Here's a picture of the type of ODFL 9100 I'm always seeing around here, and they're in Paul Kane's area now too.  Looks like they're using them for city power.  Thanks to Hank for snapping the photo. :-D

Spotted these new USF Reddaway Prostars yesterday rolling Westbound on I-84 towards Portland, OR at Mile Post 102.  I also saw another set that had 2 USF Reddaway Tandem axle daycabs on it as well.

Funny, I was thinking the same with those Prostars,  "where is Dave's"? Ah, but would Dave want a fancy new truck?

Nah, I think Dave's like me, we take the million mile club tractors. He shared the first Prostar with us, and a Volvo too, so he gets the gold star for that.

Josh, I looked for anything that could have been Priority, but it was a ODFL tractor with a ODFL trailer. Have any of the Priority rigs gone under the spray gun yet?

I know we're quick at repainting the newer UW tractors after the buyout almost 2 years ago, but I haven't heard about any Priority trucks losing their Swift look-a-like stripes!

Minus that, add black wheels and UPS logo's, take off the IH emblems, and castrate it to 370 horse and you have a UPS truck.

I can understand - to a point - why the companies govern the trucks. But you would think they would leave the power output alone, so you aren't struggling in the hills so much. Seems like lower available power would hurt mileage more than help it.

I'll give you a little mpg facts that I have in my brain, my old 9100, it was used in Reno, Reno turns all their line tractors up to 460 for Donner, I got lucky and got one of those, when we merged, Overnite ordered all trucks back down to 435 on the west coast, with a 65 mph govern, Motor Cargo didn't govern, just whatever the tractor topped out at was what you got. With 460 on motor I was getting in the 7 range, when they castrated it, it was getting a good 1/2 mpg worse, plus a gear lower on the hills. If its any better, well I have my opinion on that, if it saves money, well UPSF and I both have an opinion on that, is it going to change a damn thing, nope. :|
