Shawn Ward and the rest of the Ward Manufacturing well-digging crew uses this 1997 Kenworth T800, powered by a 525-hp Cummins N14, to pull a heater that mixes hot water with sand and sends it into the ground to fracture rock. The rig has separate CD players in the tractor and the control house.

Users of now can post photographs and information about their trucks in Truck Gallery, a new section on the eTrucker home page. You can browse all the pictures or sort them by brand, year, model or engine. To load a digital picture of your truck, follow the simple directions in the section.
