Lag bolts? like to put wood together? real coarse threads?, just curious about the terminologyThis is the first time that this truck has been photographed and posted on anywhere on the net. There was another guy with a tow-truck in Texas who had several radios for what he did. I guess who-ever gets to an accident first in Texas gets the tow.
I did have an Expedition before this truck which had six radios in it. I'll post those pictures below. I had the Exped set up like that when I was just doing the news and no repos. I took all of the equipment out of that Expedition and traded it (the Exped, not the equipment) in for my wife’s current car. Most of the radios/equipment went into the F350.
The Troy consoles are two of the adjustable models. I believe I have a CC-C16 and a CC-C18. There is information about them on their website. Again, I did have to cut off one end of both consoles (which was hard to do because they were brand-new and like $600!) and weld them together to get the length I needed. I got the adjustable models because I wanted to bring the radio faces up as high as I could… also some of the Motorola radios are deep and I didn’t want them to stick out more then any other radio in the console.
I mounted the console through the floor-board, above the tranny with lag-bolts. I stacked strips of 1/4-inch aluminum under the console in the front to ramp it up a bit for better viewing of the radios closer to the dashboard. Once I covered the console with wood and carpet, you could no-longer see that void between the console and the floor. I can post pictures if you’d like…
The 800MHz radios were programmed identically. San Diego County is mostly on two 800MHz trunked systems. One is (mostly) digital and the other is all analog. The scanner was placed in there for versatility since it is easily field programmable.
Lacking input from ChatoB at this point I can give you some direction.Care to share any of your sources for the power distribution system ?
I'm having trouble locating anything locally that's not auto stereo garbage.
