If you could own any truck, which one would it be, and why?

Id have a kenworth w900 icon with super sleeper (biggest they make from factory) chicken lights everywhere, train horns, nice plush leather interior, and have it be a manual transmission. Oh and also replace the headlights with the classic round lights but they must be high powered leds.

A white Volvo.

Engine doesn't matter. Transmission doesn't matter.

However, if it could come with sandals with socks and an adidas track suit that would be perfect. This way I can fulfill my dream of being a real Russian truck driver passing you all with my feet on the dash.

^^^^^^^This wins the internet^^^^^^^^

Dream truck, hmmmmm. KW or Pete, maybe Western Star 4900 with Legacy 156" sleeper on a 315" wheelbase. 3406 Cat and an 18 double over transmission and 3.70 gear.

I would say a Kenworth W900 with a Isx x15 cummins with the 2050 torque package and with the super sleeper/ studio sleeper. 3:50 to 3.70 gear.

Or a Peterbilt 389 with a cummins Isx x15 with the 2050 torque package or with the same torque package just with a Cat C16, or 3406. I cant remember if there is any higher models than those, but since I plan on hauling a flatbed with super heavy equipment then thats what I want. I would also have the stacks with a much smaller muffler and I might also have them switch it to circular headlights like old times.

Those old truck styles were legitimately the best. Kenworth and Peterbilt are my favorite trucks then come Western Star.

Western Star 5700. Nice blend of classic and aero.

As long as the truck is reliable, has an automated transmission (I'm not all that comfortable with shifting), and won't have any MAJOR mechanical issues for at least a few years, I'm fine with whatever. To me, a truck is a tool for making money. If adding chrome to everything or lights everywhere gave me additional revenue, sure. But it doesn't.

Oh and it has to be a snub nose.

Hmmmm, I will take a 1994 Western Star dump held together with coat hangers and duct tape, multi color of course, no gauges that work (kilometers per hour anyway), straight from south of the boarder, no AC, windows that don't roll down yet FALL/CRASH down only in pouring rain, brakes that don't work, radio stuck on 1 station, gaping hole in deck around stick and wipers from a VW Super Bug....wait, already had that. Ill take whatever ya got.....Obviously! Oh, forgot, it has to shock the heck out of me and shoot a lightning bolts across cab when I attempt to use sun visor.....

Anything with air start. (Watch Mad Max if you don't know what I'm talking about)

Well, since we are dreaming here, I might as well play along. I too, would love to get into heavy haul although I doubt that I will. I just like machines/heavy equipment and I think (said think since I really have no idea) I would like the challenges and the variety of loads....so.....for me probably a KW T800 or a PB 367....put in engines with big hp and torque.....and yes, unlike UHC that poo poo'd the chrome, since this is an exercise in dreaming, I will forgo the logic he displayed and say the more chrome the better. As long as I have someone else to polish it!!
