    IF you are interested I do have an 2007 M2 ext. cab for sale, it has the 250hp C7 cat that can be uprated to I believe 300 hp. It has the 6 sp. Allison, all alum 22.5 wheels, is pretty well loaded, A/C, Air Brake, Air ride, P/W etc.



    Looking for about 25,000 for it with a clean, clear title.

    Truck has 300,000 easy miles on it and I got 13 MPG bobtailing it home, probably figure around 9-10 MPG loaded, rated at 33,000 GVW. It is a sharp little truck.Truck to buy for hotshot? F-350 or Freightliner M2?-m2.jpg

    You can do pretty well. With a 45' horse trailer, the M2 with the C11 and 10 speed was in the low-to-mid 8s. But if you're running something with a drivetrain comparable to a pickup, and you're turning as many RPMs as a pickup would be, then you're not likely to see any improvement. Ran across a guy yesterday running a Class 8 single axle pulling a gooseneck. F/L Columbia with a C12 Cat and 3.55 rears with a 13 speed. So he was probably only turning about 1400 - 1450 RPMs at 70 MPH.... you'd be turning considerably more in a pickup.

    Kansas Transit, I will pass this along to my partners and see what they think. Do you have any more pictures?

    These pics are from the sister trucks that I had converted, but they are all the same.

    They do have air ride seats, tilt/tele wheel decent stereo, dual fuel tanks, they also have the optional wrap around sleeper curtain that comes all the way across the dash like a sleeper truck truck to give you more room in the ext. cab area.

    THX, Stan

    Thanks Stan

    I'd go with at LEAST a F450 and prefer a F550 for hotshot work.

    Hey LA, they were built to haul and RV travel trailer on the deck and pull one behind, the reason there is a hyd. lift on the front part of the deck so that they can haul two cars back.

    But I had a guy that waned four of them before I every got them on the road, so I sold the ones that were done and then just never did anything with the last cab and chassis as it was not started yet.

    Thanks for asking,

    Stan

    Kansas,

    I'm looking for a haul and tow. Is this truck still for sale? How much with a bed on it like the other two?

    Thanks
