CRA Trucking - Landing NJ - The ELITE New Jersey Dump Fleet
« on: April 20, 2011, 06:43:21 PM »
I'm sure Charlie and a bunch of you East Coaster's know these guys and what they are all about.  I grew up in the Albany NY area and would see these guys all week long.  Quite possibly one of the last remaining ALL Freightliner Classic fleet out there on the road.  Most of their trucks are pretty much chromed out and have some sort of fancy paint scheme.  I was in New Jersey on business last week, had a few extra hours to kill on Friday afternoon so I grabbed a Dunkin Donuts Coolatta, drove south on I-287 to I-80 to the town of Netcong/Landing and found their facility.  After asking the owner if he minded me snapping some photos of their awesome units, I got to it!

Here are some of the photos I was able to grab.  3 of their 4 Classic flattops that have the PACCAR Seminole paint scheme of course weren't there...in fact I passed 3 of them on the way to the yard.  You can see the 1 seminole scheme'd truck in the background of their show truck.

















I take that back...they have 1 non-Classic setback front axle dump.




Anyone have any others?

Wow i'm jealous. :( One of the (many) fleets that have been pretty slippery for me to catch even though they're from my state. ;D I've got a few so so shots but nothing to rival your catches. >:( :P j/k :D

I figured Friday would be a gamble, either the yard would be full or they all would still be out on the road....luckily half of their fleet of 32 were there.

Cool looking fleet for sure! And some time well spent there, too, Mike! ;D

One of my favorite fleets, they've added a W9OOL to the fleet.. Seen it awhile back and thought it might have been a O/O, but the driver says it's a company truck.
