    Cascadia no Coronado yes. I guess you know that if you buy a Glider it's deemed a new truck so you have to pay FET on it. That is what I've been told by a fellow O/O and that killed the deal for him. States have cottoned onto this really quickly. You also ought to check on the source of where the engine was rebuilt, probably a Detroit.and that there's a decent warranty on it. I suspect in many instances that you have to buy a warranty. I wouldn't be too keen on that. I just haven't seen a Cascadia but there's many others that fit the criteria. I've even seen a Cat being rebuild that went into a Kenworth.
    Good luck

    I would have my own 12.7 rebuilt. Complete rebuild. I don't know how integration between truck and engine would go.

    As of right now you don't pay FET. You get a new trk yes but a rebuilt motor and trans.

    To avoid FET two of the three drive line have to be used/remaned. Engine , transmission or rears . Freightliner can put in a remained engine coming from the factory . Snd had theirs build with factory remained engines and new rears, just had to hang the transmission . They bought 700 two years ago. We are building 40 of them .

    I'm looking to buy two. Either KW W900 or Pete 389 12.7 60series. Looking at Fitzgeralds or Kustom gliders.
