The Police Upfitter’s Guide has been prepared with the assistance of service and engineering specialists to assist vehicle upfitters in achieving the highest standards of safety and quality in their products. This guide is divided into topics pertinent to upfitters of police vehicles. References are made to the 2006 Dodge Charger and Magnum Service Manual for appropriate service procedures, torques specifications, component separation clearances, and other standard information that is common with the unmodified vehicle.
The Police Upfitter’s Guide does not provide information on how to remove, install, or repair vehicle parts or equipment. This guide must be used as a reference to help ensure that certain important steps in the modification process have been considered. DaimlerChrysler Corporation provides this information only to assist the upfitters, and does not warrant the products, procedures, materials, or the workmanship of the upfitters. DaimlerChrysler Corporation does not provide warranty coverage against failures that result from modification of the vehicle. Following the guidelines contained in this guide does not assure the individual upfitters that the products they modify comply with the U.S. Federal or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards in effect at the time of the modification. The guidelines set forth are based on engineering analyses of the typical police vehicles. If followed, the upfitter’s efforts in certifying vehicles to applicable standards should be aided.
