even has cab mounted beacon lights on stainless mounts, personally never saw this many gauges in a CH, my CL did not have this many and at the time I thought it was loaded.

Yeah but it is great find, can't turn great finds, played with the idea of keeping it, but then I thought about a driver other than me, and then the DOT, and then more BS, quit trucking for a reason, reasons are still there, but the truck will make a great piece for someone who is still trying, what's better a 98 that will run and is cheap to repair and buy or 150k plus and it doesn't run ???  even have video of it running but don't know how make it upload, but could e mail to prospective buyer.  Make offer no secrets here. even has onan diesel genset on back right now, power for your camper. Also have Chrome Shop Mafia seat that would look killer, matches interior color, no red seats in black cabs ??? seat came out of orange Superliner we sold a little back, went out with oem Mack seat.

one of the best riding trucks I have been in was a CH and it was on camelback. the cab mounts just absorbed alot of the road bumps

someone stole the drivers seat, that is a granite seat, they do that in our yard, truck comes in they see a seat they like and poof it's gone, putting end to that, tow trucks are going back to the junk yard, that will end the garbage and swiped parts. Ecm reading is in pics. all # match.

Axle forward with small diameter fuel tanks, aluminum air tanks, and a decent wheelbase.  What's not to love?

Weatherford truck, slow going out to job sites, are heavy trucks get way more hours than miles, figure it out, when it takes a month to get to CA. and you run every day the hours are out of whack with the miles, that is what happens when you drive 20 miles a hour if lucky.

We were In CA. putting on a set of new drive tires on a new Western Star, because Caltrans decided even though the tires were legal they would not be when we got where we were going , so we changed them out a little early, super hero truck driver heard a comment from mechanic about less than 20k on tires, driver went on tirade about Michelin tires being junk and not getting any mileage, shut up after learned truck was grossing 414k and no push truck, he should have inquired to what was going on before making comment.  CH is nice truck, if no one steps up then we will start to make it really nice then it will either cost a whole lot more or it will go move airplanes, speaking of, any one ever hear or seen a F14 Tomcat mover over the road, RI to Annapolis MD coming up, update every one later on date so you can avoid route, you will not get around it, state Patrol and Navy brass will accompany, last combat ready plane being moved from storage to Naval Acad. for display., history making move moving history, you can see plane if you google F14 Quonset  museum.

High five on a good find. We bought our (pretty clean) 1998 for $17,500 with, I think, around 800K miles.

 

427 HP?
