RowdyRebel Posted June 2, 2008 Share Posted June 2, 2008 I've been driving one sized vehicle or another for pay since I turned 18, and for the last several years, I've wanted my own truck. After looking at a couple trucks that just didn't fit the bill, I finally found one that worked for me. It is a 2001 Mack CH613, with the gold bulldog up on the hood. It's got the E7-460 w/Jake, T2180B transmission, and Mack rears geared 4.17 on air ride...and 11R24.5 tires. The only thing I wasn't too thrilled with was the wheelbase. I had been looking for something in the 215" (+/- 15") range....this one measures in at 240"....on a DAYCAB!!! But, with only 261,300 miles on the odometer and a clean bill-of-health from the Mack dealer, I went ahead and bought it. (I bought the truck at an independent shop...had the Mack dealer 35 miles away inspect the truck for me...including a run on the dyno...to be sure it was in good mechanical condition). The big tires and long wheelbase sure gives it a great ride....but the turning radius So, now I drive my own truck, leased on to the company I had been with as a company driver for nearly 2 years...So is that a big enough Mack to be posted here?
