I actually read your whole story and I don’t usually do that. Lol.
I had an experience real early on with an officer going above and beyond to make my routine stop miserable.
I didn’t fight it, I paid. Figured I break plenty of those laws can afford to pay this one. (maybe a little over speed here n there, rolled an occasional stop sign or a little burn out here n there.)

However it lead me to volunteer for my local PD for about 5 years.
I still don’t name drop when pulled over but typically know what to say to make pleasant conversation to prove I’m not a d ball.
However, some kids on the power trip get the ear full from me. **** I wrinkled up a ticked once and tossed it over my shoulder while looking him in the eyes and saying swish. LOL.
I paid that one too, cuz I knew it was game over.
I think it was for mud flaps or lack thereof lol. (IMO truck reeeeally didn’t need em)
Pick n choose em my man. But to each their own. I don’t intentionally break the law, my trucks and bikes aren’t even close to being douchie, I don’t like it.
But when an officer gets bored and picks me as his time killer, we’re all having fun.
I get you man, I know when not to mess with the cops, and I also know how to BS (or sometimes straight up bully) my way out of a ticket. When I was a kid my driving record was pretty smoked, and usually didn't get too mad about it because in my mind I knew I deserved it. That's why I get so upset about the times later in life where while doing nothing wrong they still go out of their way to power trip and it just pisses me off how they always get their way in those situations, seemingly moreso than some of the times they actually catch you red handed! I know not all cops are bad, I've met plenty of cool ones (or more realistically a couple cool ones and several who were at least reasonable decent guys who are just doing their job), but there are some really terrible ones out there and it's a gamble you never know who you're gonna get stopped by. That's why I don't poke the beehive without first knowing for sure if it's full of honey or wasps.

Also I’m rebuilding an 08 750
Dude blew the tire off and destroyed the whole tail, wiring harness got ripped out, and ecu ejected. All kinds of fun stuff.

sucks about the carnage, but will be a really nice bike when you're done!

You could do it all up in white, the logo on the door "Dream Police"

I can use vinyl decals…easy on, easy off…maybe just the one light like The die cast step side shown…
Red light to the front is almost universally illegal unless an emergency vehicle. Blue lights anywhere are also almost universally illegal except for emergency vehicles. If you put a light bar on top and have any kind of decals combined with the black/white paint scheme... I would expect to at a minimum get pulled over regularly. They will likely just impound/tow it after the first few times of you getting pulled over and not removing the lights and/or decals. The transformer franchise could get a way with it because it was never operated on the open road. This just seems like a bad idea all the way around and I can almost guarantee it will end badly for you and maybe the truck
