Did the police leave all the electronics in the center console or are those things you are adding?

HA!

Do the Bratenahl police still hang out under the bridge and set up speed traps on I71? I thought they lost the rite to do this because they did not have an entrance or exit ramp in city limits on I71?

They left most of the strobes in, but took the console with controllers out. I added the console with accessories back in.

It's actually on i90 that they hang out. They don't sit under the bridge anymore, but they do sit on the entrance ramp and tag you from behind. You better watch out, the car was just purchased by a west-sider!

But did it come with that stuff was the question? Hard to believe that a police agency would leave all that equipment in a car they are selling to the public. Our agency removes everything. Why would you leave a gun rack or siren in a civilian car (only asking for trouble)?

You posted while I was typing this, thanks!

A friend of mine that buys and sells these for a living has found loaded shotguns, baggies of "evidence", all sorts of things left behind. 50% of his sales are to smaller cities that can't afford new cars, so if the car comes with equipment, that's less that the new city has to buy from him.

The other 45% are to security companies and funeral homes. 5% are actually to individual owners.

It's been awhile since I've posted here, and the winter weather has me itching to be able to set the JEEP set back up like the pic posted here. Did you know Cleveland was voted the Forbes Magazine #1 CRAPPIEST places to live in the winter? Can't wait to get the 16' tandem 'yak back out there.

About the pic: I had to find out the hard way that the standard J-style 'yak carriers offered by Yakima and Thule really don't fit our factory cross bars very well, and are VERY unsuited to hold a 16' tandem. I found a nice universal J carrier made by Oak Orchard Canoe that fits very well and holds the 'yak nice and steady.

On a different note, I have a set of Goodyear Silent Armor 255/75r17's and a RC lift on order. The tires are on sale at TireRack for $108 + $40 rebate!
