Though the urns resemble somewhat scaled-down versions of the chromed canister you’ll find on either side of the cowl of classically styled Petes and Kenworths, they’re sealed to protect your loved one’s cremated remains from the elements as you “keep their memory alive and in the wind,” says biker and Final Ride Urns proprietor Steve Radz. Created with enthusiasts of various vehicles in mind, these urns, Radz says, “can be mounted to any vehicle…. The pilot can forever fly. Policemen and women, paramedics and firefighters can continue to answer their calls.” And, presumably, truckers can stay within a few feet of the CB.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
