I was thinking the 122SD. The 114SD and 108SD always seemed to me to be heavier duty M2's with more vocational options. Good trucks for the money if they fit your application. I see what you are saying, if Freightliner drops the 112SD there will not be any real overlap between Freightliner and Western Star vocational trucks. Western Star offers some factory options that no one else does and that will always win them bids. Way back I was told that International got a lot of oil field business (Haliburton, Schulmberger, ect.) because they cataloged some very specialized trucks for those specific applications.
Over the years I have seen some very creative spec. writing! I have also seen such spec. writing result in some very unanticipated winning bids.....
Well I feel really lucky compared to some of the stories on here. We ordered a F350 Lariat with ultimate package, Black appearance, 5th wheel prep and a few more things on it. It was delivered to the dealer on June 11th. It's been sitting there since, with a do not sell on it due to Particulate matter sensor recall. Apparently my truck has the sensor and the new software for a truck without it. I just received an update from the dealer that more trucks are affected by this, with a fix in early July. I know I asked a few pages back but does any have a realistic timeline for repair? The reason I'm asking is because we were hitting the road second week of July and was hoping to be in the new truck. Thanks for the help
I've been following your plight on another forum & feel your pain. Been waiting since ordering my truck nearly 9 months ago, also built w/ no holds and in the "awaiting shipment" with no explanation purgatory.
I have to keep telling myself it could be worse & try to be patient (it hasn't been 90 days for me ...yet).
They’re not bad to install. Recon makes a factory looking led light that mounts using round holes. There are several YouTube videos on how to install them. I’ve installed several sets and never had one leak. They plug into the factory harness at the passenger A pillar and work like factory lights. I just installed some on a 2020. They work like factory installed lights. I think the kit was $150
WOW! You have patients! I’d be irate.
I am almost 8 months out. Called my dealers Gm and asked where I’m at as far as priority and I’m line as far as their dealership.
I was priority 2 until I dropped 5WP. Now I’m priority 11🤦🏻♂️! He said they should move it back to a 2 but I changed that over a month ago. As far where I’m n line I’m at he just told me there are 3 duallys total including mine. So who knows. Your wait time really is really inexcusable. I would be on the phone to whoever I could about this.
