    Do the numbers that are on the trailer and tractor have any meaning ? city trailer or road trailer or single axle or twin screw ? Just curious.

    Sometimes.............................. start with the color of the truck if O&B or Blue first digit =8 single axle =7 tandem axle LH uint Second digit is the year. 1 P&D tractor(very few left) 2= retired line haul(probably downgraded pre 2009 or shortly thereafter) Currently P&D units are numbered as 6xxxx some being used as regional LH. LH tractors start with a 1 for single and it appears 7 for Tandem.
    P&D Trailers 820xxx are 40' good luck finding a decent one 830xxx 45' see 820, 843xxx 48' 89xxx and 73xxxx lift gate trailers various lengths ......................

    Yea like everything else it's a real cluster f.................................they start doing things one way and next year change to a different way seems over the last couple years only the pup numbering has been constant buy a pup new or used and it gets the next number available...........

    I hope they start tractor numbering all over again. I want to get to drive tractor number 1 before I retire for good!

    ‘Goof Off’ multi purpose cleaner is great for removing glue residue. If they do not accommodate your wish, a little scraping and elbow grease might leave your final ride with the number “1.”

    It’s also a great pretreatment for engine cleaning. The real crusty stuff.

    If you add the 3rd & 5th number then take the sum total, 6 to the 9th power, divide that by 0, & you shall have the date of birth, sex, & which way it votes in the next election. And last but not least, which LGBT branch of the tree it swings from. Hope this is help full. von.

    The third number on Roadway LH tractors designated the make of the tractor. Volvo is 5 and I think Sterlings were 4. Any others were before my time.
