I decided I needed a road tractor so I bought this WSI Peterbilt 579. The overall quality is very nice, and I highly recommend getting one. The tires are incredable, they look like Bridgestone 711's. Lowboy is a 1st Gear Talbert hauling a Conrad Liebherr 734 LGP dozer. 🤐

Sorry I don't like it. I like tough looking trucks. That looks like a tour van from Scituate. Did it not come with a WSI lowboy? CAW

Looks great Ken. How would it look with the DM 2X3X2? Also I was hoping for the CCM 973 on back! Also, this would be a perfect fit to the Tonkin cabinet headackbrack you put on your WS.

Thanks Claus. It looks good with the DM trailer. I will try and get you a picture. The 973 only needs 6-7 axles. The Tonkin chain closet doesn't fit, too big. You mght try one of the 3-D printed ones. d'oh! Whistle

Hi Q. I useally don't care for the over the road stuff either, but I like the looks of this one. Flat top sleeper, no fairings on the tanks, and it's black. It did not come with a trailer. Silenced

Thanks Ken. I didn't word that right. I knew the 973 didn't ned the jeep and stinger but thanks! Should have said either with the 2X3X2 or with the 973 and Talbert.

The trucks in your photos always looks so clean.

Ken I also think that is very nice looking rig, but could you please buy a Volvo and post something nice about it. Also your friend from NC would not recognize a tough looking truck if it crept up behind him and bit him in the derrière, he thinks his sheep steering wheel cover on his Yugo is tough, please pay no attention to that man with the misaligned toupee on his head.

Hey baldy it’s a bus not a van.

Ken: I just noticed that tool box. Where did that come from? And would you please tell that numbskull from Rhode Island how a cabinet rack works. He doesn't know where the chains go. He does know how to chain up his boyfriend when it's time to play rough. CAW

Ken your the best, thank you.
Steve

Q it’s probably the same as chaining up 3 boyfriends, 2 sheep and a gerbil which you are very familiar with. As far as rough goes you are the epitome of rough when it comes to human/animal interaction.

Here you are Claus. You will have to drill out the 5th wheel plate a little. I am thinking about puting a third axle on the jeep.

Ken great set up with the jeep, and that third axle looks great on it. Now what’s the total weight you can haul with that rig. Also Ken if you were traveling thru NC with that dozer pulled onto the lowbed like that you would be put in jail. You should call The Q and see if he can back that on to your lowbed for you.

Yeah,the three axles looks right.It makes the whole trailer look much more 'heavy duty'.Is that a computer generated picture,before you actually do anything?

No, that is the axle from the single axle booster.
