    1996 KW T600 No EGR no problems. I run ULSD fuel and add some special sauce to my fuel.
    Truck has 1.7 million Cummins N14 18sp
    Big Orange Julius looking house...love this thing.
    Previously I ran here with a smaller (110 inch sleeper) 1999 T600. That truck was Black and Green.
    I'll be in the yard tomorrow. I took a little time off since my last load at Mercer in 2010. If you've been in the industry a while you understand the same things I do...I don't want to run under my own numbers presently by choice not by necessity and I belong here with my Mercer Family. Can I squeeze my little punch buggy in someplace in the yard or should I make other plans??
     
    Driverdad Thanks this.

    I'm here parked in the RV section at the fair grounds. Plenty of room here. A lot of trucks already gone. Time right now is 10:23pm and there are trucks going round and round the fairgrounds. Is that part of the show or is someone doing demo rides this late?

    I've a 2014 evolution with DD15. Now that the temps are warming up it stays 8.5mpg with me running slow speeds, heavy and a lot of midwest. No problems, and I really like the DD15.

    09 international 450 cummins isx 13speed with 3.36 rears pulls in 7. Has the dpf I rode the emissions rodeo around 550k. I took her to cummins, my thinking was cummins motor who best to work on it. I was happy they fixed it up 1st time haven't been back since. I'm at 708k now. Be careful with these trucks, I spent 12k on that rodeo, but it's been the only issue everything else is solid. Did a clutch at 600k

    an out of frame overhaul means the engine is removed and overhauled and the engine block cleaned

    An in frame is overhauled wile attached an not as intensive an is also less money
