    What would be your dream truck? Any engine, any manufacturer, however you want it.

    For me it would be a long nose Pete with a 2000 flywheel HP (1.5 megawatts) C32, triple turbos (2 fixed turbos feeding 1 VGT), 18 speed manual, dual mitered exhausts, BrakeSaver, Jake Brakes, 180 inch custom sleeper, full gauges. Emissions items will be (those of you who read my emissions thread probably know this by now) an oxi-cat with a secondary air inlet and SCR system, both with electric pre-heaters, no EGR or DPF.

    One that never breaks down, gets decent mpg, can pull up a hill, and is paid in full. I dont give a #### about anything else.

    Got a 17' Cascadia with DD15 that's paid off and running great that I am particularly fond of, lol!

    But that wasn't your question.
    I would love to have a brand new W900 with a 3406e turned up to 550-600 hp with a 13 speed. A 74" sleeper and top of the line interior would be sweet!

    Ever since I drove them when they were brand new, I always loved the FLD 120 with a setback front axle.

    I found an owner operator spec FLD 120 with a blown engine (basically a classic with a set back front axle) and I put in a reman cummins big cam.

    I have exactly what I want and I love it.

    Perfect for what I do and perfect for me.
