No new Roadway's have passenger seats.  Mine has one, but it was bought used from Ryun Leasing.  The road drivers with their radio boxes and luggage do not like tractors with passenger seats.  I have seen road tractors go out with passenger seats and mysteriously come back without them :mrgreen:

Yellow 8600 on I-5 today.

UPS Freight side curtain trailer and UPS Freight pulling Ferguson 48 foot dry van, neither are a surprise to me as i've known about them, just something i've never personally seen.

Did you catch that 8600 running L/H Nate? There's a rare one I see running pups all the way up to the WA/Can border from time to time.

UPS Freight International's 9200 AM/FM/CD 450 Cummins All air ride pwr mirriors signature foglights 10spd? NO Pass seat of course and no Jake.  Painted Battleship grey and brown. Running from Harrisburg PA to Jane Lew WV looks just like the UPS 9200 heard they got quite a few on the first delivery. There are pictures on another site but I won't post the link untill one of the MODS say it's ok.

I believe that is the 9400.

What I dont get is why they would spec' the Volvo's out with 385 horse and no jakes, then buy a few of the higher end IH's with 450 horse. I dont think I will believe it until I see a picture of the plate on the motor.

That's what I thought too but since there was no markings I could'nt tell for sure. Like I said there is one coming to Jane Lew everyday so the chances of my catching this guy should be pretty good. I know one thing that is one sharp looking truck with a set of matching trailers and he is out of Harrisburg PA so maybe John B. can see if he can find out for sure. I know when they started getting the new sleepers for SSD which I got one of the first one's in 03 it only had a 400 cummins in it and the day cabs were still getting 350's so it does'nt make any sense to me of course nothing they ever did made any sense to me which is why i'm where I am today.

The highest Overnite ever put power was those 435 Cummins in the IH 9100's that they bought between 00-03, everything else was 350-400, and were penny pinchers now more than ever, so it just doesn't make sense to order a 331 385 horse trucks with no jakes, then a few 450 horse trucks, especially different manufactures. Oh well, Overnite just doesn't make sense.
