    Nice looking truck! The visor gives it an interesting look. How do you like the door window skirts? Is it comfortable to drive with the windows down a bit?

    The truck sounds awesome but rattles a little bit when you kick on the jakes (really loud). About the visor you either love it or hate it, this is the first truck that it has ever been put on. I dont have any trouble seeing out of it. The window skirts I like very much you can role the window down about 3 inches and not hear any wind noise. As far as tripple r goes they were super good to me and havent had any problem with the truck. This is not my first truck and I checked it out really well before I signed the papers. I will try to get some more picks up with the lowboy and dozer on it.

    Just an update.
    I have had a few performance problems with the truck, but TripleR has been willing to help to an extent. Nothing really major just a lot of little stuff, that I'm a little dissatisfied with.

    nice truck!! there is so much mag chloride on the roads here it is really hard to keep the chrome clean. the clearance would be an issue as well. i am sure for your application it works well.

    truck is absolutely bad a**. ive bought alot of chrome from triple r with pretty good results for my w900. id like to have them build me a truck too but there's definately gonna be problems with any custom build and there too far from me to get it handled.

    What sort of issues have you been having?

    Beautiful truck. I love the way the c-15 sounds.. I do dislike the visor but then again I don't like any drop visors on Pete's.. I like how they look but hate driving them. Good thing it's not mine :)
