    anyone have one yet? I know I won't be getting one anytime soon(YEAY!!!!), since my Mack only has 280K on it. Talked with one guy and he didn't really tell me much otehr than the sirius/xm that's built in. (he just got his) I know High Point seems to be getting a slew of them, at least they have about 3 in the shop(when I'm there) setting them up.

    I am wondering if they have all the bells and alarms in the name of safety like the Pete’s do. If so I am also glad to be in a new Mack.

    Talked to a guy in a Pete who said every time he runs the WV turnpike he gets sharp curve ahead and steep grade ahead warnings over the stereo speakers. He has to push buttons to get whatever he was listening to back on. That’s real safe.

    should'v kept my dang mouth shut. Got in yesterday(was at home for 6 days since my Mack was at a dealership with exhaust problems, had to use some personal days because of it), and Mac said, you get a new truck! I laughed and said, so much for 6 days at home for nothing now. Good thing is, won't be making the move until weekend, but gonna have the shop take out the passenger seat since the interior is the same size as the Prostar! GRRRRR!That's the one thing I'm not too happy about. Macks have some more room than the Internationals!

    uh, the whole fleet is going auto. I don't mind an auto. Only thing I do know is an auto is a little more of a 'B' to backup a tanker than a 53 dry van.

    supposedly we are going all International, with a few Pete's and Mack's left. Good thing is, it has a Cummings engine in it. Bad thing is, the inside is really small. It's hard for me to even move 2 steps in them, and I'm skinny!
