James Burgess, out of Orangeburg, South Carolina, hauls mostly Feed Ingredients with his 2020 Freightliner Coronado and 2021 Timpte Hopper. The rig is powered by a 500-hp Detroit with an Eaton 13-speed with a 3:42 ratio. He hasn’t done much custom work with the truck other than some chrome gauge bezels, buttons, interior lighting and matching shifter and brake handles. On the to-do list more lights on the exterior (truck and trailer) and wood floor.
