Arrow Our New Pete 379

Well we bought this beast from blackheath in the blue mountains in New South Wales and we have had it now for the last two weeks, it use to cart fertiliser to farms in the sorroundung areas, Mount Victoria is probably one of the toughest pulls in australia that i know of, and this pete was up and down it pretty much everyday in the last 10 years, as you can see it looks tough as, its a November 1998 build which spent its first 5 years in the states, it was then imported to australia and is now badged as a 2003 model because of the conversion side of things, its got a cat 3406E which is one of the last ones before they became C15's, behind it is an eaton 10 speed, i think the ratois in the diffs are 4:11's but im not too sure, its around there anyway, the trailer is a 2005 beleive it or not, muscat 34'x6'5'' trailer, its had a hard life not only doing fert it use to cart coal in wollongong in the coal mines, weve spent a week going over it so it could pass roadworthy which they both did,
