• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

All that thing needs is a KT600 15RR with 15th turned around backwards. I used to ride a sled behind the Liberty Bell KW 81 and 82 and part of 83.

Just to mention - those Western Stars have the best roomiest condos I have ever seen, even bigger I think than my old Freightliner Classic interior. The last 12 years I drove I was assigned a Freightliner Century class and the Western Star condo made mine look like a walk-in closet lol. But, mine was a company truck. My trucks and horsey trailer filled my driveway. I eventually had to have it redone as my big truck cracked the concrete lol

Crete is a good trucking company. Drove for them a long time (17yr) and retired from there. Good dispatchers, good equipment, great working conditions.

This may be one of the nicest rigs I've ever seen. I like the graphics, the guard on the front, and then that coach interior is niiiiice!

Crete's Leave Of Absence program worked perfectly for me. I would take off for weeks at a time, sometimes longer, traveling with my band, and it was hassle-free to come back, make the call, pee in a cup, get in the truck and go. Did it once for 4 months when over in Europe, never had an issue with them - ever, over anything - in all the years I was there. Easiest company to get along with. They're dispatching operations takes some getting used to (different dispatcher every load so at to not encourage favoritism) but once they have you down as reliable and efficient and punctual, you will make great money there. Don't mean to toot my horn, but when I retired I had zero moving violations, zero accidents (that were my fault) and I used to get the safety bonus every year. Let's not talk about scale tickets, tho. ;)

Do those use the same stuff from RV's like dometic friges for example, or are they better quality?
