    A few notes:

    1) There is no mention on the Spartan site about an "LL Model."
    2) There is no mention on the Rosenbauer site about an "LL Model." (Rosenbauer owns Central States)
    3) Being called the "LL Model" by either of the manufacturers is simply to know which truck they are talking about, if they don't have another truck on the line for a department whose letters are LL.
    4) The truck doesn't look too bad.

    Why are there dice hanging from the window of that truck?

    The last thing I want my driver doing is looking at fuzzy dice because they caught his eye en-route, then crashing.

    No nothing is on their site, I mean the truck, the ENTIRE thing we got is the LL Model, if you order a truck from them they SHOULD say the "LL Model" and if not then I don't know as to why but that's what they told us.

    And the dice were from the Wildwood Convention 2005, the dice are nowhere near the drivers view, if YOU sit in the cab in the drivers seat,you cans ee perfectly fine.

    If your driver can be distracted by fuzzy dice while driving, the problem is MUCH bigger then the fuzzy dice.

    Nice truck.

    I thought the station and name sounded familiar. I had many years of family trips to Beach Haven and tossed coins out the window as we passed on Route 70 when I was young.

    I agree with Dennis, if someone is distracted that easily... hey check out the chick in that '57 Vette over there!

    292,My guess would be that LL was Rosenbauers "line"code for Lebanon Lakes.Just a guess based on history with the company. T.C.

    ????????????


    How many more of these surveys are we going to be besieged with?? I am only thinking that most of the older guys get tired of seeing you create a new thread, asking this and that on anything from gloves to trucks.

    Why not do a search???
