John Jaikes owns this 1999 Kenworth W900L, which today has 3.1 million miles on the odometer. It's powered by a 550-hp Cat with a 13-speed. He runs from his Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, home base to California and back to Hunts Point in New York City, hauling plastic and produce, and occasionally cheese out of Wisconsin. Jaikes has done all the installation of the 624 lights on the truck and trailer and custom made the stainless, which is featured throughout. The truck is painted purple for royalty, he says. He pulls a Utility 3000R reefer.
