Build Breakdown: Wings of Awesomeness

A few months ago we asked you to submit your favourite paint schemes, old and new, and we would have you vote for which design we would put on a brand new star. You blew us away with your submissions, so we narrowed it down to four and asked you once again to vote for your favourite. It came down to the wire but, in the end this is the truck you guys wanted to see built.

So we did it! We built the 2019 Western Star 4900EX Wings of Awesomeness.

We then posted it for sale on our website and of course the attention it received was very overwhelming. But, it did sell and of course the owner wanted to make it his own by including extras like a Bilodeau Blind Mount 20” Bumper, 7” top stacks, 8 red LED bunk lights, stainless steel 1/2 fenders and more. Take a look at the after photos and full spec list below!
