This build is a little unique! It certainly is not unusual to work on a Chervrolet Tahoe. Most of the time though, it is the Chevrolet Tahoe PPV. This build is for a chief and is his daily driver. Opting for a few more comfort options, the non-PPV was purchased. That makes our work a little more difficult but it was no sweat!
The equipment we will be putting in this vehicle is:
SoundOff Signal nForce Interior Light Bar with Chrevolet Tahoe rear Windshield shroud (rear)
on a Vehicle Specific SoundOff mPower Fascia Chevrolet Tahoe Grille Bracket
SoundOff Signal nErgy 400 Handheld Siren

Our latest feature emergency vehicle build includes many great products. This was a fun car to build and it looks absolutely slick!
On the outside of the Ford Utility sits the SoundOff Signal nForce Dual Color Lightbar. The SoundOff nForce Light bar has all of the modern features including, cruise mode, takedown, full flood scene lights and arrow stick capability!
In the grill we used the SoundOff Signal mPower Fascia 3, which is the 3" version of the SoundOff Signal mPower Fascia family. The light also comes in SoundOff Signal mPower Fascia 4, which is a 4" light. The Fascia 3 fits perfectly into the Ford Utility grill cutouts. The mPower Fascia 3 in this vehicle also has the cruise mode function.
In the corner of the headlights is the SoundOff Signal Ghost LED. We kept it white in color for maximum attention getting. What is neat about this set up is the SoundOff Signal Ghost is a split color light. We used white on both halves which gives it a neat, back and forth police strobe light effect.
On the sides of the vehicle we used the HG2 Emergency Lighting SideRunner Lights. This was our first time using these lights on a vehicle and we are impressed! You can order the HG2s but contacting us via E-mail (special order for now until we get them on the website).
The backend of the corner sports the Feneix Fusion 200 in the quarter windows.
The rear end has a Feniex Fusion 600 Light stick mounted to the hatch. Two Feniex Cannon 120s in the rear tail light. The license plate consists of two SoundOff Signal mPower Fascia 4 which is the same light we mentioned above. The Fascia 4 is attached to the SoundOff Signal License Plate bracket specifically for Fascia Lights.
That wraps up our recent featured install. If you have a project you'd like us to help you with, let us know. We proudly make the best emergency vehicles in St. Louis and the surrounding region. All SoundOff equipment can be purchased on our website or via e-mail the store contact page!

It has been awhile since our last blog post. We have been busy building police cars. If you remember a few months back we became an Authorized SoundOff Signal Dealer. Our area consists of the eastern side of Missouri including St. Louis. Since becoming a dealer we have been trying to put SoundOff Signal on as many cars as we can.
We have have fallen in love with SoundOff Signal's emergency light product line. Let me preface this by saying, SoundOff doesn't pay us anything to gush over them like this. We chose to become a SoundOff dealer and we aren't looking back. Of the emergency vehicle's we have built with SoundOff, we have had no product failures! Their engineering standards seem to be on point! They make great emergency vehicle lights.
We know that price is a big contention with a lot users in the public safety industry. I know that when you see a SoundOff Signal nForce Surface Mount Single Color for $97 and then you see a cheaper emergency vehicle light you're instantly drawn to the cheap product. I get it and I don't blame you for that. Ultimately at the end of the day you have to decide what is right for your vehicle, agency, and safety. SoundOff Signal lights come with a 5 year warranty! From what we have seen thus far, you won't need. Those cheaper lights won't have that kind of coverage. To me SoundOff Lights are worth every penny. We have been installing the nForce Light Bar, the nErgy Remote Siren, the nErgy Handheld siren and where ever we can the mPower Fascia series.
We also carry Feniex products if you're on a tight budget. Feniex produces a good light and is also backed with a 5 year warranty on their lights. If you have room in the budget, go SoundOff, you won't be disappointed!

We had the unique opportunity to build a 2017 Chevrolet Traverse for one of our local university's. The vehicle was to be outfitted a full police package and marked.
For the lighting equipment we used a SoundOff Signal dual color nForce exterior light bar. The bar sports 1/2 red & 1/2 blue in front and rear. The secondary color in the front is white and in the rear is amber. The front provides a full 180 degree white flood mode which makes for a great scene light. The rear being amber provides a directional area that can operate with or without the full emergency lighting on. Also a cool piece of equipment was we used the SoundOff Signal Xtrafit Mounting strap kit for the nForce Light bar. Essentially a seat belt type of material, it contours nicely to the roof of the Traverse.
In front we installed two single color 4" SoundOff Signal mPower Fascia 4 6-LED lights. The lights fit nice and snug between the grill louvers making for a great grill led warning light. We put 2 more SoundOff Signal mPower Fascia 4 6-LED lights in the rear window for rear warning. We mounted two SoundOff Signal mPower Quick Mount Fascia 3's with white housing, on the rear bumper. We went with the Fascia 3 as it is a 3" light and had better change to contour to the bumper better. It worked fantastic. Less holes in the bumper!
All the exterior lights are tied together to utilize a cruise mode, which easily one of our favorite options.
Inside the vehicle, for a control we used the SoundOff Signal nErgy 400 Handheld Remote Siren. Due to the clients choice of retaining the civilian style console, a handheld remote is the only thing that made sense. Using SoundOffs programming software we were able to get the nErgy 400 Handheld to preform all the functions the client desired.
For the rifle rack we used a Weiser Solutions, WEI-003 with a handcuff/universal locking mechanism. The rack was able to be fastened to the track of the sliding 2nd row seats.
