Default 1997 Cherokee Security Vehicle.

I've always wanted to get an old Cherokee and turn it into a Security Vehicle for my job, well so far I've got the decals on even though the guy that cut'em made them way too small for the doors but they will work for now, I also installed my Uniden BCT-8 scanner and I'm still rebuilding an old code 3 lightbar to mount.

Any suggestions or ideas are welcome.

Additional lighting is always a plus. Go LED if you have the funds so as not to need to upgrade your electrics right away. Good ATs or light MTs so you can patrol in the snow, if you get it. Etc etc etc. There's no limit as to what you can do

Is it 4x4? I think some 235/75 BFG AT's would be good for snow as mentioned.

Yes the tag was a pretty neat idea but according to the OKDPS someone else already had one made, so this is just a Paint.net edit I did.
