KITT Scanner

Post by Avenger95 » Sun Mar 08, 2009 11:29 pm

While not an exact "replica", this seems to be a nice version: http://shop.autoi.com/osb/itemdetails.cfm/ID/4408

Its cleverly named "Night Raider" and is pretty cheap considering what it can do. :kitt:

I bought an original series scanner from ebay. Just got it today. My mechanic is going to put it on my truck next Tuesday. It's going on a 2004 GMC Canyon. As soon as it's on, I'll take pictures and post them.

Ok. Not sure if this is going to work, but I'm going to attempt to put a couple of before pictures up here of my truck and the scanner.

Here goes nothing! :kitt2:

Ok, didn't work as images. Going to try as url's and see if that works.

That works. A little more tedius, as you have to go to a different web site, but you don't have to sign in, and you can get to the other two pictures from the first site.

Well, my mechanic got really busy today, so he didn't get my scanner installed. He promised to make time tomorrow. I can't wait!

That "security scanner" Avenger posted up looks pretty sweet, I'm thinking it'd be quite cool as a security light on a house :D imagine it right up at nearly roof level where the usual security system boxes are lol!

Rain, or should I say CatLver ;) looking forward to seeing your truck with a scanner light. Have to say, thanks to the transformations in the new series I think scanners will now suit different kinds of vehicles much better than before :)

I can't wait to see my truck with my scanner on it, too! :mrgreen:
I like my CatLver plate. It's just one of those ones you can get at the store. My real plates are personalized, though. Not anything to do with Knight Rider, though. They are Star Wars. 8)

Well, what I was afraid of has happened. It is a two day job.
Mostly because they needed me to come in and take a look because they have to do some cutting on the grill, and they wanted to make sure I approved of where to put the scanner, since cuts can't be undone.
Mainly, my dad didn't want me to be mad at him.
So, it is still at the mechanic's and will stay there over night because the grill is still off. The scanner should hopefully be done tomorrow, so I'll get some pictures as soon as I can after I get home and get them posted.

I LOVE how the scanner bar looks! I am STOKED!

I cannot say enough how much I LOVE this scanner on my truck. It just pops!
If anyone is interested, I got the light bar from muny_maker on ebay. With shipping it was $63.99. Installation cost me another $90, but it was well worth it! My mechanic did an EXCELLENT job of installing it, with very minimal cutting to the grill. He installed it through the back of the grill, so there should be know way anyone can grab hold of it and break it or pull it off.

I'm so excited, and can't wait to see the reaction of people on the street! :kittspin:

They can't pull me over if it's not running. I don't run it on the freeway, only backroads, if then.

My dad was itching to play with it while we were in town the other night, but he was too afraid he'd get pulled over.

I was wondering about that. Can this simple modification be notified to DMV so your documents are updated with the new setup? Or maybe because of the light the car can be confused as a POV for EMS/FD volunteers?

KITT: Were you injured?
Mike: No

I didn't notify DMV about it. It is visible, but only really if you're looking for it. Like I said, I don't run it on the freeway, and I don't usually run it on the back roads. Just maybe down my own road to my house. I haven't had any cops pull me over to ask me about it or anything.

I've had the Night Raider installed in the front grill of my Black 2008 F-150 for a few months now- it looks pretty cool. But today I did actually have an off-duty cop perform a (illegal) u-turn in his personal vehicle (nearly causing an accident) to follow me into a parking lot and give me a bunch of crap about the red light, $75 fine, threats, bluster, yada yada yada. Look I have nothing but respect and admiration for police officers and the impossible job they do. But SERIOUSLY?!? THIS is all you have to do on your day off? This guy knocks on my window, hands me a business card (no badge, no ID, NOTHING) and starts chewing me out for a KITT scanner? Good to know all other serious crime in that town has been thwarted.... what a D-Bag.........
