Rhino is wright

If you go into special features on the dvd with the producers and Patrick Swayze They say that this truck is a 1994 Peterbilt 379 cause they show have Patrick Swayze was trained how to drive the truck they tell him he's driving a 1994 Peterbilt 379 in the movie The year up there should be 1994 Which this truck is now in Australia

Hi guy's,

I spoke to Kraig myself, he has the info on all the trucks used in the movie, Kraig told me that all the trucks were the same year so, they were all 1994 Peterbilt 379's, he told me also they were 4 trucks in the movie, he said his truck was the only surviving one & he told me he owns the last truck which would be Truck #4, Kraig said that his truck was used for all of the shots before they smashed the passenger head light on the truck except for driving out of the garage, notice while Junior is driving the truck out of the garage it has lower stacks, he said that was Truck #3, which took the most damage out of all the trucks, Trucks #1 & #2 were Identical and those 2 trucks, were also very damaged, Kraig said that, the reasoning for Truck #4 surviving is that there wasen't that damage to it, although, there was damage to it, it was fixed by Universal Studio's, Kraig said that Truck #3 was brought to a scrapping yard after filming due to so much damage, actually Truck #3 was so much damaged before filming was done that it crapped out during filming and was just useless, notice when Jack hit's Red's pick up into the bushes, listen to the sound of the truck, you can hear it crapping out, that was Truck #3 that was the last scene they ever used it for, I know Truck #2 was used when Red used his truck to hit crew's truck at the end after the FBI gives Crew's back his trucker license, and you can notice the rear axles on the passenger the rims where damaged that was it for Truck #2, Truck #1 was used when Red pushed Crew's Truck into the oversea's storage creates and also when Crew's hits into Red's then it re-appeared one more time to his the car when Red "You wanna Play, Lets Play" and after that, that was the last of Truck #1, Truck #4 is the one in the big main picture, if you look at the passenger head light the headlight isn't smashed they just removed the head light and look at the blinker that's still attached to the headlight as well, Truck #4 was like that, Kraig also that Truck #1 & #2 were brought back and they used the parts off of those 2 trucks to fix Truck #4,Kraig also said the gloves Pat wore in the movie were laying down on the bed in the sleeper, which he also owns today from the movie as well, below is a interview
with Patrick Swayze about the movie

I know Kraig Personally, and he doesn't have the trailer there was only one trailer used for the movie and it was damaged badly after the movie finished filming and after they used Kraig's Truck and the trailer together in a musice video the trailer ended up being scrapped, here's the music video down below

nope 3406 Cat 425HP with a Fuller Eaton 9 Speed Transmission pro shift equiped with a jack break, all the trucks in the movie were all 1994's, all of them were powered by 3406 425HP Cat's and all of them also had Fuller Eaton 9 Speed Pro Shift Transmissions equiped with Jack Break's even though the script and they said on the movie it was a 10 Speed it was a 9 Speed

This series is to be continued of how they switched trucks in and out of the Scene's, every shot I have is Truck #3 which took the most abuse out of all trucks ued during filming, it was never used for a full scene due to motor problems during filming, this is why it was the main stunt truck all the photo's above are where it was used, there's some other shots too, but you'll get the hint as soon as I explain where they switched truck

Truck #3 was scrapped after filming, this truck no longer exist

i dont know if any one paid it any attention but the trailer that was used in the movie on this peterbilt is a unique trailer because if u notice it was a container trailer and if you know they dont put lights on any containers the lights are on the trailer that carrys the container but in black dog this container had lights on it top to bottom on the sides all the way across and u cant say it was on the trailer because with the container was on the crane over the water when jack had earl dump out some of the guns you could still see the lights on the side even though they wherent on and in the front of the container you could see the wireing box for all of the lights

Kraig Cummins has not owned this truck since 2006 when he sold it to Dave in Queensland. The picture posted earlier by GTO 990 with the company name on the door was taken in Queensland where the truck now lives.
