    Arrow or Freightliner Select , JUst remember every used truck is the luck of the draw . Look for a truck with low Idle hrs and one with an Apu if possible . Oil samples and I would also pay some one to hook up Diagnostic software and check the DEF and egr systems are in working order .

    Oil samples would be tough. Dealers change that stuff before it goes up for sale.

    It should be on the dash , you have to scroll through the settings or if you have diagnostics software it can read for you . A truck with high idle hrs would be considered severe duty use under most engine manufacturers.

    I guess mine was like that. Luckily the emission problem showed up during warranty time offered by Penske, so they changed the DPF injector and couple of other sensors too. Thanks for the message.

    U can go to freightliner most of their trucks are swift or jb hunt, most of the other ones buy from auctions, u can go by one and ask if can take it for a test drive and ask if they have a problem if you take it to your mechanic. ???

    Auctions don't leave the property. Or test drive.
