My '95 Pete

Told 379 Longhood I would post some pics and a little about my old truck so here it is.

1995 Peterbilt with a 425hp 3406 3ZJ, Eaton 15 over, Eaton 355's, on a 291 wheelbase. Has a little over 330,000 on overhaul including all gears in the frt. cover. Little over 250,000 on pump overhaul. Transmission was rebuilt same time motor was and both rear ends were replaced with new ones about 1 1/2yrs ago.

I have had the truck for a little over 5yrs. It originally came with an E model (5EK) but the previous owner changed it to the mechanical it has now along with the trans which was a 10 speed.

I pull a flatbed with it and haul what I consider to be more local than regional. Not more than about 250 mile one way. I am leased to a small family owned outfit that is mostly dedicated to a large company here in town that has a sawmill, particleboard plant, and a fiberboard plant all right here. I have been loading out of one of these plants everyday for close to 10yrs. now. Not a bad gig. Home everynight and have managed to make a pretty decent living for myself and the family for all these years.

If you happen to see me about out here in the great state of Texas give me a holler. They call me "too hotty" (long story there) on the radio.

below are a few pictures of my old Pete, though if you've seen it lately it has a primered hood. Had a guy in a 4 wheeler come out of nowhere and whacked me few months ago. Messed up the hood and bumper, knocked the front end back, then he spun around and back into my drives where he caused a little damage also. Anyway was a mess there for a while but finally got everything straightened out. Will be getting the whole thing repainted shortly.

very pretty Peterbilt

Please advise the wheelbase length and the sleeper size? 63 inch on the later I assume. And what are all the holes on the frame rails? Aren't they kinda close to the flange? How many gallon tanks?

The proportions of your rig seem perfect to me. From stem t stern.....gorgeous.
