Interesting, a little different but you're right, they didn't ruin it, with the right specs could look awesome!

I don't like any of the steel cab trucks with body control modules in them. And they molested the hx cab with the cheap steel cab door handles and an interior like a minivan. If they made the hx a glider I'd be first in line
its a binder thing you just wouldnt get it...

I really like the Lonestar's, I'm glad they didn't mess with the exterior to much on them, But, I am not a fan of those mirrors

 Confession time!

 Every time I see or hear the word Lonestar, I think of this guy, The Lone Star, and I laugh to myself. :) :)

I think that is where Cat really missed the boat with their version. They offered a glider right as they were ceasing production. And when I inquired about getting one it was a lot more difficult process than what Western Star, Freightliner, Pete and KW will do for you.

If they offered turn key 3406 and C15 powered Cat trucks all along, like those others do,  I think they would have sold a pile of new trucks.

That's not a bad thing, Every time I see a Lonestar, I think of the evil clown truck from the movie Maximum Overdrive
