Movin' Out Facebook Fan of the Month: Wesley Wulff
By Pam Pollock
There’s no “bull’ regarding this month’s Movin’ Out Facebook Fan of the Month!
Wesley Wulff is the proud owner of this beautiful rig! Wesley and his family – wife Charity and kids Taylor, Dylan, Ciara and Amanda live in Gann Valley, South Dakota.
Wesley has been a Professional Truck Driver for 11 years and is the Owner-Operator of Bull It Angus, Inc. He primarily hauls agricultural products and commodities and cattle. He also has a sideline in gavel/dirt hauling with belly dumps. Wesley states, “In the past 3 years we've become basically a locally Midwest running company”
The 2003 Peterbilt 379 EXHD has a 275 wb, 48” bunk, Cat 6NZ, 18spd, and 3:55 gears. The Pete is currently running on a fresh overhaul done by Tony's Diesel out of Sioux Falls. Wes says with a smile, “It’s running a tad higher than factory horsepower... it'll pull.” He recently freshened the truck up over the winter with a fresh frame redo, all new stainless by Truck Armor, new Lincoln Chrome Stacks, and frame bolt covers, hubcaps, light cover, and lug nut covers by Lifetime Lugnuts Covers. Graphics were done by Travis Stout at Cholik Signs in Pierre SD.
Wesley stated, “I've always loved the industry and the Peterbilts especially due to a neighbor of ours. Rex Zastrow Trucking when I was a kid was a fairly large cattle-hauling company. They had probably a dozen 379s or so hauling cattle all over the U.S. when I was growing up. Rex even allowed me to tag along with them once in a while as a kid when they'd run down to Dakota City with fat cattle and after that I was hooked. They still run a few trucks hauling commodity nowadays and turns out we've ended up hauling a lot of grain for them for him and his son's farm. It’s been a great friendship as well as business relationship. I'm lucky enough to have a wife and family that support me and my type of addiction to working on this truck. I stay closer to home nowadays as the kids are getting more involved in activities and the local business allows us to keep 2 trucks as busy as we want to be. Of course we face the same issues as the others in the industry, rates, fuel prices, and maintenance costs continue to increase but that's why we run this ‘03 and the other is a ‘93 Pete EXHD flattop and they seem to get the job done just fine.”
Look for Wesley Wulff and his incredibly sharp looking Pete at Midwest Truck Shows this summer, including the upcoming Wheel Jam in Huron, South Dakota.
