Yeah I love the T660 very roomy and nice inside and out. And it does spend a lot of time idling and a lot of mountain driving here. But that DEF **** has just made everything more complicating then it needs to be. It's only a matter of time before they start putting **** like that in cars.

the company that shares the same building with us (i don't work there anymore) hauls turnpike doubles from kc to wichita. 110' overall length. i think this combo is over length by about eight feet.

My truck next to a lifted 01-03 ranger with im assuming a spindle lift and 31" BFG's



Cant wait to get some 32" tires and install my spindle lift!

(No i did not actually park like that, its just for the picture)

edit: not sure why his tires look small and mine look slightly bigger. His 31"s were much bigger and didn't look nearly as disproportional. must be the angle

Very nice FLD! FLD's are my absolute favorite! One of these days, I want to buy one with a 70" condo sleeper and full fairings. Nothing but Detroit power, baby! :D Was it smoking white when the turbo blew? I saw a KW a while back in a town south of here rolling down the highway at about 15 mi/hr, blowing white smoke out of the stacks. I told the guy I was riding with "Yeah, his turbo's gone".

How do they manage to turn those 53' doubles? Do they only take certain roads when they pull those?

it was whitish grey and raining oil. the air charge cooler had a crack and the turbo had been over revving for some time. kw w900a's are my personal favorite. and i have actually come to love detroit power. i used to be all about cats, and i still am, but a big detroit ain't no slouch. this truck would pull anything you put behind it.
and those doubles are turnpike only, no backing and only from point of origin to destination. they have to be permitted for the exact route they are taking. i think i35 in kansas allows them and i 44 in oklahoma also allows them. there are probably other states, but i am not familiar.

Take off the grill, headlights, the chrome trim on the front fenders, get rid of the stack it takes up room in the bed for hauling. put side mount tool boxes if you need more then one...its a dually. needs the gooseneck available if needed. Or a fifth wheel hitch. A dually should do what it was meant to do...Most cases they should also be longbed....Shortbed workhorse. give me a break. Headacke rack is a plus for that sort of truck. throw crap in the bed without worrying about busting the back window. Thats what a farm truck/or work truck like that should look like. I love heavy duty bumpers like that on fullsizes though. I also hate when people intentionally put another color gas cap cover on there cars/trucks. or aluminum ones for that matter. The flames are G*y too.
