ARTICLES ON SPEC’ING

Rigged For Success
Choose your truck for comfort and for profit.

Tough Duty
With off-road and on-road hauls, getting your specification right will save you time and money.

Big Bore Power
The big bore is back. But do you need a 16-liter engine to do the job?

Not Your Granny’s Tranny
Is an automated or outomatic transmission right for your business?

If At First You Don’t Succeed
Pick the wrong tire, and you’ll get to pick again sooner than you like.

Keeping Cool
When spec’ing a reefer, don’t forget about fuel costs.

Getting Comfy
Seats have gotten better in recent years, but you should spend some time testing them out before you buy.
