  Low mileage, hard use.  Should be an adventure.

less than 200k on chassis, but cab looks like last three wars were fought in it.

12.7l detroit, 8LL, and omg 4.88s.  Plenty of power in top gear, but not much speed.

Now to squeeze all required items into a 36” sleeper.

anyone need a one line wet kit?

Howdy Exile,

It's good to see another Pete, on the forum, 4.88:1 gears, I don't think you will have any problems towing whatever it is you want and then some.


2001 Peterbilt, 379, Known As "Semi-Sane II", towing a 2014 Voltage 3818, 45 foot long toy hauler crammed full of motorcycles of all types.  Visit my photo web site where you will find thousands of photos of my motorcycle wanderings and other aspects of my life, click this link. http://mr-cob.smugmug.com/

Thanks all, have learned a lot from you all already, and I expect to ask a lot of questions.

already had 40 gals of fuel stolen, and have owned the truck 4 weeks.  Off to a good start, costs money even when I don’t buy anything :-0
