    What are the differences between the two anyway? All the illustrations look the same to my untrained eye.

    Cool, seeing another company coming out with a switcher. It looks great!

    Sounds like the only differences are the shape of the front windows and the size of the front radiator intake?

    Externally yes, most of the big changes were all under the hood, out of sight. The radiator, for instance, went from 2 smaller fans to one big fan, the external size is the only thing we have to worry about. Likewise the cab windows progressed to the more familiar rectangular shape.
