This 2021 Peterbilt 389, “White Diamond,” is owned by Dale Ricks, out of Hull, Iowa. The rig is powered by a 565-hp Cummins X15 with an 18-speed and 3:25 rears. It sits on a 295-inch wheelbase.

Ricks ordered the truck new and had it fully customized at Sioux Falls Peterbilt with a custom deck plate, custom rear bumper, air bags on the front, 8-inch stacks and had everything painted to match. The truck also features a custom painted floor and dash.

The trailer is a 2021 Great Dane 53-foot slider spread axle with a Thermo King S-600 that was also painted to match the frame on the truck. The rails on the trailer have also been painted, as well as the trailer’s two fuel tanks.

Ricks hauls ice cream for Wells Blue Bunny in Le Mars, Iowa. He’s leased to Western Provisions out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and runs all over the country.
