It also has LED light panels on both sides of each breather, chrome Peterbilt plates under each headlamp, chrome visors over the headlights, 12-inch chrome drop bumper and a 16-inch chrome drop visor. Inside the truck is a 16-gauge dashboard, leather driver’s seat, extended shifter, chrome toggle switches and more. The truck is used to haul grade A raw milk from dairy farms.
