In December I went down south and bought a rust free 06 379 exhd factory day cab c-15 550 hp 215 wb had 650,000 . Bad part is it has a 10sp with 373 gears .
I pull a 3 axle detach lowboy . Transmission was making noise and after I got it, the rod to the air ride control was bent making the driveshaft bottom out and put pressure on trans .straightened rod and all fine . Probably going to put a 13sp in it later . Gave $34000 and spent 6-7000 putting new exhaust and other clean up things .
I went out to Grand Island and looked at a w900 that looked good from 50ft away up close it was a wreck. Normal lair told me how great it was ,10k truck with a 50k price.
Others I looked at in Omaha were rust buckets . If a guy waits theres always some nice lowboy tractors on Ritchie Bros auction.
