Sweet ride! Thanks for the pics!

Yes it still needs a good cleaning and polish but I’m in Texas, what is this winter ❄️ thing you speak of ? Does the weather actually get cold ?

Lol I'm so looking forward to winter this year -- not! At least it's what I grew up with, though.

Yes a company man

Are you a company driver? Sweet ride. The sleeper compartment (my foyer/kitchen/den/living room/bedroom) has a window?? Nice.

Hilariously enough, I had to put effort into it to see that it wasn't the same truck. After identifying different numbers in an enlarged pic I then started spotting a couple minor differences. They looked the same to me. =)

Same. I can always tell the LTs from the ProStars because the LTs have abnormally large bumpers.

I updated but yes they are very similar. The first thing I spot is the (fake) chrome on the mirrors and door handles. I do like the solid windows (no split fake vent window) on the doors. We updated the Qualcomm and in my opinion that was one of the best things. Other than that new truck smell.

Qualcomm:

Omnitracs (a.k.a. Qualcomm) is a satellite-based messaging system with built-in GPS capabilities built by Qualcomm. It has a small computer screen and keyboard and is tied into the truck’s computer. It allows trucking companies to track where the driver is at, monitor the truck, and send and receive messages with the driver – similar to email.

Hi Parrothead,

How are you liking the LT?

I went to Sage earlier this week for drug testing and registration. I head to school next week. If everything goes well, I should get my CDL a little before Christmas. I don’t know what the orientation schedule will be around the Holidays but I’m hoping to be in Cuba by January.....

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Deke so far so good. I haven’t had any problems at with it. Engine brake is a lot better imo than in the previous models. They added a cabinet behind the passenger seat but that didn’t help me any as that is where I kept my cooler. So now it’s kind of pushed out in the walkway a little. Congratulations on getting your school started.

I dig those red trucks. Got a brand new Cascadia myself. The engine brakes are amazing. No brakes needed on any grades I've been on.
