    I've tried to PM him but I get an error message. Anyone know of anyone else in the Milwaukee area? Can be an individual or a shop that does this.

    I go with

    General fire equipment


    (414) 475-0959


    (414) 475-1208 FAX

    975 North Hawley Road
    Milwaukee WI 53213

    My truck



    I have also used Streichers but their installs don't look as good as General fire's.

    Streicher's Police Equipment
    (262) 781-2552
    4777 N 124th St, Butler, WI 53007 Get directions
    Cross Streets: Near the intersection of N 124th St and W Derby Pl

    They did the install on the security truck for the hospital I work at.

    Do not use General Communications

    General Communications Incorporated
    (262) 439-2000
    N57w13466 Reichert Ave, Menomonee Falls, WI 53051 Get directions
    Cross Streets: Between Campbell Dr and Shenandoah Dr


    They might be cheep but you will need to have the work redone by someone else. Use at you own risk. The Hospital I work at had the old security truck done by them. Used too small of cable when installed light bar. Cable got fried and breaker did not trip.

    One more is Hyper lights but I cant find is card with his info. He has a web sight but Im not sure its the one I posted. I have never seen or used any of the vehicles he has installed so I can't tell you how good he is.

    General fire is good. Buddies squads that were done by Streichers have had lots of issues.

    Wicked Warnings is the only person I would consider. If you want reliability, excellence in the work and real customer service, you need to contact George @ Wicked Warnings 630-361-4390 or MrDissociative@gmail.com

    Not only the lights but complete plow harness. Alternator wiring upgrade to battery. Snow-Ex v-box salter. Pre-wet system wiring. Reverse lights. Salter work light. Top rotator with 2 way flash or rotate switch. Air shocks tubing to a under dash pressure gauge/switch. Air compressor in Du-Ha box under rear seat. THEN the 4 corner LED strobes!

    All done properly and magnificently looking!!!

    So I can assume you used $10 and rode the dog home? (Greyhound)
    Rode Amtrack for a trip from Gary back to Milwaukee one time myself. Some end up in the town next door, others land in a whole different state.

    BTW, where are you located? If I'm in milwaukee and need install work, how do I find you?

    Yeah, I used Ultimate Truck in West Allis to install my mini lightbar. Seems to work fine but after looking at it from a distance it looked off-center. Sure enough, got the tape measure out and it is not centered from side to side. The left side is 17.5 inches from the edge and the right side is 16.5 inches from the edge. I realize that this means they only missed it by .5 inch but it still bothers me. Am I being too picky when I expect it to be perfectly centered???

    Part of doing the job right is to put the bar center on the truck. See if they can fix it or if they will give you some money back for not doing it right.
