Both White Freightliners. The day cab intrigues me... it has a rounded corners on the grill. Early 60s, first generation that replaced the Bullnose of the mid-late 50s. CF and PIE had thousands of these pulling doubles over the mountains. Bad-ass trucks... no frills.

The sleeper COE is 80s before they redesigned the cab. Looks like it was restored. Beautiful.

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

Doubles:

Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.

WOOOOO HOOOOOO!!! G'Town, for the G's !!!!! G'money!

I bet MONEY they were F/L whites !!! I LOVE how you know your stuff, G !!!

Sadly, I bet money with a Harley enthusiast / a wanna be trucker. (He builds T/T 'models,' tho! LoL...) No name dropping, I swear!!!

The top one IS a daycab ?!?!? Heck, w/those coffin sleepers, how could one tell ?!? Wow, just wow. I LOVE your finesse with all this; truly do! (Is there a thread, of such? < If not, why not ?!?) :)

TYSM!

It would be nice if they let you do your ten there during the summer. Should be nice and cool.

All the caves I've been in have been 66° regardless of time of year. It's nice and cool but damp.

Here's another one for you. I had just left the office in Twin Falls, when this pulled up to the red light.

Cabovers are pretty common on the Southern border. The ones driving around down there must have al least two million miles on them. Seems as if they would be noisy inside, due to the fact that the driver is sitting on top of the engine. I guess the driver has to lift the cab off of the engine compartment to do a pre-trip inspection. If I had to do that, all of the stuff in my sleeper would be rolling all over the place, lol.

Pre-trip Inspection:

A pre-trip inspection is a thorough inspection of the truck completed before driving for the first time each day.

Federal and state laws require that drivers inspect their vehicles. Federal and state inspectors also may inspect your vehicles. If they judge a vehicle to be unsafe, they will put it “out of service” until it is repaired.

Most cabovers have a jacking mechanism to lift the body above the frame, pivoting at the front. There is also a latch that keeps the cab lowered and locked down for driving. Most of these COE's have small access covers for a visual look, or when checking/adding the fluids.

Didn't latch it correctly? You'll know real quick after a hard brake!
