    My condolences to you and your family @otherhalftw

    Thats a good looking ride there @singlescrewshaker !

    The shop still hasn’t pulled the head on mine, so nothing new on my end. Been looking at some trucks, but just can’t justify it. I love the specs on mine, just wish she was out of the shop.

    Houston today. Grabbed a crazy good paying load of 2x4 lumber to North Little Rock to deliver in the morning. Gotta Toss the straps and tarps on and hit the road.

    This would bother me. They’re going straight down the road. That has to be hell on the trailer wheels and tires.

    I looked at the same one.....lol.
    Tell the truth, I'm frigging terrified of Def trucks. Everybody I know that has one has nothing but troubles out of them. Those who don't are the guys I know that recycle their trucks every 4 or 5 years. There are alot of nice t800s out there in a price range I'm willing to pay. It's just the engine choice that scares the crap outta me.

    Edit: alot of nice t800s in Canadia. I would like a Canadian spread on the drives. Makes it easier to work on.

    I have a Cummins 2250 in mine and although she is given me fits now, she runs really well when healthy. Sounds like you’re in a tough spot as well. I wish I had a kitty in mine, but the price of gliders is mind blowing.

    Not a huge fan of def trucks either. Sad part is that's what causes all the problems seems once the weight falls off its fine. The engine it's self seems to be great. Just not the crap bolted to it.

    I can definitely attest to that. After mine fell off, it was a whole different machine. Much more reliable.

    Other than some leaking fittings the paccar has been relatively trouble free not counting the dpf
