New Rig:)

Just thought I would throw this out here for the fun of it.... I Bought a Tractor/Trailer
Still learning new things everyday and studying to take my CDL knowledge test within the next two weeks...

I bought a 2000 Freightliner Classic with the D-60 in it (Detroit engine) and a 48' aluminum flatbed for hauling our fabricated steel around the Northwest.
Gonna have another project to throw money at
LED lights here I come lol

What do you guys think

freightliners are nice, the D-60 is a good engine in the mid power range, gets the job done to say the least, its nice mated to a 13 speed eaton.

muffler delete and youll be in love with the D-60, honestly the best sounding engine when straight piped out dual stacks

worst thing with the D60 is that they like to eat cams every 300,000.

easy job to replace them, just a pain in the *** for the down time

Thanks!

Yeah it runs... Runs very good actually!
They will be giving it a tune up before it comes into my hands and they are cleaning/detailing the interior this week!
It served its life for it's whole life driving coast to coast and was at New York a few weeks ago... Came back Christmas Eve. I have No doubts about it not serving us well for our region's deliveries!

I am SOO going to delete those mufflers and straight pipe it when I find a good deal on some 7' or 8' Mitered stacks... 6 or 7" in diameter I think...

Downtime won't be an issue with us at all... we'll be using it one day a week, two or three weeks in a month.

if your state DOT requires mufflers, can con usually knock out the center of the mufflers and put a piece of straight pipe down threw the center of em
