John Cudd’s 1986 Peterbilt 395

John Cudd’s 1986 Peterbilt 395 is a tribute to the 101st Airborne Division and the 501st Delta Raiders (The Screaming Eagles), with which he served during the Vietnam War. The Sterling, Colo., native, who is leased to Jim Brammer Trucking and hauls refrigerated freight, had Outlaw Customs rebuild the engine — a 425-hp B-model Caterpillar with 18-speed transmission. Military-style lights were added to the front and rear. Most of the exterior add-ons are blacked-out to fit with the military theme of the truck. The interior of the cab is also within theme — on the inside of the door is engraved, “Welcome home brother.”
