    Awesome truck. Love to see a remake of my 379X again and a flat top version as well.

  2. Chris L. says:

    Nice truck. Be really cool to see a new 379X remake.. mines worn out

  3. Allan McCullough says:

    Why can’t the hideous def tank be hidden somewhere?

    • Brad M says:

      I strongly agree. It would be great if they installed it in the fuel tank and used a baffle or something similar to separate the fluid. You’d lose a little fuel capacity but if you’re running 150 a side, it wouldn’t make that much of an impact. It’d be great to see it “clean” again on a big truck.

    Your Peterbuild still have a long way to go to meet my standards.
    Driveline vibration.
    Interior lights
    Squeaks in cab
    Poor wiring
    Prehistoric instrumentation
    mirrors that shake
    Before you blow your horns in Canada, Back to the drawing board.

      Fred-you could be a little more general in your judgement,all Volvos and Freightliners are not perfect ask any mechanic! I have 50 years of driving history and not a PERFECT tractor yet.

  5. john wihksne says:

    Nice to see a Traditional cab in a time of ugly aerodynamic set back-sloped nose tractors!

  6. Billy says:

    Does it come with a mechanical CAT 3406? Would be a nice glider to make into a “real” Petercar.

  7. John Seaurse says:

    How many of them are being made?
