There’s no disputing the fact that the RAM 1500 SSV is one of America’s favorite workhorses. Now add a bunch of upgrades and modifications, throw in a 4 Wheel Drive as standard, and top it off with the iconic 5.7L Hemi engine, and what you have is an almost unbeatable police truck. The power and abilities of the Dodge Ram are nearly irresistible, which makes it a highly sought after fleet vehicle for departments all over the country. In remote areas with difficult to reach places, the RAM 1500 SSV is a must-have. When you shop with Extreme Tactical Dynamics, you can outfit a whole fleet of Dodge RAMs for a great price.

Did you know the majority of civilians travel the roads in a SUV, crossover, or pick-up truck? It’s true. With that in mind, it only makes sense that police roll in the same type of vehicles. The Dodge Ram 1500 SSV is equipped to keep up other vehicles on the road. The RAM 1500 for police has been around for about 5 years, and is only available to law enforcement.
At first glance, the police Dodge RAM looks just like any other you’d see parked on the street, but the biggest differences are actually out of sight and under the hood. The 4WD truck has a Hemi V-8 engine and can idle for hours without any drag. Dodge added two 100-amp fused circuits to handle increased electrical loads that comes from LED police lights, sirens and speakers, and equipment found in any normal patrol car. With the ability to handle higher electrical loads than its civilian counterpart, the Dodge 1500 SSV is ready to be equipped with emergency vehicle lights and warning equipment as soon as it arrives on the lot. That’s why we’re proud to bring you a specially selected range of LED emergency lights for the RAM.
The Dodge Charger is a full-size, heavy-duty pick-up truck, which deserves a full-size truck light bar. Light bars vary in length from 12” to 48”. To be considered a full-size police light bar, a warning light should measure about 48” long. Our full size Mirage light bar offers a low-profile, an optional takedown light, and the ability to sync with other warning lights. In order to make sure the SSV truck can grab attention in nearly any weather condition, it’s important to add this warning light. In addition to a light bar, we also suggest adding surface and grille strobe lights to a Ford 1500 police truck.
One of the first pieces of police equipment a Dodge Ram police pick-up should receive is a heavy-duty push bumper. As a pursuit vehicle, the truck needs this equipment to prevent engine damage and to protect the body of the vehicle. It’s also a great place to install LED grille lights like our E24s. When you buy surface mount LEDs in bulk, you can be generous with installation. The goal is to provide light wherever you need extra visibility including the center, top, bottom, and sides of the push bumper. But, that’s not the only place you can install extra grille and surface lights.
With a long bed and 5-passenger cab, there’s a ton of body to illuminate. It’s best to install surface mount lights strategically to increase the truck’s visibility in all situations. Installing surface mounts on the side of the RAM, especially near the rear quarter windows and fenders increases the truck’s visibility when crossing intersections, which is one of the only times this police vehicle is extremely vulnerable. Additional ideas for grille and surface LED installation include the tailgate, interior bed, around the license plate, and the back window of the Dodge.
