This months readers ride is owned by Ronnie Brees of Greenfield, Indiana. Ronnie has been involved in the trucking industry since 1961 and figures this will be his last truck so he bought exactly what he wanted. His Imron Red Metallic 2000 Kenworth T800 rides on a 209" wheelbase. It is powered by a 430 horsepower 3406E Cat which is routed through a 15 speed fuller transmission.
The dump body is a R&S 17 ft aluminum body installed by TEBCO in Indianapolis, Indiana. As far as other options on Ronnie's KW, he says other than heated seats, if Kenworth offers it, he's got it.

Ronnie hauls crushed stone, sand, and gravel out of three different plants owned by Irving Materials, Inc and delivers within a 45 mile radius of his home. If Ronnie ever gets tired of dump truckin, he ordered the truck with a tractor package with air and light hookups behind the cab and at the rear frame cross member.

Ronnie certainly has a dump truck to be proud of and I would like to thank him for his contribution to the magazine.
