Photoshop. Even messenger apps have tools that allow you to edit pictures, now, before sending them to people. Chop chop! smile.gif

Photos are always great, waiting :) Disc brakes, it's really great, my first truck was already with them, I can not imagine other brakes, because they are the best :)

Pictures are great... I read awhile back Brett seemed to like anonymity. Me too. And as soon as I figure out how to black my truck number and plate number out... I'll post up some pictures.

Wow took big rigs awhile to catch up using discs

I think heat dissipation, wear, and surface area were probably the big concerns. That massive drum can absorb a lot of heat and takes quite a while to wear down. You can also put a huge surface area of pad to it. You're limited in all of those areas with discs.

I actually had an experimental truck with disc brakes from Volvo back in like 2005. They've been working on it for quite a while.

And to top it off... Only a handful of our trailers are disc brakes so the tractors are slowing down faster than the trailers. Probably not the best scenario. One panic stop downhill on a wet or snow covered road away from a good jackknife. But progress has to start somewhere.

I still have yet to figure out how to take decent interior pictures without opening the hood and standing on a steer tire.

Very nice. Color scheme works well too. I like the above the bunk shelve and cabinets.

How do you like the super wides? I have never driven them. Had them on a trailer once, though.

The super singles wouldn't be my first choice. You really lose a lot of traction but in the name of fuel mileage... It's ok though I'm not hauling anything that requires a lot of tractionsmile.gif0267052001556116740.jpg

Super Singles:

A single, wide wheel substituted for a tandem (two wheel) assembly. The main benefit of a super single is a reduction in weight and lower rolling resistance which provide better fuel economy. The disadvantage is the lack of tire redundancy (or a 'backup tire' in case of a blowout) from which tandem wheels benefit. A tire blowout is more dangerous with a super single and can not be driven on.

Bro you should see what I came out of... Two hanging lockers... No shelves... Nothing. Smallest tractor I had ever been assigned no joke.

My first truck was a Volvo 780 with tons of room.
