there is a outfit called ' Cruise King' at this link: http://www.cruisecontrolking.com/ that makes them for diesel trucks and buses. I bought one for a semi some 10+ years ago and it worked great.

Thanks, I did had been to their site. Couldn't figure out from it if theirs would work. I guess I'll have to get my bus home and do some studying.

Don't you just love it when they don't put enough info on their site to tell whether you wasting both yours and their time?

I emailed them this morning, February 1st. By the afternoon, I had this reply:

If it is a rear engine school bus then the part number is 9262. Front engine is 9251T. In either case your cost would be $595.00. We provide phone assistance to you or your installer if you have any questions. To order call us at 507-334-0250 Thanks Steve

It's a little more pricey that what I'd hoped for, but not completely unreasonable. I'm thinking about getting it...someday! Thanks for the initial post to spur on the idea!

I got a similar fast reply, same price, different engine. I agree a bit pricy, but if it's a quality unit probably worth it. Certainly cuts down of fatigue, and helps with fuel mileage.

After 500 miles of foot jammed to the floor, I really would love to have a cruise, regardless of the cost! I've sometimes done the big "no no" and used the throttle lock for a period when my leg was numb! I haven't done that much since the last time I used it, I blew a tire...that was scary-fun!
