    Agreed, but I think I would look for a different truck to plow with or use as a daily driver.

    Hot shot truck is a small tractor trailer used over the road, like a expedited truck, ie straight truck with sleeper and sometimes reefer and liftgate. I would shy away from this truck because of the transmission, that 7 speed (or 6+1) spicer is a ticking time bomb. They have a very big, and I mean big rep of being junk in the trucking world, yes that trans suxs...it rattles when u are in top gear, and it keeps rattling worse and worse till the spline shaft is completely worn, then u need to warranty is out or replace it, too expensive to bother fixing....im going on and on because I would never want anyone to experience what we went through with one on an International 4900. Get one with an Eaton Fuller 6 speed, thats a rock solid trans, dont get the spicer 7 speed, its junk, prob why guy is dumping the truck with such low mileage!

    I saw some really nice hot shot cabs on Med Duty straight jobs. Somewhere there is a Dodge Cummins Hot Shot setup with a 5 (or 6) and splitter.

    Might have to get one for our empty nest pre-semi-retirement years LOL.
