Trucking is one career that’s handed down from generation to generation in many families. The Mathis family is a prime example, as Timothy Mathis has followed his father, several uncles, and cousins who have chosen trucking as their career. Tim has been trucking for over 23 years, running his own trucking company for the past 6 1/2 years. He hauls a variety of dump truck loads with his stunning 2007 Peterbilt 379 and 2013 East dump trailer. Tim says his polished Peterbilt has a 550 CAT engine that’s paired with an 18-speed transmission to pull those hills. Tim has installed a number of custom features both inside and out on his truck. A Generation 3 steer axle air ride by 12 Gauge Customs gives the truck just the right stance! Tim has also added a custom 20” bumper, a drop visor, custom rear T-bar, and a set of 8” straight pipes - complete with Pickett elbows. There’s also low rider 1/4 fenders, extra roof lights on the cab, and a custom fuel tank filler.
The truck’s interior looks every bit as nice as the outside thanks to hardwood flooring that makes you think you’re standing in your living room, along with Legacy low-profile seats, and custom chrome threshold plates and chrome seat adapters by Rockwood. Don’t be fooled by all of the custom features, this Peterbilt is no “garage queen”, as Tim keeps those wheels turning every week. The sound system is definitely over the top with the addition of a Pioneer flip out head unit, Kicker 12” subwoofers, and a number of Kicker amps that make you feel like you’re at a live rock concert instead of out on the interstate! Tim’s 2013 East dump trailer has a number of extra lights all around and is polished to a mirror finish. The Mathis family has logged many miles and Tim Mathis is following in the footsteps of past generations. One thing’s for certain, he’s making them proud with every mile, delivering his loads in style with his stunning combo! He wanted to thank his family for all of their love & support along the way. Movin’ Out salutes Timothy Mathis for all of his hard work by selecting him as our August 2018 Working Show Truck of the Month.
