Default 2005 Ford Ranger

My humble mobile setup. It serves me well as I spend 8 hours daily, 5 days per week, driving about 120 miles daily. In the picture, I have a PRO-197 Digital Trunk Tracker, Uniden 780XLT, and Uniden BCT8.

The cabinet for the Bearcats is custom. I had to deal with a very tight space, but having easy access and viewing was important.

I use Scan Control to program the Bearcats and PSR500 for the 197. Thanks for looking.

Good looking install! That's an impressive piece of pipe holding up the laptop - do you get a lot of vibration on that? Thanks for the photos.

I didnt notice that until you pointed it out. Looks like it may be connected to a radio under the seat?

federal signal mic prob goes to a siren. I can't tell but there are some switches there too. He might be in fire or ems or law.

No, it does not vibrate at all.

The Mic is strictly for PA. All of our comm radios are handhelds. I should have put mine in the picture. I use a Motorola XTS5000.

Thanks for all the comments.

if you don't mind my asking, what do you do for a living. Just curious, as you said you spend 8 hours daily in the car.

Nice Setup.
