I’ve had an idea which may be a long shot but was curious if anyone might know the answer. MTH’s updated Bloomberg trucks they are using in Premier geeps are very well detailed. Might it be possible to swap trucks or truck side frames on a Railking scale diesel for the Premier version? I’d imagine it wouldn’t be cheap, but I feel like it could take those models to the next level. Anyone tried it?

I doubt that you can as the railking model uses the old mold trucks that are a bit shorter than the newest premier trucks. Before I beieve say 2007? You could've done just what you are asking.
The same rich Bloomberg that runs for Prez every so often?
D500, I think you're confusing Martin Blomberg with Michael Bloomberg. (tongue in cheek)
Might be expensive to purchase new trucks. For swapping, are the wheelbase dimensions the same? Otherwise the wheels may rub the side frames.
Also, somewhere along the line MTH went from inaccessible top mount screws to underside mounting.
What engine number?
I have the same question... just looking to swap the side frames, maybe not the whole truck.
I have done it on a couple of different models. Yes they interchange. At least in my experience.
