    Prototype? Looks like a eyesore wrap job. I saw a hurricane express with the same wrap.

    Well, could be but I’ve saw some Ford prototype trucks wrapped in this same type of camo. Supposedly it helps other companies not be able to see the shape of the body as good. :shrugs:

    It’s one of the new 579’s. Hurricane, TMC, and some others had some of the early test trucks and they were wrapped like that.

    I've heard and seen that too. I'm not sure about this one. But, I can tell you this, why do they bother? There's just two types of trucks out there. All plastic trucks look alike and so do all hoods.

    What engine you have in your hot rod, sure does look clean.

    There is a wine hauling company here in NorCal call Skikos Trucking, and every one of their trucks has a custom paint job. Some of them are really bizarre and I wouldn't be caught dead driving them.

    Those are pretty hideous. I'm not sure why companies do stuff like that. Big money for one 'oh wow' moment. I just don't get it. Those wraps are thousands per vehicle now.

    Paccar redesigned the 579 and the 680 because of the Phase 2 greenhouse gas standards. The updated ones are hitting the roads now. Production should be switched over by now.
