This immaculate Peterbilt is owned by Steve Ramsbotham ('Rambo') of Levin. This truck is more than just eXtreme, its eXtraordinary! Not only was this Peterbilt privately imported from the US to New Zealand, but it has also worked more than 3 years and travelled 44 states with the same owner. Hard to believe, when it looks like it's just rolled off the factory floor!
The rig is a 2000 model 379EXHD Peterbilt with a 127'' bonnet and has been working in the country for little more than three weeks. It usually hauls general freight on a B-train all over the North Island.
In the States the truck worked for a Memphis chemical company and was fitted with a 63'' Peterbilt sleeper. To allow for local conditions the sleeper had to be removed, although reluctantly according to Rambo, and the chassis shortened by 2 meters! The conversion to right hand drive was done by White Bros. Panelworks Ltd in Hamilton.
