    Curious if anyone here has tried them out. Everytime I go road test one of these, it is a treat. I know if I was a truck driver and had one of these, well that would one #### of a job.

    I am in one now. It is a very good truck and gets great mpg. It's a little cramped but I wouldn't mind owning one.
    P.S. mine is a company truck if you couldn't guess ;)

    I was kind of sad to see the T600 retiring to make way for the T660.

    the cab is narrow but that's okay for me. I'm driving a t800 right now. Not my favorite looking truck but it has the better interior and I do love KW interiors.

    There isn't a whole lot of difference between the 600 and the 660 from what I understand.

    The T600 really was and is a sweet truck. She took good care of a lot of truckers, and made a lot of money. Last bow to a wonderful lady.

    You're right Rook, I sat in a 660 at MATS, and I've sat in a 600. Interior wise, the 660 is more refined, and the improved KW dash is great. Exterior wise, it still looks a lot like a 600, but more (again)refined and aerodynamic.

    I like the 660 but I like the 600 too. I have an 800 now that I'm not sold on but I didn't buy it.

    Kenworth is calling the 660 the most aerodynamic truck made. SO I guess that means it's must be more aerodynamic than the t2000

    big surprise there...i even had a truck dealer in great falls tell me that the T600 got better mileage then the T2000, plus you can daycab it and give it a second life hualin dirt....try that with a T200. besides i think all the "wide" body trucks are ugly....lol
    and before you ask...yes i did look around ALOT before i bought brickmans truck....now all i need is luck

    Medicine Man or anyone else with T800 experience,
    What do you not like about the T800 and how do they compare (MPG) to say a T600 with the same setup? I have started looking for a T600 or T800 (1996-2001). I like the looks of both of them. My brother wants me to get a Freighliner Classic or Classic xl but I was hoping for better MPGs.
