They decided to put me into a 2020 Volvo today. Anything new always seems nice, but I just didn't realize how poorly my A/C was in the old International I just got out of. The A/C in this truck is awesome! It kind of makes up for the lack of storage space. The factory installed refrigerator takes up some storage place also, but who can complain about having a built in refrigerator?

Congrats buddy, you deserve it! Although I was beginning to wonder if they were prepping to put you out to pasture, what with the old beater they put you in with the dinosaur eggs in the suspension

Did that come preloaded with a bird nest and eggs? Lol.

Have you driven a Volvo before? I know everybody would be interested in your comparative evaluation.

Best of luck with the new unit!

Poor truck doesn't know what it got itself into. Did it have a conversation with the old international as to what's expected of it and how hard it's going to work?

450,000.

Yes, my first truck at Knight was a Volvo. I put over a half a million miles on that first truck before they retired it. They hit me out of the blue with this one. I figured I'd be running that International for at least another 100,000 miles before getting into another truck.
