Independent’s 1986 long-hooded Pete 359 refer hauler

| July 25, 2014

Kenny MorrowIndependent Kenny Morrow hauls fresh and frozen chicken for Tyson with this 1986 extended-hood Peterbilt 359. He bought the truck 17 years ago, he said, and it’s the third 359 he’s owned. The truck is bearing down on the 2 million mile mark, and Morrow says he does all of the necessary work on the truck himself. His dad started their Morrow Trucking Co., based in St. Charles, Mo., in 1984, and Morrow says he took over the business in 2011. The truck is powered by a 425-hp 3406B Cat and a 13-speed transmission with 3.55 rears.

    Nice clean older rig that looks like a rig should. I really like the old school look without all the new custom aftermarket stuff on it. Not that I am against that stuff, but a clean stock looking older rig is a great reflection on what this lifestyle used to be about. And it isn’t a job, it’s a lifestyle.
