  • Approximately 45,6** miles
  • Truck removed from service due to electrical issues with emergency equipment. Issues appear to have been resolved by disconnecting the emergency equipment master switch.
  • January 2022 Virginia Inspection sticker.
  • Note that since vehicle has set mostly unused for 12 months it will need to be driven approximately 50-100 miles before getting a VA emissions inspection.
  • Update 1/21/2022: The vehicle’s bright headlights do not currently work when the emergency master switch is disconnected. The original vehicle outfitter – FastLane Emergency Vehicles – explained that the fix for this is a simple process that they could either handle or walk a competent mechanic through over the phone. Please bid with this in mind.
