Nice to see an LTZ get upfitted. I'm not sure I'd like those sharp corners on the console, though. But I don't know, maybe just this picture makes it look worse than it is but I can see myself scratching or cutting myself on those corners...hopefully it isn't as sharp as it looks?

Looks like a nice, clean install however!

Nope, they are not as bad as they look. You are speaking of where it goes down to the cup holders right? There is actually an angled piece there. I will try to take some better pictures on my lunch break from work.

Yes. From the angle of the photo it looks like a sharp corner on the driver and passenger side, where it comes up from the cupholders. I was wondering if it was just the angle of the pic and not really how it is.

Does this help?
Antennas:

Yes, sure does. What my eyes were seeing and my brain was interpreting was two sharp metal corners. Obviously not the case (and I didn't think it would be).

Looks good. I have that Larsen tri-band myself...used for receive only right now on my 996xt.

What's the switch, is that a warning light switch or a power kill switch to the radios?

Nice install.

The switch controls my LED Whelen Ion's in the Grille.

The reason I bought Tecnet was - I have a friend that sells them. He convinced me thanks to a really affordable price, and a 3 year warranty on them. I really wanted the warranty at the time because I had them in a Jeep Wrangler under a soft top. Who knows if it was going to leak, if they were going to get bird crap on the radios when the top is down, elements with the top down and such. So I went with them, and really..I've been very pleasantly happy. Excellent receive/transmit.
Going with most other brands 2 radios with warranty would be a fortune.

I would like to eventually go Motorola and get an XTL or PM series radio in the future into my truck..but the problem is I'm running out of space! I'd most likely have to take a Tecnet out.

Either way, I've been very happy with them!

Curious: Roughly what does it cost for the labor to have a system like that installed, and the antennas and mounts installed? I assume at least a few hundred dollars, but one thing I haven't seen on most of the posts for professional installs is the cost.

Thanks!!!

It costs a few thousand to get everything custom done like I got. Down to CAD drawings and everything precise. I did it cause I plan on having my vehicle for a long time and don't regret it at all

I think he said he was a Volunteer. That is a very popular vehicle for VFD use... The Chiefs here in NY use them... although I have found them moving from them to Suburbans and some even like to have a big pick up truck.

The State police even have 1 or 2 of them .

Yeah, same here. The chief and asst chief on the city FD both have 3/4 ton crew cab Ram trucks and the OEM coord has a Ford Expedition XL (extended length, like a Suburban). Guess they have a lot of gear to haul.
