How ya digging them SS drives?
Not many of our still have them. there stacking up in the back row to be sent out into the commoner world mostly.

Haven't run a set yet.

Rumor mill (guys bullshitting on the ready line in sub zero weather for all that's worth) says Bentonville is considering a brand change to Kenworth, cuz of all the technology Freightliner seems to want to shove down people's throats.

Wouldn't it be something of my predictions all came true and we really have reached a point where the amount of technology that can be beneficial has been reached, and is now tipping the wrong way...

I'd quit driving and become a psychic to the trucking industry. I'd get a booth in a truck stop and do readings. West Memphis Petro maybe. Ontario California even better.

"Jethro....I sense that by your body odor, the pattern of your missing teeth in alignment with the pee boytle formation in the back row, fingerless gloves and the proximity of your wallet chain to the floor, your pants are gonna fall down before you reach the buffet.

No, I don't wanna touch your palm...I just know...trust me. That'll be 75.00 please. "

They already have KW's at some DC's. London runs Pete's, St James (?) has KW's I think. Last year Rosser said it had to do with closest support. I know most of Texas is KW or Pete.


I know Freightliner has been working closely with Bentonville to get both the Cummins and Detroits dialed in. I do not like them. The sleeper is to small.

...awful lot of vertical space you don't use. Lots of cab 10 feet above the frame. I think that's another reason my friend shuts down for wind all the time.

Course I'm used to mid roof W900s where you step down (never figured that out either) into the sleeper and those are even smaller...

A T680 wouldn't break my heart...

End of Work Week.

The bad news @Sinister is it is what you think unless they let you beg off. And they won't.

Actually I'm told a 6am start Christmas Eve, roll home when they decide I'm done for the day, then my normal start time to resume on Monday.
Lotta miles on the grampa truck, but I'll take it!

I used to haul INTO Smithfield.

Sitting unloading a dry van watching renderings come off a conveyor across the lot. Chunks of flesh into a end dump.

Yummy!

I've hauled out of Smithfield plants before.

It was probably expired by the time it was even loaded.

I refuse to haul out the one in Tar Heel, NC.

It takes ten hours just to drop & hook there. :mad:
That dump is a total pit. The one in Smithfield VA isn't any better.
