If your lightbars are bolted directly to the ambulance body, you probably have either a Whelen 4000 or a Whelen 4500 lightbar. They use four sliding carriage bolts to fasten the bar to the body, so the bolts could be anywhere along the bar. Typically, they will be about 10-12" in from each end, and then about 16" out from the center.Eric,
Sorry to hear about your illness. I hope the treatments are going well.
New guy here reading this thread in entirety! My module is an '02 but appears identical to yours. I have front/rear lightbars to remove. I was planning to cut down the center hump like you did, but if I had the bolt location dimensions, I could just holesaw around the bolt heads.
Is there any way you could provide the center-to-center bolt locations? I would do some "investigative" drilling to find the exact center of the bolt heads.
Either way, you have been a great benefit to my project.
Your truck looks great, what a transformation! Did you get your paint mixed as a semi gloss? Not that I am anywhere near paint on mine yet, but my wife and I are thinking about satin or semi gloss for our truck.
I was wanting to get my spare on the back, and I have a pathfinder tire rack. Might need to borrow this idea.Built my tire carrier out of 2 Nissan Pathfinder carriers, and beefed it up.
It is attached at 4 points (plus a load bearing perch), and really firm.
All in, $300.
