    I was looking on Oakley Transport's Facebook page and noticed that in some of their pictures the truck in the background is a Peterbilt instead of a Volvo. The truck number P4545 is right below the red Peterbilt oval on the side of the hood.

    Does anybody know anything about this?

    Don't recall ever seeing anything other than Volvos. Now I am going to have to start paying more attention.

    I grabbed this screenshot from one of their slideshows.

    It would be awesome if they transitioned their fleet to Peterbilt tractors, particularly if they choose Cummins engines over PACCAR.

    Got so bad Prime Inc started getting Kenworths with X15s instead of the PACCARs. It was hard to believe at first

    The MX13 is a fine engine if you stay on top of everything. They’re about 600 pounds lighter than an X15. My last truck had 600k on it when I sold it, current one has just over 200k, and I haven’t had issues other than a couple sensors on my old one and an injector so far on my new one. But you pretty much need to stay up on maintenance and do everything when it’s supposed to be done. So I can understand why a company like Prime would go away from them if they had a bunch of people wanting to play owner operator but didn’t want to pay attention to the engine.

    Most don't because of the software required as opposed to the other engines.
