The 2014 Impala 9C1 is on the same body/chassis as the 2006+ year models, so everything as far as consoles and wiring is still applicable and will still fit.

Here's a link to the upfitter's manual if you don't already have it: http://www.gmfleet.com/content/dam/gmfl ... _FINAL.pdf
When exposed to Rapid Fire Growth or Thermal Emergency, two things are lost:
1. Ability to use fine motor skills
2. Presence of mind

Impala really has not changed in the last 14 years other than some sheet metal very easy cars to work on. If its a 9C1 everything is in the loop on the passenger side floor and a 100a battery feed and ground post in the trunk if you use a high power radio. Just add an antenna to the trunk and thats it.

I would not put it that way and i have been doing them since 2000 including some LS models as well. Every several years or so
there have been some suttle differences that can make them a pain for example the addition of a crush box. Also you can put
an antenna in the roof in place of a deleted onstar antenna in the area of that deleted onstar antenna and my guide along with
the pics can help with that as a starting point to give others an idea of what they are faced with.

He is talking about the 9C1 Other then a few minor changes that are easily overcome they really havent. I have done numerous LS and 9C3 package cars for the Feds. Follow the upfitters guide and you should be fine.
