On this anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, here’s a look at a patriotic-themed Peterbilt 388 that features graphics honoring 9/11 first responders and U.S. military members that served overseas following the attacks.
Josh Raimann, owner of Wells, Minnesota-based Raimann Farms, showed his truck at the 2019 Shell Rotella SuperRigs at Trail’s Travel Center in Albert Lea, Minnesota.
As he explains in the video above, he bought the 2011-model Pete in early 2018 and took several months to find the pictures he wanted to use for the rig’s graphics.
The front end features American flag graphics that, on the passenger side, give way to an image of firefighters battling a blaze. The back of the day cab features a photo of firefighters raising an American flag at Ground Zero in the days following the attacks. The driver’s side of the cab depicts the military fighting overseas.
Finally, the top of the hood features an image of One World Trade Center, the main building in the rebuilt World Trade Center complex.
He uses the truck to haul his farm’s corn, as well as asphalt, sand and gravel.
