John Sabo, out of Bernville, Pennsylvania, owns this 1990 Peterbilt 362 cabover, which used to haul his antique tractor and hay for his horses. The rig, like Sabo, is retired now. It started out hauling furniture in the South, then it moved into hauling groceries. Sabo then bought the truck and did some upgrades, including stretching the frame by four feet, adding a stainless bumper, rear fenders, tail light and mudflap brackets and more. He also had the truck painted by a local Maaco paint shop with a clear coat paint. Additionally, Sabo changed all the lights to LED and added a battery box between the frame rails. The rig is powered by a 310-hp Cat 3406B with an Eaton 9-speed.
