My buddy was getting the same hauling freight in a 53' van. Boss man said "Gotta go!"

Was a pretty white W9!

I wouldn't worry too much about frame length. I would have to look at the glider spec I just got but its weight per foot isn't as much as I would have thought. Your not going double frame are you? Wouldn't the length help you with permits? I have a few daycab W9's at 215" and a W9 with a 62" sleeper that's 245" and if I order a glider it will be 260" because every foot helps with Ohio's dumbass bridge law for OW loads.

Either double frame or spec the heavier single rails. Don't forget I need the lift axle and try to keep at least 54" axle spacing. The length would help somewhat but becomes a washout due to lost turning radius with the dual steering gears and flotation steers. I may end up getting away from the flotation steers and doing a 14,600 steer to get back some turning ability since I can't seem to get much more than 12K on my steer anyway with a conventional neck lowboy. If I ran the neck at 14-16 feet long I could load my steer but then have to deal with length issues when unloaded.

I personally don't see much need for double frame on a truck that spends most of its life on pavement or at least flat ground. On a log truck pulling 150k+ through the woods......maybe, but a hwy truck pulling legal weight permit loads IMO its added weight an a rust nightmare.

Agreed! Looked into it a little today, can get a heavier single rail, which is the way I'm gonna go.

Hope you have a good dealer, the ones here are morons. For example when KW first said they would offer gliders the sales manager here said "I can get you a W9 with an engine but no trans/rears!" Yea dip chit its those 2013 transmissions and axles that suck! He will get stock trucks in that are totally screwed up. Always orders the old narrow fuel tank straps that the rubber gaskets always roll up. Only colors that exist to him is white/blue/red.

Haha super 10 was so awesome they don't offer it anymore. Replaced with the ultra shift junk so fleets can hire more dumbass steering wheel holders.

Dayton was the jackass I was describing but I called Columbus too. Waiting to see if things pick up before I order anything.

I was talking with KW in Cleveland,TX and was surprised when he told me they opened sales on gliders again. It's all the other schidt coming down next year that bothers me though! Think I'm gonna do a modular 42" this time with the VIT interior but I hate the NAV Plus. Wonder how hard it would be to swap that whole panel for a gauge panel instead? There is a nice W900 with the 42" modular on TruckPaper right now, red with white Seminole scheme with a lift axle, 600/18spd. Or just buy a nicer 359 and spend nights for the next year building what I really want with a pre-emissions yellow motor.

God I hate super 10's... I know a guy that has a one dump truck fleet and the poor guy has a Detroit and a super 10.
One of our trucks at work has one and I hate it... Been stuck with it the past couple days this week.

Yuk! Like the look, hate the wall behind the seat! KW of Birmingham always stocks nice trucks, along with Coopersburg KW in PA. Both stock some well spec'd trucks.

Doesn't bother me at all because I'm so short plus the fact that I only want it for logbook sake! Trying to build this one more classic looking than the aerocabs.

I love the aerocab, me seat is moved back about 3 inches from where it would normally sit. But I'm 6'2" so I'll take all the legroom I can get Haha

When it comes down too it, I would say Columbus or even Chillicothee even though its out of the way, it seems the guys at the Hissong dealers are a little more well versed when it comes to variety.
