Hi guys, I read it on Wikipedia, but I figure maybe you guys have a better understanding? What happened to Fords heavy duty truck division I know it became Sterling in like what 1998 or something like that, but why? Also wasn't Sterling part of Freightliner and isn't Freightliner the parent company of Chrysler or vice versa? Like Ford used to make tractors and semi trucks and front end loaders and back ho tractors. Any how the first truck I ever backed up was an old exR&L carriers Ford L9000 I don't think it had the Aeromax badge, but it was a L9000.
