[SCR] Peterbilt 350

The Peterbilt 350 can be considered the precursor to all of the long nose conventionals that followed it. Its swooping fenders, bolted radiator shell and imposing 130" bumper to back of cab dimension made it a truly majestic king of the highway. It was introduced in 1949 and produced through 1957, with 847 units produced (as well as 387 units of the single axle model 280), overlapping the more familiar and prolific lightweight model 351.

I've taken a couple of liberties in this recreation: the single axle model 280 is treated as just a chassis variation, and I've limited the transmission selection to those that will work well with the game's limitations (the model 350 primarily used compound transmissions which aren't properly supported in ATS).

Helpful Hints:
Pay careful attention when configuring the chassis, engine, and transmission. The standard chassis use double reduction rear axles (Rockwell SLDD) and so only slow ratios are available (4.68 to 5.90). This is best suited to the more 'vintage' engine selections (H and early NH engines) by trading off speed for more torque at the wheels. There are also chassis with Stabilaire suspension and SQHD rears (ratios 3.70 to 4.63) which pair well with more recent engines.

Also bear in mind that not all exhaust configurations will be available with all tank configurations. If you're not finding what you want, try a rear-mounted tank. ;)

Nice truck! One little issue I found:

The phone GPS or the portable navigator on the windshield stays black and does not show anything. No I don't know if those have been added by the Compatibility Addon by user lastingf4 - so if this is the case, it's not a bug then :D

Actually, the R-960 with 3.70 ratio would be faster as its top ratio is overdrive (0.78). If you want to be faithful to reality though, it has a max torque capacity of 690 lb-ft. One of these days I need to add some more overdrive options...

there is a problem with this mod the weigh station indicator shows a green light when you have to pull in to be weighed and when you get to pass it shows a red light its very annoying i have been fined twice because of this im trying to do a realistic playthrough with modded trucks and this has given me a big hole in my money
