  • We got these a week ago. But we are going to Dodge Nitros come '08. Wonder if they will have a Hemi!

    • Two things.
      First- Nice looking ride. Thanks for posting the photo.
      Second- Thanks for finding this thread and adding to it instead of starting a new thread on this topic.

        No the Nitros don't have hemis, they are gas hogs, and ours is cursed.

        We had it for less then a month when a drunk chick pulled out of the bar across the parking lot from our office and slammed into it broadside....in reverse....going an estimated 20-30 mph.

        Insurance did not total it. It was in the shop for about 3 months. Day after we get it back, our GM and Ops Manager were going to a client visit and at 2 separate red lights people got out of their vehicles to tell the Ops Manager that the back right wheel was wobbling so bad that it looked like it was going to fall off. So it went back IN the shop for another 2 weeks. We got it back last Friday and whoa and behold we get a recall notice in the mail for some computer problem that apparently will shut the vehicle completely down.

        So Ops Manager schedules to get it fixed tomorrow. Today he goes out to make a sales call and 10 minutes out of the office and gets into an accident with it!

        This is a retired Pennsylvania cop, who has been involved in pursuits, been driving for many years and has never had an accident in his life!

        I tell you that dang thing is cursed! Nope I'll stick with the Ranger.

        BTW Glad to see that you got the Amber/Green lights....bad thing is in the pic they almost look like Red/Blue.

        • At first glanc, they did look red and blue. I hope nobody's going to complain, but even if they do, it'll take at least 2 years to change the law back.

          Its also heartwarming to see a G4S branch actually order a green cover, even if it is for an ancient Streethawk.

            I have to admit I was surprised when I saw them all lined up at the office. Jeeps! And the lights too. We have had compliments from few Troopers on the Jeeps. And the lights too during a few operations on the interstate. They say it's nice to be able to tell the difference between us and a tow truck. As for the law. Who knows maybe they will leave it alone. Oh, yea. I did drop a hint about the new LED look at the division office. I guess we are lucky to have got the green covers and the Jeeps as it is.

            Now. If they would just give us nines, an office and a pension. Oh, yea I know that's pusing it.

            • Well, the green is a value added service, since people can tell its actually security now.

              • Ford Escapes where I'm at. Just about perfect for what we do to be honest; though I do wish that we had a more durable interior.

                  • Imagine, if you will

                    the ugliest shade of yellow on earth, painted on a ragged out fleet of Nissan Frontier pick-ups. All with 5-spd. stick trannies. Also included in this package is the crappy yellow/amber unknown brand lightbar that works when it feels like it (ever heard the one about hell freezing over?) I would rather walk my patrol route...

                          Wackenhut in Florida is still issuing the .38 caliber or .357 caliber revolver with .38 Special ammunition. Security recently was authorized to carry 9mm semi-autos without the coveted special waiver.

                              Thanks. Why is Florida so restrictive on S/O's?

                              • I could dream

                                The companies I did patrol work in between other things used the equivalent of a Geo Metro (Daihatsu Charade) with a 1.3 litre engine or Suzuki Vitara mini 4wd with a 1.6 litre engine. With fuel at $4.00 US a gallon - running costs are very important.

                                My 2 patrols I had were about $20kUS each when kitted out with signage and were 4 door midsizes and the person who bought them off me has them on their 3rd engines now but can't complain about the reliability. For the aussies they were Nissan Pulsars.
