    Most definitely. Unless you get bad csa points. You are still exempt from ELD unless your bad score cause an intervention for the D.O.T.

    As far as I know there just discontinuing building gliders after 2020. All that are already built are grandfathered in so nothing changes for those already built.

    Or they can rebuild old trucks. They will stay busy at Fitzgerald for a long time. There is a lot of old farm trucks sitting in pastures.

    Your only exempt if your engine is pre 99. A lot of 12.7 detroits were built in 2000 and up too.

    No only if his engine is pre 99. Not all gliders are exempt.

    12.7 was built new to 1988-2008 I believe.
    14 liter was 1996-2011.
    11.1 was 1994-1998?
    Not 100% on this.
