I'm wondering why nobody paints the bumper cover, it sticks out like a sore thumb. Seen a couple so far and they look ok but I think a matching bumper cover would definitely improve the aesthetic value.

Nice truck. I think it would look even better if the side skirts were paint black to match the front bumper. Or paint the front bumper white to match the side skirts.

Without the lower bumper fairing, I really like the looks of the new one. Nice catch Paul!

Shot this one on I-79 Saturday.  I'd imagine these will be commonplace very shortly.

Just curious if we're going to see new trailers with that fresh logo on it too, Swift could really use some of those. That new Cascadia looks good Mike, nice shot.

partsman88, you mentioned about new trailers in this design. I don't know how long Swift has had this design, because I've never seen it on any trailers, but I was wondering the same thing. I really like the current design, which was first introduced in October 2008, with trailer 082300. I have the trailers numbered into the 182900's, and I have a 182723 which was manufactured by Hyundai, in September 2017. I haven't seen any new Swift trailers since 2017. If and when Swift purchases some new trailers it will be interesting to see if they are in this new design, and how it will look. The current design is my favorite. I mean man, it just looks way too good, and it might be hard to top.

Here's the same 200948 again, with Great Dane 135837 which was built in September 2013. I needed this trailer as for when it was built. Also, I have a month change in the 135800's, with September going into August. Yes that's right. I have this one here, 135837 for September, and 135862 being built in August. The month of August continues up to at least 135971, and then I have trailer 136016 being built in September.
