Jason Gregg of Ontario, Canada, uses this 1988 Freightliner FLD, powered by a 425-hp Caterpillar and eight-speed transmission, for a personal hobby – showing horses. Gregg, who shows at regional events in the Northeast, has added 6-inch stacks and a custom bumper, and he painted the truck red and white.
Janesville, Wis., resident Jason Arneson spec’d his 2005 Kenworth W900L with a 500-hp Caterpillar and 13-speed transmission for a driver who worked for his Jerry Arneson Trucking for 21 years. Before driving the truck, however, the driver died and Travis Olson took over driving duties. In honor of him, the company kept the truck’s moniker, It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere – a name given by the truck’s original driver. The KW, which has three detailed murals, hauls grain, feed ingredients and food-grade products.
