Weill I have had my truck and or trailer for sale for a couple months now. (wanted to either sell them and buy a dumptruck, or sell trailer and convert my truck to a dumptruck save money on fuel) Well, my buddy I work w/ is buying a Pete longhood from Missouri next weekend if all goes thru...and when he does he will be short a trailer. So, after discussing this today...I am going to trade him my Hilbilt trailer for a 359 Peterbilt supertruck he has. And park my Freightliner, pull the sleeper, paint the truck, remove the 5th wheel, and convert it to a dumptruck.(over the winter of course) I am stoked....I been eye balling this Pete he has had for awhile now, and was actually going to buy it off him, if mine sold. Here is a pic of my trailer and the truck I am getting in trade....
So if all goes right, trading this trailer...

..for this truck..

It's a fragging Pete thing. They sometimes develop an issue with the cab suspension which causes the back of the cab to sag after a while.

Cool, Derek. But the only thing that would make that 'ol Pete look better is if it had a KW on the hood. J/P Hope it works out for you, Brother!

I dont know about a KW hood, but I will change the headlights out to single round lights if I get it.

The air bags on the back of the cab have deflated.....basically what campy said!

Yeah, once the truck is mine...I am going to have the bags under the cab looked at. Not saying the truck is perfect...but I can haul just as much as my truck and trailer, use less fuel, and its alot easier to find Class B drivers than it is to find Class A drivers w/ end dump experience. Once my son starts school full time, I plan to drive during the day while he is in school. Thats an extra 500 to 800 a week I would save.(pay varies depending on how much the driver hustles)
