Comments on the rig?

6 speed auto. Should it have more gears or is 6 speeds sufficient?

For the small motor yes the 6spd is fine.

....get into the right lane on a grade.....Other than that- should work good for ya.....towing anything big will be a problem-fuel mileage will suck.....I'd go in at $100K on an open finance deal-no prepayment penalty- and then pay it off asap....warranty issues not be a problem wiht Freightliner-except you have to wait in line to get her fixed.....geofkaye

I understand all your displeasures with the smaller engine and 6 speed.

BUT, is not that the same set up as warpath has?

Or I seem to remember he had/has the 12 speed and mentioned in one of his posts that for this engine he actually preferred the 6speed?

It's not what I'd buy for what I need or my driving style but it should be a fine setup for anyone not towing much mroe than a dingy.
