Matt Kunkle's 2007 Peterbilt 379


Linton, North Dakota-based Matt Kunkle bought this 2007 Peterbilt 379 from his former employer in December 2019 and started his own business, Kunkle Trucking. In November 2021, he got the truck repainted and made some custom additions. He added a rear window to the sleeper, added a big door to the passenger side of the sleeper and more. Kunkle runs a single-truck operation pulling a hopper and a step deck. The hopper does mostly field and farm work, while the step deck mainly moves honey bees. He also does power-only work for some companies around his area. The truck is powered by a Cummins with an 18-speed.
