    Good morning all.

    Looking to purchase an 1996-2001 Kenworth W900. (Short hood B or L is ok)

    63 or 72” Aerocab flat preferred.

    Do not want the old style (non aero) cab and flat top sleeper with the small hole, as I’m tall and it’s just not comfortable. (Some 1995’s came with the Aerocab flat; I’d consider that)

    Cat, Cummins N14 and Detroit 12.7 or pre egr Detroit 14L are fine (pre e-log)

    10, 13, 15 or 18 speed

    3/8’s” thick frame preferred

    AG 400 or other air ride setup like low air leaf conversion, 12k and 40’s or 46’s ok.

    With or without PTO and Wet kit.

    Pm me if you have anything available. Much appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Vampire

    Thanks. Appreciate you keeping me in mind. That is the “aero” sleeper with that blasted small hole. Can’t slide the seat far enough back.

    600hp on a fresh overhaul with a 60 series, that would definitely void any warranty on the engine since they don’t come with that kind of HP from the factory.

    Ahhh fair enough. Im a pete guy, never been around too many of the kennys so i thought that was the case but wasnt sure. Ill keep an eye out though. Been looking for a 359 with an E motor or a 579 glider thats not more then it was new. If i see anything ill kick them your way.

    That said try Google Maps i know for a fact they had a 90s era kenny on the lot last time i was home. Though that was 12 weeks ago so unsure if its still there. But they may be able to get one.

    I entirely missed that. I read it as 500 lol. Like i told vampire i was only browsing. Only remimbered it because it was a nice looking rig but discarded it since its way too tall for what i do. Lot of places i go are 12'10 max and a few are at the 12'6 line, id rip the roof off.
