The FedEx buyout wasn't all that recent; but they hadn't re branded them.
I believe they are part of FedEx Custom Critical.

I came upon this very clean looking rig at the northbound rest area on I-79 near Slippery Rock, Pa. on Monday 10/9.  I like the way the paint matches the FedEx logo.

That's true, I'm not sure what it is, but it almost looks like a modified Peterbilt bunk.

That sleeper does look alot better than the ones with the squared off corners that are so common.

Awesome truck. Very clean, sharp colors and not a lot of bling.

Paul, do they still have Passport Transport on the door somewhere with the Fedex logo?
