Pierce Dash CF (2011-2020)[edit | edit source]
The Pierce Dash chassis was resurrected in 2011 as the Pierce Dash CF. It was an improved design over the previous versions. It included a larger, single-piece windshield and the engine was lowered and moved to the rear of the cab, allowing space for a third firefighter to sit in between the driver and the officer. The Dash CF was originally introduced as a PUC-only chassis but transitioned to use as a full custom chassis. The Dash CF chassis was discontinued sometime in 2020.
The first Dash CF built was for the Cedar Hill Fire Department, Texas.
