 Because the wheelbase of an SDP40F is longer than an FP45, and its within inches of the SD60 (59'8" vs. 59'5.5") vs. 58' 7" for  the FP45. Not to mention, as far as the model is concerned, using an SD60 chassis gets rid of the blind inner axle and gives you 3/2 trucks on an MTH model.

And it gives you the correct -2 trucks.
