    My buddy was doing B trains tankers with Volvo D 13 engine and I shift as company driver and he loves it. Jakes and retarder are very poverfull, thats what he sad. Driving my volvo with 500 cummins and complaining about jakes, what he was used with i shift. Said it always shift right gear, recognize a hills and load, Eaton is a junk compare to i shift. Very smooth, good millage. Now he is going to buy brand new Volvo with I shift, so I hope I get a ride
