4955 Big Rig Custom
About this creation
I have made quite a few changes for appearance, functionality, and realism. The bumper is now chrome, the headlights now have guards, and built-in turn signals. The original hood lifted up with the grille. Now the grille is seperate from the hood to allow a radiator to be installed. The original engine has been scrapped , and a new engine modeled after a Detroit Deisel V10 has been placed. It now has fuel lines running directly from the tanks to the engine, a battery, spark plug wires in the top of the engine, and a visible alternator. There is now a full pulley system and a fan belt. There are also visible exhaust headers mounted. The under carriage has a full frame, transmission, driveshaft, differentials, and visible exhaust system. The interior has also been updated. The seats now have headrests, there are two pedals, and the dashboard has been made more realistic. There are now armrests mounted in with rear-facing red reflectors. On the side of the roof there are now dual retractable CB antennas. The exhaust is now chrome. The mirrors have integrated turn signals and side markers. The rear is more of a simplistic design, taken up completely with the taillights. The bed is now smooth, which adds appearance and aerodynamics.

Nice truck!!! If I'l have only ONE little suggestion, it will be to turn the rims in the other side... only my point of view! ;)

Quoting Bonald 1101 Before you read this comment, understand it's me being picky... Did you know that a diesel engine doesn't have spark plugs: instead, the huge temperatures and compression forces the diesel is put under as it is injected causes it to spontaneously combust, negating the need for spark plugs.
Thank you! I had no idea of that... I thought they worked on the same general basis as a passenger car engine... And I appreciate this comment as well, because it lets me know people actually read the description... XD
