No Jake Brake and it has the stock Donaldson muffler and tall stack so it's really quiet in the cab. I might switch it to under-chassis exhaust to avoid any soot on the deck of the boat.
The FLD112 and FLD120 units are equipped with a lot of soundproofing which helps a lot.
Barb just went to Toledo to pick up two brand new air-ride seats and one is installed already. the other will be in and plumbed this weekend.
Hopefully I can get some pictures up this weekend.
Yes Mark, I plan on leaving the fitfth wheel on the frame so that we can deliver your Ocean Express this spring.

Dave
Congratulations on the find. I know you have been looking for along time but do you think that's enough power to pull that old Cig? I understand those things are heavy

I don't know but we'll give it a try. The engine tag says it makes 310 horsepower and 1150 ft.lbs of torque at 1600 rpm. That oughta do it but it ain't a super-duty Powerstroke.

Truck looks great. I'll pay you to tow my boat to my house if you would like. I think you know where its at.

Nice truck! You are going to need a bigger boat to go with the truck.
