Looks awesome man! I'm jealous. I'm a volunteer firefighter in a rural district in MO. Are yall a POV department or do yall have trucks and you're allowed to respond POV? My Dak is going to get lights and a siren in May but I am planning on doing something similar to yours. Only difference because of the brush seasons here my Dak might get some modification into a light duty brush truck: 30-50 gallon tank & pump, 2 blowers and 2 rakes. If you got any advice on gear for trucks or just want to chat about calls and apparatuses I'm always curious to see what other departments do and chat with fellas.

the rig was hauling off old tires out of a yard and completely missed the driveway and found a muddy ditch. Blacknight, our department allows POV to station, but im actually an officer so I can POV direct to scene. We are a small department with only a light duty rescue \ brush truck, and a tanker.

I noticed you went from stock to HID Halo to clear corner. Didn't like the HID pattern or how they looked on the truck?

They are still HID, i didnt like the look of the eagle eye halos... i thought they looked like bug eyes...too much goin on for me so i ditched em... i got em if anyone wants them...cover shipping and they are yours...

our department has 4 trucks and a boat, but two of the trucks are out of service, one with a blown motor and the other, which we actually worked on tonight needs batteries and a ton of small things, been sittin for a couple of years...
