    Hi People Just thought I would ask, what's the most popular truck state side out here in New Zealand American trucks are very popular, I my self for linehaul work prefer european Volvo, Scania, Iveco, Man. I drove a KW K104 coe twin steer 4 axle truck & trailer for a few months it was not a nice truck on the road, it seemed to waltz down the road & find every bump & pothole, no room in the cab, the gear shift lever rubbed on your right knee all the time it had a 550 Cat moter & 18 spd R/Ranger lots of grunt but no comfort. Also have driven a few Macks, sorry not for me, American trucks are built for American roads, if you guys saw our main state highway you would be shocked, out of 500 miles 400 is two lane, what you would call a 2nd or 3rd class rd is our main highway LOL I would love to come to the USA & ride shot gun for awhile & see your buetiful country perhaps oneday.

    Cheers from NZ

    Well my company trucks are Kenworth T-800's, they are driven in the oil patch so they are offroad a lot. Personally I think that they ride pretty rough, but they are durable and built to haul, not for comfort. We don't usually drive all day in them anyway so it really doesn't bother me that they ride a little on the rough side.
