    Hello,

    Have posted in quite sometime. So of you may remember a few posts before. I'm a professional stuntman/stunt driver. Prior to stunts I was a TT driver for around 8 years in my younger days. Mostly with a Roadranger. I ] have an upcoming job involving this Peterbilt, no trailer. Have to come in at a high rate of speed and stop short of hitting a car. This is for TV and I very rarely get a rehearsal and barely enough time to adjust my mirrors. Often it's get in and go. Movies allow you much more time and rehearsal days.

    That being said, I like to research the trucks and specific transmission and just be as prepared as I can. So based on this picture what Peterbilt is this and what transmission can i expect?

    Pete 379. I would assume a 13 or 18 speed transmission.

    Is that license plate supposed to say “AM BEST” or is that just a coincidence? Because it looks pretty rad.

    I have an NDA but it's a CBS/Paramount+ show. After it airs, I can divulge. Stupid but that's the way some shows are.
     
    Catmando Thanks this.

    Ha! Thanks. It won't be that famous after the editors butcher the scene so you can barely see the action. Lol
     
    Catmando Thanks this.

    If you can share the last 6 we can surely get you the exact specs as the truck is originally spec’d.
