I love those FL Kentucky-built pups with that livery. If only it had a Ford CL COE pulling them!

I guess I'll post these in this thread as well. I spotted a whole bunch of these ugly little Hinos on their way west on I-80 this summer, probably close to twenty in all. These two were caught on I-80 in Wyoming.

Last weekend, I saw two of them on the hwy 20 returning to the Levis plant. Have a look at the trailer, it is not your regular 48 or 53 footer, but two straight truck boxes piggybacked the way a container move on a chassis. The one at the front is loaded backward on the chassis and you can see its door near the truck cab. It looks like they stopped to transfer the trailer contents to the straight trucks and just interchange the boxes now. I gotta see the lift or the crane they use for these switches.

No cranes are needed. They are swap body units. On the bottom rail of each body, there are dark "squares". These "squares" are where the legs for the body are stowed when the body is loaded on a carrier. The legs simply slide out, drop down and are locked in place while the loading/unloading of the box is taking place.
To be honest, I didn't know Frito Lay had swap bodies! Good shot!

They probably have doors on both ends so they can be loaded without being removed from the chassis.  It looks like the chassis has a pintle hook on the rear, judging from the shape of the frame.
It's a Mack thing. you wouldn't understand.....

Straight van IH delivering to Wally World -Cerritos CA. Food vendors including Micky D deliver thru a side door from this alley.  Not much light and no place to park so stopped long enuff to get the shot thru the windshield--fortunately no other traffic showed up .
