  1. In 2008 the Vision became the Pinnacle the cab was slightly larger and the Mp engines and seventh injector regen came about for emissions.
  2. Been driving with it for 6 years, distance alarm gets annoying in heavy traffic but to used to the adaptive cruise when I get in my personal vehicle without it I forget how to drive with cruise on. You do have to relearn driving with it but used to it now.
  3. I guess the set back axle ones are Anthems the Pinnacles are axle forward.
  4. Didn’t the Anthem replace the Pinnacle?
  5. Sensor needs changed we go thru a lot of them.
  6. UPS wouldn’t buy them if they cost more. Get a big fleet discount.
  7. This was a bobtail figured they were pulling trailers during the day.
  8. I saw you guys had a truck in our yard in Palatine last week.
  9. Engine symbol light only for emissions issues. Lightning bolt means electronic malfunction.
  10. KW and Freightliner are 10k cheaper than Mack so brown looks at bottom line.
  11. Dohrn has about 20 new Anthems sitting at the dealer in Davenport Iowa right now.
  12. All I see for them is 680’s and Cascadias as well. Hell Old Dominion and YRC passed me the other night both in 680 Kenworths.
  13. Kenworth and Freightliner were way cheaper on the bid plus rumor was company didn’t get order in on time with Mack last year. Our Kenworths at our building have been a nightmare the Freightliners not much better. I keep turning a new one down and stay in my CX613 mdrive. Been very reliable. After the disaster of a peak we had, according to management, wonder if we’ll get any new trucks this year.
  14. Straight thru in the trans versus changing direction three to four times.
  15. 2.64 shouldn’t matter, isn’t that why the transmission has gears?
  16. Been dealing with that Bendix system on mine for three years. Pretty immune to it now
  17. And they are higher prices now than kenworth or freightliner. I saw yrc and old dominion running new t680’s now.
  18. The super terminal on 294 in Hodgkins got Obama to pretty much pay for a LNG fueling setup. Earth City MO uses LNG and I know Omaha runs CNG
  19. UPS getting Kenworths and Freightliners now. KW was lowest bidder on trucks by 8k a truck.
  20. And be breaking the law in the process as emissions have to meet year of truck unless titled as a glider. But only illegal if you get caught 😂
