PDI’s ‘breast cancer truck’ on display

| June 15, 2012

Performance Diesel Inc., the St. George, Utah-based engine performance shop, has its Support the Cause, pink 2001 Peterbilt 379 on display next to its booth in the Pride & Polish area. At the booth (#1932), it’s selling raffle tickets for the truck’s giveaway, which is slated for Nov. 3. Ticket prices are: $10 for one ticket, $25 for three tickets, $50 for seven tickets and $100 for 16 tickets.

All proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and PDI’s Shawn Barney says he hopes the truck’s raffle will raise about $80,000.

PDI teamed up with other aftermarket shops and some OEs to transform the truck into what it is today. PDI did the engine performance work, equipping the Cummins ISX with its Big Boss kit. Jones Performance donated the hood, and Lincoln Chrome gave the truck straight pipes and new stacks.

4 State Trucks offered up the pink floor, and 12ga. Customs added the steps, an air ride kit and the visor.

Also at the PDI booth, Barney and his crew are showing their performance products, namely, its turbo, manifolds and tuning kits.
