Semi Truck Flat Top Conversion-Texas Chrome Shop Offers 379 Pete Flat-Top Roof Panel

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Those who are interested in building custom semi trucks know that there are many details that go into this. Not only do you need knowledge of what you are doing, but it can take a lot of time and money as well. There is nothing that should scare you away from doing this, though.


Truckers often talk of customizing their vehicles when it comes to specifications that will make it perform better. This means being sure it has accessories that make loading and unloading easier, tires and aerodynamic features that will save truckers when it comes to fuel, and engine power that can last a long time on the road. One of the best ways of getting started is to look at what others are doing. For instance, attend custom show semi trucks to see the creations of others who are interested in the same hobby as you.


379 Petes with flat-top stand-up sleepers are the hottest ticket in Custom Town right now but they are hard to find. So why not convert your own UltraCab sleeper into a flat-top using the new TCS Flat-Top Conversion.


Texas Chrome Shop’s flat-top roof panel for the Ultracab Peterbilt 379 sleeper. Roof cab fits the 63″ stand-up sleeper designed to give the truck a “flat top” look. Must be installed with huck rivets, (not included) and the original roof bow must be shortened. Interior is available upon request.


Texas Chrome Shop generally has all their items in stock and ready to ship to you. They take great pride in what they do, and offer the best professional customer service possible. Accessorizing your rig is not just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle.

Massive Blizzard Paralyzes Truckers, Leads to ‘Staggering’ Losses for Carriers

Friday, February 11th, 2011

At Beaver Express Service in Woodward, Okla., near the state’s panhandle, company president Mike Stone spent most of last week trying to figure out which of his terminals, scattered across six states, could reopen after a record-breaking blizzard buried them.

The massive storm, which started in New Mexico and Texas on Jan. 31, paralyzed Oklahoma and shut down Interstate 70 in Missouri on Feb. 1 before crossing the Great Lakes states into the Northeast.

By midweek Feb. 2, the sun was out over Stone’s Beaver Express office and the 50-mph winds had died down, but temperatures were still south of zero and the snow that idled his 300 trucks made many roads impassable.

“Yesterday, shutting down the entire company, that’s the first time that’s happened that I can remember in . . . forever,” Stone said last Wednesday.

He is the third generation of his family to run the LTL carrier. “It was so bad everywhere that we just couldn’t operate.”

Interstate 70, the major freight artery between Kansas City and St. Louis, did not reopen until 6:30 a.m. Feb. 2.

Illinois Gov. Patrick Quinn dispatched the National Guard to transport state troopers in Humvees to reach motorists and truckers on the Illinois Tollway.

In northern Ohio, where 14 inches of snow and ice covered the roads Feb. 1 and 2, officials restricted highways to emergency use and large employers closed.
