Just thought Id share what my new ride looks like...alot like the old one, but differant engine (485 Cummins with a burn box instead of a Acert CAT) and dash.

2010 Pete, 485 Cummins with a 13spd...i got it about a week ago and it had 57k miles on it :woot:

nice ride! let us know how that cummins compares to the cat you had:peelout
Thanks! so far the throttle response is ALOT differant...it seems to rev up faster when downshifting and fall off RPMs slower when upshifting..the Jakes are much better then the cat. When Im going down the road the regen takes some getting used to because the turbo acts all weird. At highway speed the engine is quieter. It doesnt pull as good though, but with only 58k on it now I dont expect it to start pulling real good for awhile yet.

I'll work on that...leaving sycamore IL right now, gotta be in cincinatti by morning then onto Canada for a week or so :fan

Nice! Just out of curiosity, what are these newer big rigs running you guys these days?
no idea, id have to ask around. there are about 200ish trucks in the fleet, the 2007s like i used to have are all getting turned in this year. they are the oldest trucks we have averaging about 250k miles. (I dont own it, its a company truck)

the chrome on the dash I bought myself, it just kinda clips onto the gauges but makes a big differance in how the dash looks IMO. I work for a company called upstaging (www.upstaging.com)

nice truck !

thanks, and yea, its a lawrance system...that KW and Pete both use...only thing is its not a TRUCK ROUTE GPS...it has no truck routing, no weigh stations, etc etc...we havnt really figured out why they chose to use a car program in a truck,but it looks cool i guess..:bash

interesting choice.

i stopped using a GPS when i installed my jottodesk...streets & trips is
cheaper to update (just buy new each year) and the "screen" is bigger,
plus the construction data is updated more frequently ;)

how did that happen?

Upstaging? They had a shop up in Mundelien IL. I ran with a few of you guys. Was a great way to make good time heading out west.. Your with one of the few companys left that can still run with the big O/O and bull haulers.

Just this year I ran with 2 of your co workers from OK out to CA. made good time at night.

I was sitting in Bordentown NJ at the petro, another driver didnt turn as much as he should have while backing in. :bash:nunu:

thats us :peelout...they sold the mundelien place and now we have a biger shop in sycamore. Our trucks are governed though (see avatar picture :knight)
