Thats a nice rig you got there. Definately the way to go. I think Im gonna look for a new one myself. When I can afford it. Been using one of the work trucks. But after nicking the front of the boat today on the dump bed, I think Im going to have to get a bigger personal truck..

When I sold new Pete's, we ordered 475 C15 and then flashed them to 550 at n/c to customer.

The one thing to check is your driveline and trans to make sure they are rated for 550-600hp. You may be out of luck.

I don't think you will be pulling 80,000 lbs though

Nice truck Gino! I drive by it everytime I go home. I think they are trying to get the dealership for the Freightliners

Thank you. They had ot there on consignment. I saw it there but bought it from the frieghtliner dealer that owned it. I'm sure it would have cost me $15k more if I bought it from the collection.

They have a white one there also. It is very nice, it dosen't have the wheels, grill or other gaudy stuff on it. Much more conservitive. They are asking $98k for that one. If you want I can get you in touch with him. Very nice people to work with.
