Default More Explorer and some Impala pics...

Few months ago I posted something about my work truck I use. It started snowing pretty good last night when I was on duty, and figured I would take a few pics. I know a few of you mentioned you were in the law enforcement profession, and for those who own Explorers and Impala'*, you might like this as well.

2001 Chevy Impala, sitting in the bay. Started snowing like an hour before that. This is usually used as a supervisor vehicle, as it does not have all the goodies like the Explorer has.


Basic controls. Radio on top level, Siren, Lights, then Amber lights below that


Light bar with just red&blues on, plus flashers built into the headlights.


Lightbar with the full system on (red&blues, plus whites) flashers on as well


Now for the sweet vehicle. 1999 Explorer.

Lightbar on full, strobes on, wigwags on.


Highbeams, takedowns and alleys are on. (takedowns are flood lights on the ligtbar, alleys are the side lights)






And, a shot of one of the roller coasters. Its called the Phantoms Revenge, its pretty sweet.


One of the perks for working for a amusement park industry is that you always get in free, so I rode this baby a good number of times, lol.

3.4. It is sluggish, but a very smooth ride. Im pretty sure an L36 could take it easily.
