As Joe asked, what brand/model of truck is it and also wondering what drive axle suspension it happens to be equipped with.

I had to look that model up as there are so many models and configurations within Peterbilt trucks, what I wonder then with that listing for the suspension, to me that sounds like it has the leaf/air bag steer axle suspension system. I don't know anything about it but just that it exists and the idea is a better ride but still a stable platform according to the bits I have read that is. The rear makes sense with the air trac as that has been Peterbilts main heavy duty air ride for years now and one of my trucks has that and its made to be fairly stable so its not like trucks that feel your riding on a floppy marshmallow, the reason I say that is because of high loads on some air rides would not be so good. With it being that new of a truck it may have disc brakes as well, not sure what options are available to go to drum or disc these days since there would be more of a push all the time to go to disc brakes.

I have a couple of older Peterbilts with air trac suspension. They aren’t as smooth a ride as the air leaf but are more stable for high loads, as previously stated by northern farmer. Some guys would value that more than others

Speaking of the ride I actually have two Petes, one with the drive axle air trac and the other has the air leaf and in all honesty hauling grain with either of them, I can't really detect much difference and in fact possibly due to a bit longer wheel base on the air trac unit, I think it rides slightly better, no worse for sure. Now low air leaf, that is probably a different story as I believe they were more designed to ride softer and not made with the ground clearance either. There are lots and I do mean lots of Peterbilt air trac suspension trucks in this part of Alberta and looking at the local dealership that is in large part what they bring in for a suspension.

I'd say also that those who might be from south of the boarder hear of thicker frames then they are used to and 46 rears and think its crazy but one has to keep in mind we don't live in the 80000 lb restricted surrounding and also need some toughness to take our less then desirable roads, and again large loads ( overloaded ) in soft fields etc

Even here in the land of 80000 pound limits I would probably look for a heavier spec rear axle truck next time. We tend to be overloaded and operate in crappy conditions. We have broken leaf springs and differentials. We don’t haul enough for the added weight to amount to anything

I would say a truck specd like that would be geared more to severe off road duty, such as logging or oil field work. Not really needed for super B's or what most normal farmer would put it through. Those nut bars on Ice Road Truckers would be a good candidate for a truck like that!! lol

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

You guys must have a lot better conditions to truck in than we have. We have blown more 40's than I can count and even killed a couple of 46's while hauling hay.
