Hi Lang
We have just taken delivery of two 2863 Mercedes with no rear view mirrors when you sit at the steering wheel there are two screens positioned in the door pillar area with a crystal clear view of any thing behind you and also along side of you on both sides. And then if you are reversing they move to show where you are heading.
But then this is what European Trucks offer. By the way has any one seen Swishy lately.

I think I got struck off his cocktail party list by getting him excited about my new Mack and then discovering it is really a French poodle.

If I went to the American Iron truck show it would be like that Sidney Poitier movie "Look Whose Coming to Dinner"

Rex, Swishy is probably marshalling the forces! Readying for chapter and verse worthy of response!

Rex may need a big bottle of Loctite to go through the cab and loctite all the screws in place. Neighbours boss bought a freas Mercedes early this year and had the dash jump onto his lap, very impressed, NOT!
Meanwhile, the neighbours KB104 with now 3 million on the clock and pushed along with a CAT keeps running up n down the highways almost non stop. Hed had an issue last weekwith a power steering hose blowing and while in the shop they checked the box and though that should go too.
