    no need. extended day cab will offer all you need.
    this way wb stay at 194inch, it saves weight too.
    in scandinavia you can see sleeper cabs on mixer too.

    things i always go for on any construction truck is:
    -straight front axles (not cranked)
    -hub reduction
    -spring suspension (unless someone really insist on air)

    this chassis weight 22000 lbs and it is missing construction tires (at least on rear), but it is common in germany to use regional tire on construction truck as they make like 80000km per year.

    I suppose you only invest that much $$ in a special and expensive truck like concrete pumper etc.
