Sweet! I would love to have that. You hardly ever see extreme high-performance Mack engines. Someday I'm going to take a Mack/Scania ENDT-475 and put twin turbos and a built P-pump and totaly modify it to make like 800 HP. That would be cool.

Shouldn't you be sleeping or Shagging right about now? I think BTR needs an R model set up like this one, some cock could come drive for you.

Mirror, mirror on the truck,

The dogs face wrong, who gives a fuck,

I do!! says Rob this must be right,

improper mounting, such a pitiful sight!

Shit, I best quit while I'm ahead.

:clap:That's some of the best poetry I've ever read Uncle Rob. Another thing I've heard about is mud flaps. I guess there's supposed to be a right and a left mud flap, so the dogs match the ones on the mirrors.

Actually I have an old set of rubber flaps from the 70's in my shed that have dogs facing either direction so they both look the right way, I havent seen any since I bought these and Im not letting them out of my sight.
