    Absolutely and another guy went home for lunch and didn't set the brakes and the truck ended up in someone's living room!!

    Er... that microwave indicates 120 volt house power availible. Taint run that on 12 volts not with the way I nuke my *&^% at home here. And that flat screen TV? It's gonna slide right off the first curve you hit. I think they propped it there for display.

    I see the small windows, they need tinting. or one way out vision for privacy. And pray tell how is the upper bunk going to enjoy the movie too? Not all teams are hubby and wifey....

    Here is a promo video. Gives you a better view of the storage on the inside...I do think those hood mirrors are weird the way their mounted.

    I love the look, but I want to see the midroof option.

    I was reading that the MP8 is now going to be common rail intention, hopefully that'll solve the horrible injector design they have now.

    The MP8 with the common rail fuel system and the new piston design has been in trucks since January of this year. So far so good is what I’ve been told.

    What's the issue with the injectors?

    Bad design. They maybe last 400,000 if you're lucky. My original injectors lasted 821,000. The replacement set lasted 78,000.

    I share a terminal with QC and their having all sorts of injector issues. (12-13 years)
    There trading in the mack's for Freightliner.

    None of our Macks have adjustable arm rest on drivers side. All they have is armrest on door. I absolutely won't drive them as you end up sitting ####eyed with left arm higher and offset from your body. Sit like that long enough and you cause serious damage to nerves in neck and shoulder. It gets diagnosed as Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.
    and the truck looks like a kitchen appliance like the rest of the class 8's

    It kinda has a look of a bulldog especially the front facia and the mirrors look like dog ears.
