I don't know what the lure is Can Man. Why not run er' at 60mph and save the fuel! I guess not everybody is out to earn to money in this racket, but with such small profit margins you?d thing these guys would start smartening up.

PRICE OF FUEL IS ONLY GOING UP!? :|

I drive a (don't have any pictures) 1986 Ford LT9000 with a 350 Cat, 13 spd Eaton/Fuller and what I think are 3.70 or 3.90 rear ends (we are not quite sure). It pulls a 1977 or 1978 (can't remember) Arne's gravel end dump chassis with a new style 2001 Arne's box on it. The tractor is really beat but it still does the job.

Nice trucks Maniac! Its seems wierd to see 900L's with out the exhaust coming up the side as they usually come from the factory with. But I guess sometimes you gotta be different!

I drive this 1986 GMC General around the yard on Saturdays. I use it to drag trailers to the pumps to fuel the reefers or to bring em' inside the shop for servicing. It has a Cummins NTC Formula 350 and a 10 spd. Road Ranger. I have yet to get it out of 2nd gear!!!! :-D :-D
