Do You Think Mack Will Ever Again Build a Truck Like This 2020 C500?

Recommended Posts

Brian 71583; Brian you say ' Don't complain, they won't build what they won't buy. They won't buy because they don't offer a big bore engine. Also they don't promote heavy haul in their marketing tool bag (website sales brochures etc.) so most prospective buyers don't even consider Mack.

It's a Volvo problem.

Sure steel can crack around the mounting bolt holes, but I find they stand up better off road. The edges of the fenders don't get chewed off where they rub like the fiberglass and plastic ones do. And the grills are tougher.

Nothing fights rust like a good steel hood and fenders.

Oh well. Everyone has their preferences. Just like how I buy steel Kubota tractors and not plastic Deeres.

Steel hoods on off road trucks don't get all the spider web cracking all over the fenders from the stones coming off the tires. It cost me $4000 to have a hood painted here and have it rubber lined underneath to try and stop the spider webbing.
