Got a brand new rig!

Thank god for the price of land these days...sold 25 acres last week and bought myself a little present yesterday

black '08 Pete 389 18 speed, tandem 46,000# RA 12,000# FA, Cummins ISX600:burnout 3.91, 63" flat top sleeper, air trac suspension, touch screen navigation thing (that I can't figure out how to work), full locking diff., and platinum class interior

Can't wait to get a load on it and get on the road...I'm thinking it will be a lot different than my '87 Pete 359 (which may go for sale soon, if I can get the nerve to get rid of the ol' boy)...Now I just wish I had enough money for a brand new possum belly and i'd be set ...but...I do have enough money left over for a digital camera, so i'll be sure to make a trip to town this week and buy one so I can get some pictures of this SOB in my garage...i'll also get some pictures of my PSD and the ol' 359 in case anyone wants to put in a bid on her

Sorry for all the ramblings...i'm just excited over the new truck

Sounds like you dropped some big bucks on the Pete. It don't say where you are from but I will be looking forward to the pictures.
Sounds like she may be long leged with that 18 speed and 3.91s. That 600 HP come-a-part should take it on down the road.
Good luck with the new truck. Can I drive it?:handguns: :handguns:
