You'll ride low and run proud in the Western Star LowMax. Both the 4900 EX and 4900 FA LowMax are designed for Owner-Operators who demand the maximum in pride and performance. Almost a foot lower than standard configurations, the LowMax is ideal for grain, cattle, auto, and boat haulers looking for a low vehicle profile. Personalize it to the max with chrome and stainless steel accessories available exclusively through your Western Star dealer.
