Looks good! Great photo of it too Gary. I'm surprised Averitt stopped using doubles in its LTL fleet, I would think that would be a more efficient way of doing it, but I'm not the one leading the company so....

Nice shots Paul.
YRC are not being very aggressive with de-logo-ing their trailers.
How long has this been now?

Very nice catches Paul! Both look cool, especially liking the new Volvo in their livery.

I didn't even realize I had caught a new Volvo in the YRC combo until I looked at the image at home on the computer.

I'm not sure, but this Central rig shot yesterday in Pittsburgh looks to have something new going on with the trailer.  I don't believe I've noticed that style of the exterior metal bars before.

I got a new truck on Monday, a Peterbilt 579. 

I miss my Cascadia, which was more comfortable with the extra legroom and wider seats.  Feel cramped in the 579, which has very little storage.  Cummins power, column mounted shifter with integrated jake brake selector.

May have to work into this one, not impressed yet.

Not anymore, I'm on a turn with Fargo in N. Sioux City, SD.  They send 2 drivers with triples and we send 3 with doubles. After trailer rearrangement we all go home. 

I'm still fighting the Pete, hard seat and no storage on top of the cramped cab (front to back, my seat is against the back wall) is making this gray haired man sore when I'm getting home.  Especially my tail bone.
