    I like the looks of them, but to rich for my blood... And then we have the emissions. I'll stick with my open source Cummins. It is paid for. ;-)

    That's a single bunk right?

    That Volvo interior is better than a 579 pete. But is there a double bunk option?

    Correct.

    There is room for a double bunk Superior runs singles but I imagine Mack offers one.

    Those hood mirrors are not welcome. Whoever stuck them there put em in really bad spots.

    The vertical chrome is not to my taste. I would get a can of spray paint and black em out.

    Also the hatches inside the cab up top. You need to find a way to put a positive lock on the hatches on the outside so that no matter what those #### things do not fly open and dump whatever inside out.

    The smart wheel with all the buttons inside unnecessarily increases cost. You would think that you have plenty of dash space for the toggles.

    I hate to be picky. I like macks and some of the things in there are nice. However they try too hard in some areas.

    Way too much plastic, can you imagine the squeaks and rattles that would have after about a million miles, it'd drive me nuts.
