New mack titan glider with all the bells and whistles and wired up for my mack motor would be perfect. Swap it out of my truck and be on the road in a brand new truck without all the bs lol

Still can't see why you can't order a Mack truck without a drive train. Call it a glider or a truck without a drive train. (Whatever) . As its coming down the line put the rear of the frame on the robot dollies and drive it out the door. Not that hard! Like the diet commercial Nutra-System says " You eat the food you loose the weight. Its not that hard"! Volvo should allow Mack to have that autonomy. Why should Volvo care? As small as the glider market is this shouldn't disrupt the factory assembly line that much.  After all different models and chassis run down the same line.:huh:

if you go with Fitzgeralds you can go 2 routes with the detroit. one is rebuild by Fitzgeralds, and costs a little less i think. The other is a factory detroit rebuilt and has a factory warranty you can take to any detroit dealer like inland/interstate for warrany work.  the mulch guy i haul for has 2 with the factory rebuilt and has had no problems

Storkmack. What about the new Pinnacle(CHU)(new interior) with choice of MP7/8 - Allison, M-Drive or Mack manual and new truck warantee. Just a thought:huh:

We are currently running 5 2012-2014 CHU's with MP8's and M drives.   Love the trucks but all the issues on the emission side of the motor equal down time.   So we have 2 , 00' CH's that cover for the new trucks while they are down.   Parts pricing is nuts, which every brand has that problem, but if you can take the unnecessary down time out of the pictur, I think you would be ahead of it with the glider.

I think if the Freaken was to EPA stop  and  Evaluated HOW MUCH waste and pollution they have created by  Forcing truck makers to create 5 year throw away trucks  the cost to the environment having to recycle this crap  far surpasses  the emissions they are trying to prevent!

But sure helps generate revenue  for the truck shops!  Be proud your keeping others working while going broke! :rolleyes:

Problem with the guys I use is the fact that they insist that you have diagnostic adapter and some repair experience, but I can tell you for sure that they are the best money can buy.

Reason I am saying that is because I re did couple of bad delete tunings done somehwer else, and had nothing but good luck with them.

Also they can do the OBD Macks and Volvos.
