Maybe to not drill into the car, for resale? Could just be a temporary lighting system?rick521 said:Was close to the interstate a couple of days ago and responded to an accident. One of the new chargers was also at this accident. Was wondering why the wiring for the light bar runs on the outside of the car from the light bar, down the roof on the passengers side and into the trunk?

Or maybe the car has a curtian airbag system. I haven't seen the upfitters manual for these cars yet, so maybe the installer didn't know how to drill into the roof and avoid the airbag system.Grog said:Maybe to not drill into the car, for resale? Could just be a temporary lighting system?
Truth be told Kansas almost makes money on the deal- the legislature has raided the car program fund every year because it has been in the green at the end of the year (by millions of dollars).Grog said:49,500? It muct be nice to burn up that much money so they can drive new cars all the time.
I think Nick ought to put in for a Charger for his next car. lolNBW791 said:I talked to a MO trooper in March who said they're keeping their cars to 69,500 now due to budget constraints.
