It’s the Western Star of the week and time for a swig of Jolt Cola to start your day… Western Star style! This beautiful 68” Stratosphere 5700 makes a statement, something like, “I own the road, and don’t even try to stop me!”
The Aztek silver with black roof cap/fender and chassis fairings sets a great background for the stainless, polished aluminum/chrome-plated add-ons (most of them factory, by the way). And what’s that little hood scoop on the top of the hood? A nice add-on from the folks at the Custom Truck Services.
This Western Star 5700 is powered by a Detroit DD15 505hp engine at 1,750 lbs of torque, DT12 overdrive transmission to drive a set of Meritor 40K, 3.08 geared, dual locker banjos – this sets the bar for bad ass!
Also, just to ensure comfort is accomplished and maintained, whether it’s in the heat of the south or the frosties of the north, the Thermo King tri-Pac will do its thing.
As another little FYI, this customer couldn’t just have one these. Ten of these bad boys are roaming the eastern US!
Thanks to Bobby Slade, from Heritage Equipment in Beckley, West Virginia, for sharing this “King of Mileage” with attitude!
