Title: 9800 HighRise SetFwd Axle still puttin' along
Post by: IowaSuperTrucker on June 09, 2015, 07:28:51 PM
Everyone...meet Virgil.  He used to be an owner operator for Dart Transit...always loved his truck!  It's just cool...9800, high rise, set forward axle, exposed tanks and a big animal catcher on the front.  Now he's leased on to Polman Transfer from Wadena MN, way closer to where he lives.

Glad to see one still running, and in great condition too! The SFFA high rises were rare enough when they were new, and now 9700's and 9800's in general are few and far between in the states. So many of J.B. Hunt and SNI's trucks were exported, and the rest seem to have either been parked or are in bad shape, so it is a nice surprise to see one of these still looking sharp 8)
