Nice try on this one. Once again, the push bar is all wrong, using an aftermarket model rather than a CHP fabricated unit. The red light mounted on the push bar is not correct. The push bar was mounted much lower on the GMC's, with a winch mounted through it. The red light was mounted on the grill itself, just below the hood opening. This was done because the Vehicle Code requires a steady burning red light that's visible to a motorist at the normal sight distance, and it was determined that the steady burning red light in the lightbar is too high. The light was always a 6" Dietz 9-51 lamp in gray, not the 5" lamp in black shown on this pushbar. There should be a passenger side spotlight, and it's missing the tall low band whip, which should be mounted on the rear quarter panel. Since these were primarily rural units, they came from the factory with an AM/FM radio so they guys could get local news and entertainment stations. The antenna for that was mounted on the passenger side front fender. There wasn't much else to do on the night shift, and listening to some rock and roll was one way to stay awake. :-)
