Sounds good Jeff. I have a Eaton 10 speed autoshift on my rig. I've only got 55,000 miles on the entire rig (it was built as a truck conversion from brand new). I'm hoping this transmission will last until I die. It does shift and pull hard tho. My rig weighs 25,xxx lbs. without the trailer hitched up. I always override it to start in 3rd (default is 2). I think the ability to skip shift would be nice too for most unloaded recreational driving. I wonder if Eaton will ever come up with a software update to allow it to do that?
'03 Freightliner FL112, 295" wheel base, with '03 United Specialties 26' living quarters, single screw, Cat C12 430 h/p 1650 torque, Eaton 10speed , 3.42 rear axle ratio
