This Peterbilt 589 was displayed along with a 389 in the Peterbilt Genuine Accessories booth at the Mid-America Trucking Show to showcase custom aftermarket packages designed by the truck maker for the models.

At the Mid-America Trucking Show, Peterbilt introduced a line of accessories packages with a Model 589 on display on the show floor, showcasing exterior bright parts and various lighting and interior elements now available through the company's extensive dealer network. 

The accessories are crafted from high-quality materials to deliver fit and finish and unrivaled driver appeal, the company said, and at MATS, Product Marketing Director Jacob White offered a tour around a Model 589 on display to illustrate the various elements that are part of the accessories packages. 

Exterior package 

While individual features can be ordered alone, each of three packages also come as a unit, noted White. For the exterior, the fenderette featuring the Peterbilt logo is part of that along with the sunvisor (see above), rocker panels and wheel covers. 

'Starting at the front,' said White, the fenderettes that protect the front of the fenders feature a 'nice classy Peterbilt logo' embossed there, and the fenders themselves surrounds/extenders."Starting at the front," said White, the fenderettes that protect the front of the fenders feature a "nice classy Peterbilt logo" embossed there, and the fenders themselves surrounds/extenders.
