Wonder how the gas mileage is.
Oh, sure......there ya go trying to throw cold water on a good time. It's my daily driver but, alas, it could be easier on the wallet when it comes to fuel economy. My Suburban has HF, VHF, UHF, 700-800 MHz, 2-way Xmit capabilities. No whacker items: no strobes, wig-wags, siren, cage or front push bumper. It is equipped a Unity spotlight (anyone who's owned a vehicle with one will tell you the transition to a vehicle WITHOUT one is stressful.) The Toughbook is equipped with touch screen capability making using those itty-bitty buttons on the radios unnecessary while driving. A Verizon air card allows me to remain online as I drive. The vehicle was purchased and equipped specifically as a stable, robust mobile data and radio platform.

Who knows? While they have a "green" Tahoe Hybrid, they forgot to make a Suburban Hybrid. Did I mention the 42 gallon tank? When gas was over $4 a gallon it was possible to suffer through a $150 fillup at the local gas station.

You mean, when I was LUCKY ENOUGH to find you guys. I've always been a big believer in permanent-mount antennas. This means dropping the headliner, drilling holes in my "baby" and pulling cable through the body pillars. I'll admit that when I was in my teens and early 20s I didn't give a second thought to climbing onto the roof or pulling apart the interior panels. Time and tonnage has made me much more cautious so when I needed 8 antenna holes punched into my sheet steel, I knew I could count on Lund Industries in Wheeling, IL. Lund supplied the console and MDT mount, I installed the radios/MDT. I had to move stuff around every so often to find the permanent configuration I liked the best.

You guys are life-savers and I vow to NEVER go anywhere else for mission-critical equipment and supplies.

(And no, I don't own, work for, or am otherwise compensated by Lund. I just wanna give the appropriate credit wher credit's due.)

Anyone can own a Armored Car, but Secret service one are required to be destroyed, this seems to be one that was outfitted but never used by the secret service.

The listing has been removed, must have been the Lights

The license is for an armored car-- like brinks--Wells Fargo etc. A business type armored car the same with an ambulance it says you need a license. The bullet resistant car is not anything like an armored car in the statute.
