    The Pacific trucks were used as prime mover from 1972 to 2006 for 34 years. In 2006 they were replaced with 4 Nicolas Tractomas D100. Powered with Cat 3412E DITLA 900 hp same as a Cat D 9. 10x10 trucks all 5 axles being driven. They were also going to rebuilt 2 of the Pacific Ultra trucks in 2006 and 07. I have lost contact with Dennis Child so I do not know how many more they rebuilt.

    Was never a fan of the glass nose Pacifics....but this was our new nose after after IH was gone.Meaning that's a Pacific cab not a IH one..It was nice to see/have Pacific cabs on all of our trucks not just the off highway trucks...
    I didn't hate the glass nose I just preferred the steel front end more..

    HDX,Bill got 40-98. The other that came was 40-99. Because we had used 99 for our emergency call number,decision was made to go to 40-100. I think that truck ended up in CZ Kokish. Bp
