DMS Transport small fleet owner Derek Smith decides against a new glider or truck upgrade in favor of a customization of his 2005 Peterbilt 379 for regional/local grain hauls.
Manuel's combo -- with a 2003 Benson flatbed -- showed at the 2013 Fitzgerald Truck Show and Overdrive's Pride & Polish in Crossville, Tenn.
Mike Manuel on his small flatbed fleet's custom showpiece, "Custombilt 359": "I'm in the hauling business, so my trucks will represent me." What a representative it is!
Davis custom-built the FLD after locating it in a salvage yard in 2000 -- today he hauls reefer freight with it primarily between Illinois, Texas, Florida and his home base in Michigan.
