner. we all saw it xmastime 2009 NYC meet. Strobes, scanners, etc.

one BIG difference is ALL his stuff was inside the lights and professionally done.
