    Workhorse is my favorite. They turn on a dime. Great feel on the road.

    Those PC's are far to clean. I use to rinse my truck off at my one pick up every day or two. You wouldn't be able to keep 360 degree's of visibility with all the road salt and grime from the dirt roads.

    The new 800's look like vans. Have yet to drive a new 800, 1000 or 1200. Only the p57 but I love them.

    I do like a good running 700 sprinter diesel... The clutch is nice and not all stiff...

    If you kick the tires the bike falls over!

    I love how the engine seems to purr on the new freightliners(?).

    Has anyone else noticed that there are two models each for the 6-, 7-, 8-, 10-, and 1200s, one from Workhorse and one from Freightliner.

    On my route I drive 1300s. I have not seen a direct replacement vehicle among the newer models. My primary vehicle is a 2007 Workhorse.

    Kicking the tires is not part of the pretrip.

    FTFY

    My impression of your post is it never was part of the pre-trip. I think most pre - Integrad drivers would be surprised to learn it isn't anymore.

    The answer is three:

    1- Really OLD. (Keep on a'rollin')

    2- Really Crappy. (New stuff falling apart like junk)

    3- Oddly Designed. (Poor back lighting, bad dash design, etc)

    It's not? How do you know if the inside tire is full.
