    2 weeks ago while waiting on "bad tags" to be replaced by "good tags" made a sign in block letters and put it in the windshield, "I love bad tags". Once retagged and loaded, gave the sign to "Wild Bill" he put it in the window of his lift. This week, sign read, "will work for tags" was offered to Bill who said Sam didn't think it was funny so it was given to Wes when we got the bol. Sam saw it and chuckled. Wes said he was going to post it on the wall of his cubicle.


    sometimes when i go to get the picklist, i want to say, "mornin Sam" and have him reply "mornin Ralph" like the old wolf/sheepdog cartoon when they meet at the timeclock in the morning and try to steal sheep/protect sheep all shift.

    Was the destination changed because of Isaac?

    I heard that the new 2013 are not turned down at all and end up being a little less hp than the 2012 turned down.

    That may actually be the case if they indeed went to the dd13. That motor is only rated a max 450hp

    The reason for the change was to have less weight....which makes a lot of sense.....At least that Is what I had heard.

    As much driving as I do in PA, WVA, VA, I would rather have the HP and weight..... but thats just me.....
    After all, I end up hauling all these 48K+ lbs monster coils out there all the time......

    Decreased HP worries me a little, thats all.
    Doesn't have any affect on my current truck of course, but in the future..... well.....:biggrin_25512:

    Been out for two weeks. All this talk about being hung out must've jinxed me LOL. But the miles were good so I can't complain.

    Have a great weekend, drive safe and enjoy the ride.

    Yeah it was a weight saving measure. As for HP,you wont have any less unless they want you to because even though the dd15 is rated 550hp Maverick typically derates them to about 430 or so. However its really the rearends that dictate your uphill speed. Proper gearing in the rearends and you will think you have a "big" truck lol

    what's the matter with remodeling job. Hours are great money good what's the matter to much time at home. Or is it a boss looking over your shoulder all day. Or is it that they have no medical.
