I have found several T2000 Kenworths with C12 Cats and Autoshifts, mileage around the 550,000 range, if anyone is looking the price on these units are around 28,000. These trucks are Red in color and are model yr 2000.
Let me know if you are interested. I can refer you to an individual that has these trucks.

Question that I have for you experience Conversion Scientists!

Can a T2000 be converted to a single axle relatively inexpensively? And who out there has done one or two.

I have heard that Kenworths are expensive to convert to Single axles. And, I heard some can't be converted ?

Help me with this.

I was at United Specialities Wed and they are doing a motorhome conversion on a T-2000.

He mentioned that when they do the motorhomes on a T-2000 they have to be careful about overloading the front axle.

Truck conversion shop in Austin, TX, does just T2000 tractors. They all appeared to be red, with autoshift transmissions, so my best guess is the trucks come from CFI's fleet.

I've only seen one of their trucks in person -- single axle - but did not have the sense at the time to check out how it was done. This same truck is shown on their web site and printed on their sales documents. I'm attemting to locate the web site now and will post whenever I find it.

T2000 -- sweet rig!!

don, mase sanford, my rig is a T2000, it's also a single rear axle, there are pic's in warhourse' folder. if you have any questions, hope i can answer them. oh-- the thing to watch out for if over loadin' the front tires-- the 12000 front is rated at 13600-- so the tires are next. a 14000 or 16000 would be best. i'm ok but i might go up a size on tires. --- mase

Mase-
Just popped over to the photo dept. and had a look at your rig. Fine lookin' machine! One question, though, and not to be nosey(me? right!), but about what did it run to have your factory sleeper removed? If it was all figured in w/ the conversion, don't worry about it, just thought you might have an idea. Again, one smooooth lookin' rig! Gary Atsma

What year are the T2000's with C12's? I have a large group of CFI'S For sale. N14 Cummins 460hp Auto Shift. Miles in the the 500 to 600,000 mile range. 2000 2001 2002'S prices are under NADA retail. The thing about the CFI Trucks that makes them attractive is the maintenance the trucks have had. When your buying a class 8 vehicle regardless of engine make find out what HP and torque the truck is capable of. A C12 could be a 430hp at 1650 or it could be a 380 at 1450 torque. They can turn up HP and Torque depending on what the transmission is rated for. The same applies for N14 Cummins M11 Cummins Detroit and the bigger Cat motors also. I Think the bigger the hp and torque the happier your gonna be with yor truck fuel mileage will be better also the bigger motors seem to last longer.

......KWMAN ....a word of warning.....be careful how you post your wares.....every now and then someone gets upset and starts a poop flood about commercial sales[which lasts for a week or two]....Not that I care-I just don't want to travel all the way MO. for a truck- but there are some very opinionated people on this board and it does take very little to get them P & Moaning- [AKA whinning}.....[from my personal experience]....and I have nothing to sell to anyone.........geofkaye-I'm a buyer/not a seller

KWMAN did it right, he added some useful information sprinkled in with a short plug. I got no problem with that. BTW welcome to the sight!

It's the clowns that stumble on to the place and post a commercial with no useful information who will get bounced.

KAYE RIVERCITY: Thanks for the advice. I love these Forums. and I am amazed at how smart a lot of these people are about trucks. I am opinionated myself. These people work hard for their money and I would just hate to see anyone buy a truck that isn't what they would expect when it comes to performance or condition.
