    • Can someone explain what this is for, or how to use it?  
    • When you have rubber floors, you don't need mats.  You simply hose out or mop the floors.  Sounds stupid, I know.  But I've always used a mop and bucket to clean the rubber floors of commercial vehicles.  You could also use a wash rag, brush, and bucket of soapy water if you want to do it by hand.
    • I have installed a lot of different light bars sourced from Amazon.com.   Some have been better than others.   Currently, I like RigidHorse & AutoFeel.  Based upon what I see, most of these products are branded by different sellers, but come from the same factories in China.  Some have better pricing.  Some offer better product support and service.  I use these 2 brands because they use the same power supply wiring harness, which is remote operated.  Simply attach to battery under the hood, and connect to the light bar.  No drilling holes in the firewall and dashboard, no additional wire runs to install a switch.  A remote control key fob operates all of the lighting functions.  Lights can illuminate in white/daylight, and amber.  Lights can also be used as emergency lighting with flashing strobe patterns.  The obvious is that the bigger the light bar, the LEDs, the higher the amp draw, and you get a higher lumen output putting more useable light on the road.   https://smile.amazon.com/stores/node/11475974011?_encoding=UTF8&field-lbr_brands_browse-bin=Rigidhorse&ref_=bl_dp_s_web_11475974011   https://smile.amazon.com/AutoFeel/b/ref=bl_dp_s_web_10718189011?ie=UTF8&node=10718189011&field-lbr_brands_browse-bin=AutoFeel             Roll over image to zoom in     AutoFeel LED Light Bar Straight, Autofeel 22" 256W 8D Quad Row Spotlights Combo Beam Light bar Amber lamp for Truck Jeep ATV UTV Wrangler SUV Dodge Ram 4x4 Ford Golf 2.2 out of 5 stars    21 customer reviews   | 19 answered questions       Price: $67.99 Free Shipping for Prime Members       Roll over image to zoom in     AutoFeel LED Light bar Curved, AutoFeel 52" 8D Quad Row Spot Flood Combo Beam Lightbar Off Road Auto Work LED Light Bar for Truck Jeep ATV UTV Wrangler SUV Dodge Ram 4x4 Ford Golf 4.0 out of 5 stars    149 customer reviews   | 167 answered questions       Price: $140.99 Free Shipping for Prime Members       Rigidhorse 8D Quad Row LED Light Bar 7 Inch LED Spot Light Light Bar Accessories Combined use:7 inch with large size light bar use together (22 "32" 42 "52"), can make the lighting effect more significant $1599 8D Quad-Row Rigidhorse 22 inch Quad Row Light Bar Design: The unique 4 rows of high density LED chips and 8D lens make sure the light will be much bright $8699   $5099   $7999 $9099   $17099     10% off coupon 10% coupon available LED Light Bar Rigidhorse 20 Inch 139W 8D Dual-Model Light Bar DRL/Night Light Spot Light For SUV Truck ATV Pickup $4999 61 10% off coupon 10% coupon available LED Light Bar Rigidhorse 29 Inch 172W 8D Dual-Model Light Bar DRL/Night Light Spot Light For SUV Truck ATV Pickup $8499 61 LED Light Bar Rigidhorse 47 Inch 400W 8D Dual-Model Light Bar DRL/Night Light Spot Light For SUV Truck ATV Pickup $11199 61 ADD TO CART LED Light Bar Rigidhorse 38 Inch 300W 8D Dual-Model Light Bar DRL/Night Light Spot Light For SUV Truck ATV Pickup $10099 61 ADD TO CART   $4099 $2999   $7099        
    •   Oakland, California Police use the current generation Transit Connect for Crime Scene Unit.  The City and County of San Francisco uses Transit Connects in many departments.     Nobody uses it as a pursuit vehicle.    
    •       As opposed to visiting a dealership, where you can pick up something loaded with every option, and negotiate the price.   Maybe different for every location and dealership.  But every car dealer is in business to move cars off their lot.  
    • If you ever have to remove the plate , use an electric heat gun it will make the adhesive weaken and allow for easy removal.
    • Yes, it's double sided tape.  The grille kit came with tape and a 'cleaning agent' which makes it stick to the plastic much better so I used some of that to clean the bumper and I had some 3M double sided tape I bought for a project on my boat and I used two full length strips of that on the license plate.  I'll probably never be able to get it off without destroying it, but I really didn't want to drill any holes   Don
    •     How did you attach the plate to the bumper, some kind of double sided tape or something else?
    • Hi Debspaniel,   What Don said is spot on. I special ordered my 2017 in May 2016 and didn't receive it until end of September 2016. It's frustrating when you configure your vehicle just the way you want it and have to wait so long. But I can say I'm really happy with my TC and it was worth the wait. Don't expect any special deals on the price,  they know they have you at special order, and you'll pretty much pay what they are asking. Good Luck!
