    Here’s a small inside shot. Just finished the instrument cluster. Don’t think I could ever go back to a factory interior.

    So do I. It's not all mack like the 99 but it does better off road and overall handles better than the 99.

    Mack sure had come a long way with these. Even though they weren't called "R" models, it was still the same cab. Mack R models were THE most popular truck in the 70's and 80's, but very few were road trucks. They were all dump trucks or ceeement mixers, and took a world of abuse. I've driven just about every truck made, road and off road, through some pretty tough conditions, and NOTHING compared to the R model Mack. Once they smoothed out the ride, they made great road trucks, as well. I wear a back brace today, thanks in part, to a R model Mack.
