Freightliner Classic

I bought this truck about a month ago. This is my first truck with an electronic engine, cruise, air ride cab or any thing else nice. It's an 04 Freightliner classic with a C15, 10 speed, 3.78 rears on a 280" wheelbase. So far it's been doing me a good job, it just looks like a company truck.... I'll see what I can do about that.

Made a little progress on my truck. Changed the visor, threw some pipes and a bumper I had laying around on and mounted a set of WTI fiberglass fenders.

What a difference a few days make! Looks like you did a fine job transforming the plain jane to an O.O. rig.. Be careful about that fine line you walk. There's a lot of "people" that like cake.---Bob By the way, I like your avatar. I've got the the guys like that lined up with the caption Keep On Truckin' on the back glass of my crane truck.

I'm not generally a freightliner fan, but that is a nice looking truck, especially with the changes you've made. Keep it up.

If you'd ask me I'd say I was a Peterbilt guy. But I keep ending up with these Freightliners and then they grow on me so I start fixin em up then pretty soon.... And I start getting compliments out in the road so I just keep em

I will say this. Freightliner's are easy to work on. Their design is simple and it works.
