Brian Davis (on the step ladder) tidies up Wilson trailer. Brother Tom is on the ground.

The answer is: Forty-six speakers powered by 20 batteries.

The correct response — in the form of a question — is, “What’s on board the 2005 Peterbilt 379 that the Davis brothers of Owensville, Ind. are showing at the PKY Truck Beauty competition at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville this week?”

At the show, the Pete’ — known as Super Freak — is put to a Wilson hopper-bottom trailer, and loaded with a powerful sound system. As a result, the rig functioned as the unofficial provider of the show’s musical background Wednesday as owners readied their trucks for the show.

“It’s a hobby gone wild,” jokes Tom Davis, who with brother Brian, is taking a break from their farm and 30-truck fleet. The Davis brothers farm corn, west and beans on 2,500 acres and haul mostly agricultural commodities and far equipment with their trucks.
