    Very true. I've seen those ring kits for flat tops and the old style aero sleepers.

    But if I had a choice, I'd rather spend a little less on converting a double bunk to an aero flat with the conversion kit sold here:

    Kenworth 72" Flat Top Conversion - Talladega Fiberglass

    They even make a flat top conversion for the 86"

    you sure you wouldn't rather have something newer? like a 15 W900 with cummins and 18 speed and 3:55s?

    Maybe if it were a glider (with a non fitzgerald built engine).

    I want to thank you all for looking out for me. Much appreciated.

    Just an update. I purchased a W900. Had most everything I was looking for. I’m excited and can’t wait to pick it up. :D

    Nothing that a pony motor can’t make up for. :)
