    You mean your last oops, right? Did you turn too sharp or did you go under your kingpin?

    That's called a cab extender. Price will vary depending on new/used -- I'd expect about $2,000 painted.

    Sorry that happened to you. That accident is very common at many starter companies. Check out our companies trucks when you see it on the road. Our trucks have a lot of them missing/damaged :binky:

    Looks like you didn't damage yours very much. Shame on you !

    A quick search turned up the replacement cab extender page on this site; http://www.trpomaha.com/extenders.html I suspect there are other competitive sources to be found.

    I have no connection to the company, nor have I ever had need to trade with them. However, they DO list pricing for a variety of tractor models in both fiberglass and aluminum. Prices range from $79.50 to $220, and custom painting is available.

    Millis charges there drivers $250.00 per side...as you know we have a special paint code so I am guessing that white might be cheaper...if it was me I would just fork it out of my pocket...our safety bouns per qtr is over $500.00 bucks. Hope its your last...
