THAT is a Freightliner???!!!!! I know I'm showing off my rookie stripes, but I had no idea Freightliner made a truck line that. For Pete's sake, tell us how it compares to your last truck.

It doesn't have to be for my sake Mr Bruce. If however we start taking up a collection.....

Very nice ride. My white Pete was a Fitzgerald. They have great customer service from my experiences.

They're very nice trucks, I drove one for a little over a year and a half. The ride could be a bit better but all in all they're solid, with quite a bit of room. The real kicker with Fitzgerald specifically is to get one that has a Detroit remanufactured engine and not one built by Fitzgerald. The warranty is different on their in house rebuilds and isn't recognized at most locations.

This one is a Fitzgerald rebuild. I wonder what they do differently. I know when a Fitzgerald rebuild you have to take it to preapproved shops that accept the warranty. They have a list.

Detroit only uses spec parts, Fitzgerald does not. It keeps the cost down a little bit but when you're talking longevity, a couple grand for a full factory warranty isn't going to break the bank.

Odd, because I factory reman only has a 3 year warranty, while Fitzgerald’s reman comes with a 3 year warranty that is extendable up to 5 years.

Very cool looking truck.

I've never even sat my butt in a Pete. The long nose and small windshield has always made me wonder about visibility. I would really be interested in your comparison between your Freightliner and the new Pete. I hope you like it.

Bruce it is a Freightliner. I am not a trainer. I love my Freight Shakers and Detroit Muscle. The truck is a 2012 Freightliner Coronado Fitzgerald glider. It has a 12.7L series 60 Detroit Engine. 10 spd Eaton - Fuller transmission.
