    All my trucks are kept in good running order. No oil leaks or anything. If they have any issues I fix it which I can do without taking to shop. A new truck can get shut down just as fast as a old one.

    Worked the bugs out years ago. But when I do get a new one im sure I'll have to find the weak spots and take care of them. Again. Then it'll be good to go. Again. How's those air gap doors treatin ya?best way to fix the rattles is upgrade your sound system. Surprised rattle trap hasn't shrunk one down and put some treble hooks on it for a bass bait.

    No gaps for me. And actually rides pretty smooth. But I also run good tires and keep up the pm. The bugs been worked out my old trucks for 19 years.

    I'm just partial to working defrosters and front ends that don't creak and pup when its in a bind with 10,000 pounds on it and being able to hear the radio at normal volume and gets 9 miles per gallon on a bad day and runs on free biodiesel 50/50 mix if I need it to and won't get me ran out of ca.if I ever needed to go and don't shake your teeth out at 80 mph ac you can feel that don't escape everywhere and floor board that stays below 130 degrees in the summer. A passed an old freight shaker classic today in baton rouge that said Miami on the door and if he felt OK driving back there in it that's fine but I personally wouldn't have drove it past the next exit.each to his own. Steer tires that wear evenly. Leather. Accent lighting. A bed I can stretch out in.paint worth washing. Chrome. Low air leaf.train horns.I don't wear shoes in my truck. They come off,then I put feet in.chrome dashboard.all depends on what you're into. Last but not least,my girlfriend ain't riding in a freightliner period.
