Brent Miller - Snyder's Crop Service

Robert Conrad
December 2022

Brent Miller steers this 2000 Peterbilt for Snyder's Crop Service based in Mt. Joy, PA. The truck definitely has plenty of "717 style" following a complete rebuild that Brent's boss, Ed Snyder, let him do. Brent put on new frame rails, which were blank, so he drilled every hole by hand and replumbed all of the air lines. All new wiring was also set up on the cab, frame, and motor. Brent swapped out the 63" stand up bunk for a 48" flat top, giving the truck a whole new look, and he credits Goods Truck Service for the outstanding paint job on the truck. The rear suspension was also converted to a newer Pete low leaf for a better ride.

Brent works the truck every day, hauling fertilizer out of Baltimore, as well as grain/bagged salt, and equipment in the off season. Power comes from a 6 NZ CAT motor and Brent shifts thru the 18 speeds with ease! Horse & Buggy Truck Accessories supplied all of the custom "goodies" and helped get Brent's ride looking right. He also wanted to give thanks to Kloppy Trucking for all of the advice, Shane Kurtz for the air ride, and everyone who lent a hand in the rebuild. In the end, this 2000 looks like a brand-new truck, and Brent Miller keeps it shining out on the highway and at the various truck shows he attends.

A true working show truck form the "717" that delivers in style for Snyder's Crop Service, and the Movin' Out choice for our December Working Show Truck of the Month.
