The truck, a highly customized 1984 Peterbilt 359 owned by Kevin McIntyre of Port Charlotte, Fla., was entered in the contest by Outlaw Customs of Henderson, Colo. It was the second consecutive year that Outlaw Customs won a major award at the event, taking “People’s Choice” honors for its entry last year.

“We had the truck for a year and worked on it nonstop for the last six months,” said Alex Gobel, founder and co-owner of Outlaw Customs. “We wanted to create a sure winner. We did a tremendous amount of work on the truck body, interior and mechanicals, then came up with a paint scheme and turned it over to Motorsports Concepts down the road for the finish. We chose PPG’s DELFLEET(R) Evolution for the kind of look we knew would draw attention to this rig.”

The team at Motorsports Concepts, led by owner Jarod Swantkoski, body technician Barry Krans and painter Jeff Carmin, followed Gobel’s design using Delfleet F3975 and F3993 primers, FBC 3CT 5851 White Diamond and 908346 Sunset Orange basecoats and F3906 clearcoat to give the truck its lustrous, award-winning finish.

“The work these builders do is just phenomenal,” said JJ Wirth, PPG brand manager, commercial segments. “We’re always amazed at the designs they create, and we are absolutely excited PPG coatings are part of it.”

Prior to painting KMT 359, the Outlaw team – Alex and brother Andy Gobel, Nic Gillan, Ken and Keith Kroshell – chopped the truck 5 inches and extended the frame to 300 inches. They shaved and suicided the doors, fabricated an air-ride suspension, gutted and recreated the interior in burnt orange leather with champagne ostrich upholstery and copper and chrome accents and accessories.

Named for its owner’s trucking company, Kevin McIntyre Trucking, KMT 359 features a 400-horsepower 3406B Caterpillar engine with copper-plated valve covers, aluminum brackets and mounts, and a multitude of other under-the-hood embellishments. Outlaw also gave the truck a rolled front bumper, custom windshield and dished-end fuel tanks.

The Big Rig Build-Off is sponsored by PPG’s commercial coatings group and matches prominent custom truck builders in both open and invitational contests to create the ultimate big rig working truck. KMT 359 won its title in an invitational competition.

Outlaw Customs was founded by Alex and Andy Gobel and Nic Gillan. The company specializes in specialty parts, accessories, transmissions, drive shafts and differentials for trucks.
