Where are they going to put the sign light? Maybe on the mirror bracket. Either way, I've basically only seen 579's browsing on TruckPaper, it actually looks really good with the visor and lights ready for the road.

I never seem to understand the double bunk option for a fleet(s) with predominantly solo drivers.  I know, resale, blah blah blah....thank god my Pete at Marten was before they ordered them with double bunks.

I still do not like the looks of the PeteLiner, even if it's Black and Chrome.  :-\ The paint on those bumpers will not last long...

The chrome bumper option will be a BIG improvement in the look.

Very nice trucks. I see from the earlier facebook posting and pictures they are ditching the supersingle tires as well.

The chrome bumper will really dress the 579 up nicely.

Much better with that polished bumper!  But this design still needs full chassis skirts to look right.  The aero cab, hood and the sleeper look gangly without the chassis skirts.  IMHO.

I actually like the 579 better without side skirts, and with stacks, just like this one. And the chrome bumper and mirrors sure help a lot, too! Very sharp. :)
