David Miller's 2005 Kenworth W900L: Long restoration process done

Updated Feb 5, 2023
David Miller's 2005 Kenworth W900L

This 2005 Kenworth W900L is mostly retired, as is owner David Miller, doing mostly light farm work today. It's powered by a Cat C15 6NZ with an Eaton 18-speed. The truck features a 14,000-pound steer axle, 46,000-pound Eaton locker drives on an eight-bag air ride with a double frame. It also has a standard flattop sleeper and rides on 24.5s. Miller did a full out-of-frame overhaul on the rig last year, resurrecting the truck after it sat six years. He did all the work himself, including the paint, which he says "is not the prettiest job, but cleaned it up some."
