This 2000 Peterbilt 379 was one of the boldest trucks at the recent Pride & Polish show in Dallas. The all-red (even the grille) Pete won Best of Show in Working Bobtail at the Great American Trucking Show.
The truck also won First Place in the Custom Paint and Working Bobtail (2000 and older) category. Beatty Body Works of Oklahoma City, Okla., did the viper red paint job.
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.
