Anytime, Me either, I've never seen one east of the I-71 as far as I can remember...I am to, but I don't know how that would look. I do know that TMC will be 100% Peterbilt fleet pretty soon company truck wise  :wink:

I think the day cabs i see around Jersey come from the OC plant in Kearny just off Fish House Road. Ever been in there Eric?  :?

Nice TMC bunch! The 388 in the last pic is my favorite. Looks great all cleaned up, with those longer shields on the stacks.  8-)

I've seen a handful of stepdecks, but that's been pretty rare.  We've had daycabs delivering to the local Home Depot  pretty regularly for the last couple of years (Pittsburgh - Bethel Park), but I don't know where they come from. 

Bill, where was the second picture taken?

No sir, not yet. But I have been to the Griffin Pipe in Jersey. Can't remember the towns name, but it was south of Bordertown.   8-)

That plant is in Florence off Route 130 along the river. Don't think you'll be going back there soon Eric; found this article about them shutting down production & layoffs.  :-(

Yeah Charlie the daycabs run out of Owens Corning in Kearny NJ, They started out with 6 trucks running dedicated for them. I think they are down to 2 running dedicated, they shipped the trucks out the flatbeds and 1 daycab still stay in our yard in Harrison NJ. I'll try and get a pic of one of the trailers they have a pic of the pink panther on the sides and Owens Corning on them.

Wow Charlie  :-o, I hate to hear that...The last time I was there, was back in the summer when I picked up a load of pipe and took it down to Louisville. It was pretty busy there at the time too. Things changed so fast  :-( ...I think the one in Coucil Bluffs is pretty slow right now too.

Thanks HippJr. I always thought they had more trucks than that up there. OC didn't look too busy when i went by it a few weeks ago & i didn't see one TMC truck around.

I think the Pilot in Lodi.
That would make sense given the angle of the picture.  I've been to that McDonald's in the background and seems to me there is an Arby's and maybe a Wendy's as well( :?).
