is one thing you should know about Steve and Melissa Woodard's
98 Peterbilt "Hillbilly Hilton". It is a working truck. As with
most of the trucks you will see on LargeCarMag, the Woodards truck
looks like it does nothing but travel from show to show collecting
trophies. It has over 600,000 miles on the odometer and hauls
jet engines from airport to airport for Southern Pride. It is
very much a working truck.
beautiful Pete was purchased from Joplin Pete in Joplin, MO. Before
it was delivered there, it was taken to Double Eagle Industries
to be outfitted with a 150" sleeper. Inside the sleeper you will
find all the comforts of home including a full shower and bathroom
and a hardwood floor. What's included in the sleeper is impressive
enough but even more impressive is the way it has been decorated
by Melissa. Take a look at the pics and see for yourself.
Inside the cab is just as impressive with tons of wood and polished
stainless steel and a one of a kind billet aluminum steering wheel.
the outside, the truck is painted purple metallic for the base
and purple pearl on the sleeper, roof caps and the frame. The
front and rear fenders have tribal flames pained in Chromillusion
paint designed by Melissa and painted by Joplin Pete. Joplin Pete
also outfitted the truck with bras on the front fenders and tool
boxes. For the front bumper, the Woodards have a 22" Goldwing.
They also have a bowtie visor and massive 8" stacks. The 98 Pete
has a 525 Cummins and a 13 speed transmission with a 345" wheelbase.
You can be sure the Woodards and their dog Maggie get a very smooth
Woodards have succeeded in putting together one of the most impressive
trucks inside and out and are two of the kindest people you will
