In the 11 years he’s owned the ’97 Peterbilt 379, he’s stretched its frame to 312 inches, hopped up the truck’s Cat to 625 hp, installed wood flooring, added a flip bumper and painted a set of green flames down the tractor’s hood. Fisher says he’s put 1.6 million miles on the rig, and, he adds, “I don’t plan on getting rid of it.”
