Kenny Mackrell - Mackrell Diversified

March 2021

Kenny Mackrell, like many young boys, grew up around the trucks and the trucking industry since his father, Ken, was a trucker and instilled a passion for trucks into him. Kenny says his father taught him how to drive, take care of, and work on trucks which led Kenny to want to own his own truck and run his own business. Kenny has been driving trucks for over 22 years, and with a lot of prayer, love, and support from his family & friends, he saw his dream come true in May of 2019 when he purchased his first truck & trailer and started his own business, Mackrell Diversified. Kenny credits his wife, Jamie and their children, Conner & Kayla, for all of their love & support along the way.

Kenny's pride & joy is this bright blue 2019 Peterbilt 389 that's powered by a 605 Cummins engine paired up with a 13 speed and a set of 3:55 rears. The 300" wheelbase is full of custom features including an RLK visor, a tapered Southern Stamping bumper that goes from 20" to 18", and Talladega filler panels & custom light bar. Kenny hauls grain products such as corn, beans, and wheat to feed mills in his 2018 MAC frameless dump trailer that has plenty of chicken lights down the sides. Wagner Tarps out of Brookeville, PA installed the Arrow  tarp system on the trailer. Kenny also hauls coal, scrap, and aggregates on occasion. He wanted to thank J&S Etling Chrome Shop in Connellsville, PA for the custom stainless on the truck. He has extra roof lights on the cab, polished stainless full fenders, and United Pacific lighting all around.  The interior looks as nice as the exterior with a number of custom touches including a custom headliner.

Kenny takes a great deal of pride in his profession as well as his truck, representing the trucking industry with class & old school values. When he's not out trucking, he likes to spend time with family & friends, watching his children's sports. and occasionally doing some archery hunting in the woods. Dreams do come true with enough hard work & determination, and Kenny Mackrell is living proof every time he hits the highway in his pressed out Peterbilt!
