Peterbilt show trucks are no doubt, in a class of their own, among custom big rigs. Some are practical working trucks and some are created solely for the truck show circuit.
Big rig owners who customize their ride, aim to stand out in a crowd, with their semis 'decked out to the nines'!
These tricked out trucks are meant to be seen from a distance as they roll down the highway....lookin' large and lookin' cool. Many of these custom Petes, compete at truck shows.
The goal of customizing a show truck? Being the absolute best in their class!
Petes seem to have all the 'right stuff'.....they're low, lean and cool and that's the stuff that grabs our attention!
Mmmmmmm.......there's nothing quite like a Pete, all decked out, lookin' fine.
Here's some of the coolest Peterbilt show trucks
that have caught our attention!

Why a Pete?
........When a trucker purchases a new Pete, he is buying one of the finest pieces of machinery, money can buy!
Pete owners know that they are paying 'top dollar' for their rig. But they also know that it will outperform and outshine anything else on the road! That's why diehard Peterbilt fans, pay the big bucks for THEIR rigs! ALL Peterbilt trucks look great, even the plain ones ordered in bulk, sitting on the dealer lots!A Small Extra Investment Can Really Make a Difference!
........You've already taken the plunge and invested in a Pete. By adding just a few accessories and a few tasteful Peterbilt truck parts, you can have a very cool looking ride, for not much extra money!
After spending the big dough on a truck, just a bit of extra cash, can really add some pizz-azz, some spark, and zing to the look! AND that's what customizing a rig is all about..... The look, the uniqueness and the 'wow' factor!
Even some minor custom work to a semi can really make a difference in the overall look of the rig!
The truth of the matter is this.... even if it's a plain old Pete without any extra bling, you may you feel as I do.....
'I've never seen a Peterbilt that I didn't like!!"
Big truck sleepers return. What was once an extravagance for the big strappers in trucking, is now a practical means for a trucker to increase his profit margin and be comfortable living on the road.
