“Miss BeeHaving” is owner-operator Mike Wilkinson’s aerodynamic Kenworth T680 show truck – something of a rare sight among traditional showpieces with more squared-off angles. The truck was among those on display at the 2021 Shell Rotella SuperRigs working truck show in Hampshire, Illinois, where it placed second in the Tractor division.

Wilkinson, who's leased to Floyd Gibbons Trucking out of Brunner, Ontario, Canada, pulls a low-profile step-deck hauling mostly farm machinery and oversized freight out of Canada into the U.S. This rig is the second yellow truck Wilkinson has purchased. He says with this truck he wanted to go against the grain, so he spec'd out an aerodynamic T680, then added the green and black striping. 

Mike Wilkinson's 2020 Kenworth T680With some help from Jim Higgins of Higgins Designs and 12 Gauge Customs, Wilkinson got the stripes to match the truck's body lines.

Among custom upgrades: the 12 Gauge visor; Aranda front bumper; deck plate, rear T-bar and fenders likewise from 12 Gauge; panel lights; cab skirts and much more.

Honeycomb pattern upholstery in Mike Wilkinson's 2020 Kenworth T680The well-appointed interior, with a unique honeycomb-style upholstery to match the "Miss BeeHaving" moniker, was done by J. Richards Interior and Stitch Custom Interiors, who did the seats and door panels.

Under the hood is a 510-hp Paccar MX13 with an 18-speed and 3:55 rears.
