Centerville, Kan., resident Bob Morse says he “never expected to own something like this” 2010 Peterbilt 389. He’s talking about all the aftermarket work he and his son, Levi, put into the truck. After a few lights and new exhaust pipes, Morse says “it just kind of took off and became a working show truck.” Named after a friend, Molly is equipped with a 550-hp Cummins and an 18-speed transmission, hauling general freight nationwide.



Humpin’ & Dumpin’

This sand and stone hauler pierces the darkness with more than 160 lights, says owner-operator Randy Johnson of Cambridge, Md. He bought this 2005 Kenworth W900L, equipped with a 625-hp Caterpillar and 18-speed transmission, in 2009. Johnson has been working the concrete and stone yards for more than 20 years with his company, Dorchester Dumpin’.

Will Work for Chrome

This 2005 Kenworth W900B, owned by Wally Austin of Bradford, Ohio, is powered by a 430-hp Caterpillar and an 8-speed transmission. The interior shows hardwood flooring and chrome gauges, air-conditioning vents and upholstery buttons. Austin says the truck hauls asphalt and stone for road projects “and looks good doing it.”
