Nice! What did you do to it besides drool on it?
Install the LED light bar, Amber LED bar on the trailer, clear LED cab lights.

Its coming back in two weeks to get all new air cleaner lights and to fix the seat in it.

The Driver seat has a heater, massage, and vibrator in it

I love them! It runs in the family. My grandpa worked for the state on the big rigs they have, my uther grandpa drove a pete pulling mobal homes. My uncle worked for peterbelt and now for international total 22 years now and my dad worked for freightliner up till the day he died witch was 24 years and has the new style truck on his stone. Now I have all his tools and I'm planing on going to school to open up my own shop. So I'm a fan by blood.

I enjoy them, some days I hate driving them. We just have 2 old farm trucks, but gets the job done for us when needed. The day I hit the lottery I'm buying a daycab Lonestar in flat black...

I drive 1 that looks alot like that Big stroker and i pull the exact same qaud axle low boy trailer. Somedays its alot of fun doing it, other times it can be a nightmare dealing with horrible drivers especially when your dragging around oversized and over weight loads. Its a very nice lookin pete, but, IMO that wing on the hood needs to go.

When I check out more rigs I pass than girls, I would say yes, I have a certain fondness for them.

Have always loved them, grew up in the cab of a truck as dad ran 6 of them, spent some time behind the wheel myself running one of his cattle pots.....

Something about boys and big trucks! I used to drive fire engines around when I was a volunteer. I appreciate the drivers the most, It burns my a$$ when I see "Not a truck route" around towns. The same people that voted to have that sign there would be the first ones griping when they couldn't get the cargo off that trailer.

Same here, not really a huge fan of driving them, but they sure do look cool. We gotta a 70's KW, 80's Fruitliner, and I dunno what year but I'd guess 70's White Western Star Dumptruck.

I'm gonna be haulin rock a bit this summer with the KW and White. While I'm not excited, I guess it beats doin a lot of other stuff....
