I’ve done a bit of work on my truck since my last update, and also have some new photos. The work done includes:

  • Added 4 strobes head to rear of truck, with strobe box in NEMA enclosure in bed.
  • Icom F5061 (VHF 50W) mobile radio in console
  • Three antenna mounts and antennae on roof - WiFi antenna, VHF mobile antenna and wideband scanner antenna. The installation and wiring was done by Ken’s Auto Electric of Midland Park, NJ (Ken is a great guy, and prices very reasonably).
