Somewhere Janesville, Wis., resident Jason Arneson spec'd his 2005 Kenworth W900L with a 500-hp Caterpillar and 13-speed transmission for a driver who worked for his Jerry Arneson Trucking for 21 years. Before driving the truck, however, the driver died and Travis Olson took over driving duties. In honor of him, the company kept the truck's moniker, It's 5 O'clock Somewhere – a name given by the truck's original driver. The KW, which has three detailed murals, hauls grain, feed ingredients and food-grade products. Rooster Cruiser Owner-operator Blake Wurmnest of Heyworth, Ill., dedicated his 2004 Peterbilt 379 to his dad.

Wurmnest, who has his own authority and hauls farm feed products, named the truck Rooster Cruiser.
