During the 1990s Freightliner made a number of strategic partnerships and acquisitions. The first of these was in 1995, when the company aligned itself with Oshkosh Custom Chassis and then renamed it Freightliner Custom Chassis, which manufactured underpinnings for the walk in style vans that were used for parcel delivery. In 1996 Freightliner acquired American LaFrance, which was a century old company which was responsible for producing fire apparatuses. In 1998 they acquired another company called Thomas Built Buses, which was a North Carolina based firm that specialized in bus manufacture.

Common Freightliner M2 106 A/C Problems
A number of A/C issues have been discovered in the Freightliner M2 106. One involves the back A/C, where it will only blow out warm air while its junction lines for the frontal evaporator don’t cool down. A second issue has been described where the truck is moving along the road with the air conditioning on, but when the vehicle begins to slow the A/C will shut off and not reactivate until the system has been shut down for a time. This often coincides with the computer not turning on the radiator fan. Mechanics who have investigated this issue believe that it comes from a sensor problem.
