    @Oram, thank you for your input although I do have another question for you because I don't think I read it on these posts. What was the final weight on your T680 once you picked it up? I am assuming the wide tire setup did lower your weight a bit. If you answered this in your posts I apologize before hand. Thanks.

    Dealer/factory built that is shown on every truck driver side door is way less...than real full of fluids weight
    Dry weight off the dealer summary on mine was 18400 lbs......full of liquids 2 light weight drivers and needed stuff was 21040 lbs....
    I have a volvo 780 dealer quote with isx and 13 od manual, dry weight was18957 lbs...so 500 lbs heavier than kw 680....

    Kw 680 has 2 options when truck's built for the Dpf/Doc filters....1 is to have them under pasanger seat....the other option is to have those under the cab, mounted under each frame rails longitudinally.....this option seems heavier because the filters are longer, in this case they may last longer before cleaning them but there very,very little space there to work/change parts that will go wrong later in life......Wish i'd had gotten the first option....but i didn't realized that i could had that till i've seen a few diferent co trucks....seems that cheaper since all big comp got ghose under pasanger seat.......
    Oram wich one u have??????toskabg never answer this either.....

    I just broke down in Chicago IL. Probably a broken airline, but I can not move or go under here on the ramp. Thanks God I was driving slow when it happened. I called the local dealership, they gave the phone number of a tow truck service. They said it should be towed to the dealership and they will look Wednesday morning. Now Thursday afternoon. Great warranty service.... I called a roadside service on my own cost....
