You can get them with either Eaton or Maxitorque manuals, even a push-button Allison.

I must be a hard core, old school, anachronism then because I still want to see the hood and a shifter in my truck.
The bigger they are, the harder they haul!

I drive the SCS Mack Anthem most of the time... when I'm not driving Overfloater's KW 100e. It takes getting used to but it is a sweet rig, even if it is in ATS. The Tracker IR makes even easier to look around when your driving. If you have the engine mod with the 720hp Mack engine use that. It pulls the hills a lot easier.

I like this Mack truck especially with the Mack sound by Kriechbaum, good dashbord and big windscreen and enough engie power

I also love the Anthem - but sometimes it's not easy to check traffic on the right side due to the mirror position.

I also use Kriechbaum's sound, adapted to Galimim's engines. The 505hp are more than enough and the consumption is at 7.2mpg (I'm hauling a flatbed).

I drove the Anthem as soon as it came out, and it was far from the worst. In fact, I prefer it to many of the other "starter" trucks.

On the subject of the mirrors, it is quite an adjustment in general coming from ETS (Where you can see your nearside wing mirror easily) to ATS, where they are situated further back. Doesn't take much to adapt to, and certainly isn't an issue that is confined to the Anthem (the VNL is worse for this, I found).
