I would get a radar detector but they look ugly just plugged on the windshield

If buying one I've been thinking about getting some sort of box (something tasteful) and drilling a hole for the power wire to snake through

Like Ben said, Just wait it's coming... DO NOT be a smart ass, I have some real good stories and only twice I did not get a ticket because I was working. The other pull overs for stupid stuff (non moving violations) I didn't get ticketed either.

Totally off topic but I love how someone saying that Motorcraft 5-30 is good for 11k miles and that he is sure it's still good oil cuz it's slippery between his fingers caused me to make a reply that is now 4 or 5 people's signature.

That being said..... I use the 'ole calibrated eyeball. Cops in NJ THINK they are slick but they aren't. They all hide in the same spots so if you drive the same routes day in and day out, you know when you can speed and when you can't. I speed, but I don't pass everyone on the road and drive like an asshat. Plus, if you do get pulled over in NJ and have a radar detector you are GAURENTEED a ticket, where if you didn't have one you might be able to talk your way out of it being respectful. With insurance rates how they are in this state, I'd rather not have one.

The V1 is 100% worth the 400 dollars. The arrows may seem to be a gimmick to some people, but it has saved my ass a few times. Not to mention it was quick to let me know that an unmarked Toyota Camry (!!!) LEO was coming up behind me (the arrows showed this) tagging people. The Toyota truck that sped passed me clearly didn't have that advantage and got pulled over.

As far as 5.9 Rams...yea...not very quick. However, My 5.9 Dakota R/T is easily every bit as quick as a stock SHO, I can see getting in trouble in that.
