    I don't like the super 10 and I don't want to go backwards in years, just stay put or find something pre-def that is around the same year

    2008 with 200,000 miles? What did it do, drive from the yard to the mechanic and back the whole time? I bet it did if it's got a yellow motor ...

    I wish they still made that model. Looks a lot nicer than the Volvos IMO. The new T680 looks pretty nice too though.

    It actually was used around Atlanta, so it probably was just stopped in a traffic jam for most of the time...LOL
    Just used in the state of Georgia, All maint. records from when the truck was new until present

    You must not be familiar with the 2008 trucks with yellow motors in them ... unless you can pick it up for what you could get for it if you scrapped it, don't buy it. Trust me I had one.

    I drove a 2009 t800 with a Cat. Ran like a champ until about 275k miles. Then it was non-stop problems. So much so that I gave it up and got back in a 2007.

    Stop and go traffic and/or not running at highway speeds is one thing that will kill a dpf on a truck.
     
    Grijon Thanks this.

    Hell, mine was a team operation that ran from Ontario to Texas and back. All highway, and lots of problems. The cat engine was much worse than the Cummins or Detroit first generation motors.
