Geez! How many gallons does that tank hold?! Does it have 2? If so, are they both that long. Looks like you can go a week without filling up!!

Enjoy the crazy nice "new" ride!!

Nevermind my questions. Just saw the original pics & noticed that it's a toolbox behind you not the fuel tank. That thing has 4 tool/storage boxes!! Definitely puts my tiny lightweight to shame.

She has 2 150 gallon tanks. So 300 gallons total. The “tool box” under the drivers door is the battery box. Only the 2 back boxes and the one under the passenger door are actual tool boxes

She also has the 2 stowage boxes and middle storage under the bottom bunk. She also has a small truck fridge in her too. Yay actual fridge.

Took her for a spin around Nashville area today. Rides so nice. Especially with airbags on the front as well. Will be an adjustment since she reacts differently than the newer engines. But man she has got some get up and go. Especially when all 500 ponies are getting up and going. I had her up to 70 without even realizing it, lol.

Dude, enjoy her for all she's worth. Well deserved.

I asked Prime for a full size & their response was will I train. Nope, see ya.

I gotta say that I love Pete's but that right there will convert me in a NY minute. Lol

Freightliner still makes it, but it's the 122SD now, not the Coronado or Classic. Anyway, congrats on the new job and truck! I was looking at a very similar new one in black at a dealership. Tempting...

Freightliner still makes the 132 Coronado as a glider kit. I Don’t Like the look of the 122SD “Coronado”. I am a fan of the 132 Coronado

Ldrship, I find it pretty amazing that you switch companies and get a new ride, but Wolding had to replace you with an entire new company. See what havoc you have caused!sorry.gifgood-luck.gif
