    If you go with a Cat avoid the '04 and up accert twin turbo engines like the plague - get a pre-emissions Cat. If you're looking at ISX's get an '06 or earlier - stay away from the new ones with DPF's. Full gauge package is a must - get all the gauges and pay attention to them. If you want a 389 get a glider with a pre-emission engine.

    You'll have to settle for a use Fatboy since HD stopped making them.



    The thought of a filter on that thing makes me disgusted... I've been told I needed a muffler, but never a filter.

    I saw that stuff at the Petro in OKC yesterday. I thought it was a joke... Engine Exhaust Fluid.... I cracked up laughing thinking about the JB Hunt driver that was looking to replenish his blinker fluid.

    Mines would be a peterbilt 359 with a flat top with a window in back with a reliable cummins in it with air conditioning with modern look, keep the Bette dash with new peterbilt seats hardwood floor either that or a 386 with a window in back of sleeper with a turbo wing
