20 Frt 30 rear? Geez that's a heck of a single axle what are you planning to gross? A PX8 I'm guessing at 350hp so that makes it a Cummins 8.3 or 8.9 I can't remember anymore.

It's a heavy unit empty, it's a split body so twice as many packer parts. This week we'll see what the weights are, and the kids are swinging off the back like we still do in RI. We're old school, still using carry barrels and going in backyards for the trash/recycling. It's got the paccar 350hp and yes the fronts are 315 80r22.5

My 2011 freightliner is bad like that too you cant hardly see the engine for all the crap mounted on each side of it, I sure do like mechanical trucks!

There is a ton of crap under the hood, one good thing is the filters are accessible....

Truck hits the scale @33,620 empty, works out perfect for the size of the body. Ill post some "finished" pics after we get some vinyl on it.
