They are considered by many truckers, to be the #1 big rig, bar none... The BEST OF THE BEST!

as the ‘cadillac of big trucks’….. and with good reason!
Here’s some of the reasons we love Petes....
Top 10 reasons to love a pete
These trucks are thought to be the best big rig for many reasons..... here are some of the best things about a Pete!
- a smooth ride
- the long hood…has the
appeal and classic look of a ‘hot sports car’… in a long haul truck.
- The low ride. The
airbag system allows the body to sit lower on the frame than other
trucks…. Also reminiscent of the ‘sports car look’.
- The body is light-weight....makes
it easier to scale, where truck weight is an issue.
- Panel construction.
The body is completely constructed with panels, which makes repair easier,
more efficient and less expensive than other rigs...just drill out the
damaged panel and slap in a new one!
- The hood. The straight
flat hood is appealing because this configuration would provide the space
to accommodate any engine.
- The shape. When most
folks think of the configuration of a semi, it takes the shape of a
Pete.... their classic shape has been one of their biggest and best selling features.
- Easy to customize.
Extensive array of Peterbilt accessories and parts,
readily available through their dealer network, as well as stocked
pro custom shops stocked exclusively with custom goodies, for Peterbilt show and custom rigs.
- Retaining their ‘classic’
look. The long hood Pete really haven’t changed much over the years. This is a
bonus when buying new or used Peterbilt truck parts. The differences
between one model year to the next, are for the most part, very minimal.This may be the top reason Petes are thought to be the best big rig money can buy!
- More good looks. Because
the body of Peterbilts are low, the stacks are naturally higher. The result? More
chrome, a sleeker, sharper, longer, leaner overall look!
