The new Truck 1 is now in its 4th week of construction at Pierce Manufacturing in Appleton (WI). The truck is coming along nicely and is on schedule. We anticipate the truck should be complete in early April.

Additional photo updates will be posted at the end of each week during the ongoing construction process.
