Anybody have any personal experience with these trucks? I might be be getting a day cab at work or a new cascadia not sure yet. I like the styling of this truck it reminds me of the Generals in the 80's. I'd like to know if their good trucks or not.

Yes, in fact I do have one.  I started as an O/O in '93 with a 9300, another 9300 in '97, and got my '02 9900i in June of '01.  I have had good luck with it, just turned 710 thousand.  Mine is spec'd  with the 51 inch pro sleeper low roof, and has a 240 inch w.b. 22.5 rubber, 435hp C15 Cat with a 10 speed, and IH 40K rears on air.  I really havent had any major issues with it. I will tell you that it does not have the "solid" feel that the old IH's had, you know, a plasticy feel that a lot of new trucks have versus the old version.  The cab squeeks and rattles a little, and the mirrors shake more than the older trucks did, but other than that, runs good, drives good, goes down the road straight, no problems with the interior, no leaks, fairly comfy.  There are quite a pile of them out here on the road, I think most guys like them.  I think you would have good luck with one.  There is a picture of mine on here somewhere, maybe on the Truck Pictures thread, taken when it was new.
