Sapp Bros. is exit 278
Fedex is at 5601 Holly street right across from Rac. which is next door to Navajo if you're interested.

Yes at one time they did.  I saw a Swift blue Century with 19.5" tires about a year ago.  It was a bobtail unit.  Other than that one, I dont see many that low driving around.  It actually looked pretty neat!  You can bet the trailer has the same size tires for maximum cube.

Have a good day!

I found where Swift moved to in Denver. I don't have an exact address but they are  on the south side of I70 and a block or two east from Sapp Bros. Take the Quebec exit(278) south a block to Smith Road go left, pass Wal Mart then the next left, over the tracks follow it around to the left again and it will take you right to Swift.

ddot430:

If you're down by the Swift yard in Denver you're in the same general area as Navajo, Sapp Bros. Truckstop and Fed Ex.  Have fun burning up the film.

And about the little tires.  As far as I know they are phasing out the 19.5's and just using the 255/75 22.5's for their low pro trucks and trailers.  This allows them to pull the maxi-cubes east of the Mississippi where the max hight is 13'6".

Oh, I did - Went to Sapps first, I had to follow a Swift truck to find the yard.  I got some FLD120 pictures.  Before getting Sapps I saw all the Shenider COE " love them COE" park alot a side street.  Looked like the hauled out of the GM warehouse.  I got pictures of them too.  I got freeway pictures of a Fedex truck.  I had a ball
