    I went backwards because I like to work on my own stuff and the biggest frustration I had with the new truck was the limited amount of things I could do without techtool being involved. Plus you can't modify a D13. I plan on putting a PDI stage 1 turbo, performance exhaust manifold, high flow mufflers and a high flow charge air cooler.
     
    KB3MMX and bzinger Thank this.

    I admit. I am going to miss the rapid warm-up and cold weather performance of the D13. I hear the Series 60 can be a pain to start in the cold.

    What's your definition of cold? We never had much trouble starting the 14L Series 60's if they were plugged in. Even at -30 if they had 4 good batteries.

    Anything below freezing is cold for me. And this one is a 12.7L

    Mine starts just fine if it's been plugged in. I only plug it up if it's going to be below freezing.

    Since the engine is a 99, now you can use paper logs.

    If you don’t mind me asking, how many miles were on the truck and what did you wind up paying for it?

    The chassis has 1.4 million miles on it. The engine transmission and axles were rebuilt 200,000 miles ago with paperwork. I ended up paying 25k for the truck.

    That’s a good deal, you’ll make money with that truck.

    I have a 2001 VNL770 N14 500hp, 13 speed, 3.42, just turned 1 million, had it since 2004 and trouble free 99% of the time I’ve owned it.

    Take care of those lower fairings/skirts, Volvo says they are discontinued.

    You couldn’t get me to sell mine and get into a newer truck with all sensors and problems.

    they ended up giving me $25,000 for my 2013 which I probably could have gotten more but because someone's stupid decided to screw around with his exhaust system I was just happy to find someone who was willing to take it off my hands. Lol
