They put a lot of time/$/effort and planning to catch attention.

I try to give it to them.

It`s only right.

Yeah my 1999 F350 has this issue.  Dull and no shine.

Wasn’t the satin finish look the intent on aluminum? Dodge didn’t have aluminum but they had bright chrome simulator covers which I still use but the aluminum wheel always appealed to me but not the satin look, Lo’s polished look is my like.

1992 Big window, With a big cam 400 Cummings and Jakes,   13 speed Eaton with overdrive , 4:11’s  in the rear.  Pretty standard for that era when the speed limit was 55.  She won’t break any speed records but I can fill it to the  tarp and get it to the Elevator maxed out .  Best I bet did was 121,000  lol.
Only 41,000 over weight. Lol

Nice truck certainly some eye candy.

One of the local landscape material outfits has a nice cab over they use to bring the mulch.

I enjoy seeing that old iron was a bed bugger in my 20's we ran cab overs

Late 60s I worked at freightliner on the cab line, interesting how they put these together, one line was cabs and the next line was chassis, then the marry was something to see.

Lots of COE’ still in use around here locally but I doubt there are very many hauling coast to coast these days. 
 

Still very popular in other country’s like Mexico, South America , Australia, and Europe. Also still being manufactured.

I've seen them Europe just about every brand must be a short length limit.

I was stuck in a IHC 4070B company truck so we drooled over those Petes pretty sure that one I posted had a condo on back at one time hence the wing.

Bed bugging were all light loads you would cube out before going over weight so you could have a heavy tractor some of the OOs ran the condos.

One of my buddies just retired from bed bugging over the years he had a IH, Mack, Ford and the last COE he was able to get was a Freightshaker then he had to switch to conventionals
