    Basically just whelen ions lol. The upfit cost for our 21s is just over $14k each, including a new half cage and trunk box.

    I'm in Dallas area 20 miles from the factory. We have TONS and I mean TONS of PPV Tahoe's "On Duty" around here. But I haven't seen one 2021 PPV model on the road either


    Been keeping eye on local surplus auctions and many 07-14's are popping up

    We were going to sell our 2017 before the factory warranty on the powertrain ran out.

    Dave many 2020s are up for sale. I got one with 13k miles out of Little Rock. autotrader has tons of them., ya gotta dig. I paid $42k got leather seats too. Weather Tec floor and bed covers. Original mats.

    I just need to deal with the crappy back up camera..horrible. I get a new Company Terrain every 50k miles. I’ve had no less than 4. Their cameras are awesome.
    No reason GM dropped the ball on this tiny item. Like they went back in time.
    Really it makes the auto seem cheap.
    My daughter has a new Bronco and awesome camera. And the wife’s 2016 convertible E550 is a hard bar to lift, but damn!
    As Buden would say. Com’on GM

    Can you comment on the ride quality / performance of the suspension? Considering sourcing a set of the monotube gas shocks that are standard on the PPV? The shocks on my RST are worse than awful.

    Tahoe PPVs and SSVs MSRP is under $50k.

    With bid assistance they're being sold for as low as $31k. Typical range is between $34-37k

    Orders for 2021s were closed 1/26, orders for 2022s open 8/12.

    You're going to need new equipment for all vehicle specific equipment such as pushbumpers, consoles, cages, and lightbar brackets. Whelen has all their equipment released but their lead times are out to around June or so. SoundOff Signal seems to be a bit faster.

    Most dealers are just starting to get their 2021s in. My first ones are being built in 2 weeks. There are a couple that have been upfitted and put in service.

    Haven't driven one yet but talking to my GM reps they do ride and handle nice, but since these are PPVs the suspensions are still very stiff to reduce body roll and do well in cornerning. If you're looking for comfort, PPV shocks and springs are not it. If you're looking for a low to the ground and performance oriented ride, then PPV shocks and springs are the way to go.

    Sorry for the double post, just saw this. The seats are designed to better contour duty belts.

    Tom, here in Bama, a Tahoe PPV on state bid is not 70K! In fact, we can buy 2 at that price. Ours are the 2wd PPV models.

    Yeah. We missed the cut off date. We are going to have to wait. We are switching to trooper's silver color (or grey if silver not available). We are going to try to go all Federal Signal if we can. We have been using Signal, Brookings, Feniex, etc. for a good while since we ran away from Tomar. Trying to get us back to a more tried and true line of equipment. I will say, the Signal lights are very reliable. Just noisy with rattles and not many features.
