    Might see if Schneider is selling anything. On the websight.

    They sell both their old trucks and trailers.

    There is reefer shortage as well. It seems we can't get things back to normal again. You can't find parts. Often, I find things out of stock. You can't even buy a good bicycle anymore. To order one you need to wait a year or longer to get parts.

    It's been said later 22 before inventory gets back to normal.

    My son has a 3 year old vw he can't drive because the only brakes in stock. Aren't the correct brakes. The correct brakes at the moment aren't available.
     
    Jarhed1964, slow.rider and Beaver9 Thank this.

    That’s crazy about the brakes for the car. Do they offer a loaner car or he just sol without a vehicle?

    He's trying to do it himself. He was quoted $500. By some shop.
