    The 338 or the 155? 338 was used, can't remember the miles at time of purchase, but not a lot as it was only 1 yr old. 155 I bought new.

    Problems with 2015 hino 155???

    I bought a Hino 155 in 2017 for my cabinetmaking business. After looking at the Isuzu and the Hino it was and is my considered opinion that the Hino is a better built truck. My 155 has had no unusual service requirements and never gives me any issues, but because we run it 90% local there's not...

    J08E Injectors & DPF

    Found injectors online from a manufacturer going by the name of ERIKC. Little doubt they are China made. Even though they are very affordable (read that as cheap), I am not inclined to use them unless someone has a positive experience. Anyone know about ERIKC?

    J08E Injectors & DPF

    Anyone give me an idea on what the cost should be to do new injectors & the DPF? The test was done & I am given to understand that the injectors failed. The DPF may clean up but they won't know that until they get into it. Consequently I'm looking at a worst case scenario cost. Any input...

    Hello again Mr GTS I have a self-inflicted problem: the box I put on my cab & chassis is too tall to back into my building. I have 11R22.5 tires on it. My rear axle is 21,000 lbs, tires are plenty capable. Now here's the questions: Can I use 225 (or 255) 70R-22.5 tires? That would reduce my...

    Low Pro tires: will 275/80r 225 tires have a negative impact on my 338? Can my dealer program my speedo to correct for the smaller diameter tires? What will the impact be on rpm at cruise with the 6 speed Allison?

    My new (to me) Hino 338 update. After searching for a few months I bought a 2013 with about 60,000 miles. Came to me as cab & chassis. From NYC to Rochester NY it gave me 12.8 mpg; not too bad for a 33k truck, but no box yet. Just putting it in service today (4/21/14) with a 25' box. It...

    That is what I was hoping to hear. I have an agreement on a 70,000 2013 338, will see it in person Wednesday to cast it in stone as long as it is as advertised (& I am confident that it is, but as RR said, "trust but verify") I'll be putting 50,000/year at most on it so I would expect a long &...

    Hello again Greasy. So by 2013 did they get the pollution control stuff sorted outl? Are you seeing these late models making their owner/operators loose their minds with servicing the pollution control systems, or is it something that folks can live with reasonably well?

    Mr GS: Looked at the 07 338 yesterday. All the aluminum in the engine compartment is really corroded, the oil pan is rusted really badly & looks like an awl would go right through it, there are mismatched tires in the back, & there is evidence of (previous?) water leak in one of the upper front...

    Hello again GS No air bags, just air brakes. It's at Penske, don't know if they can do the reports you mentioned but I'll ask. Checked the VIN with local dealer & they have no significant claims. They say all campaigns up do date, did a starter in 09, and a couple marker lights. Sounds like...
