Mark Havens, a fuel-hauling owner-operator based out of Shelbyville, Indiana, says his Viper Red 2019 Peterbilt 389 extended hood came to him as a gift from above. Coming off of having retired from running fuel for Marathon as a company driver, Havens lucked out by landing the hard-to-find Pete on the very same day he started leasing on at a new company.Now, the rig has earned him the win in the 2021 Overdrive's Pride & Polish Working Bobtail, 2009 & Newer category.
"I had been looking for a flattop back in 2018, but there was none anywhere in the country," said Havens. "You just couldn’t find a flattop Pete. I just happened to call after my orientation for my new job in Kentucky to the sellers in Indiana to see if they had one."
After the dealer initially expressed doubt, he checked and discovered one had been delivered overnight, just the night before. "I said, 'please be Viper Red.' I prayed for that truck," said Havens, who does business under the name Proverbs 3 Trucking LLC, where he switches between trucking under his own authority and working for different fuel haulers like Petroleum Traders and Luke Oil.
Havens was in luck that day, it's sure. The rig is powered by a Cummins ISX 15.
"I want to give glory to God, the lord that gave that," Havens said of the unit. "I bought it sight unseen. I had it dressed up -- all the chicken lights, 8 inch Dynaflex straight pipes to the custom rear fenders. It has a Cummins ISX 15."
The rig features an 18 speed transmission with a 270-inch wheelbase and a Blackmer pump. Havens owns a 2014 LBT tanker with air ride and disc brakes. Havens mostly hauls gasoline and ethanol, he said.
He cut his teeth in trucking starting in 1988, when he fulfilled his lifelong dream of hauling cattle for National."They were an elite fleet. All outlaw truckers, always on the left lane," said Havens. "They brought me in right. Now I’m leased on to Breckenridge Trucking, and it's like hauling cattle. It’s cool but let me tell you it’s one of the hardest if not the hardest."
As for his biggest challenges, Havens said something that most likely rings true with most any driver at some point: "Finding a company where you're more than just a number." While he added he makes more money when operating under his own authority, the overhead and administrative headaches often represent more trouble than they're worth, he said.
Nonetheless, after a few decades on the road, Havens has himself situated pretty comfortably.
"I'm hauling every day about 500 or 600 miles, 12 hours a day... . I sleep in my bed every night. I got horses at home," he said. "I put in my time OTR, and now it doesn't get a whole lot better than what I'm doing."
Regardless of his load, the classic look of the flattop 389 draws a crowd wherever it goes, he said. "It’s just the classic truck with that red and the chrome. My truck is like a Harley-Davidson, it brings young and old, all ages. It's just the heritage."
On that score, Havens may be on to something. In 2020, the winner of the newer-model one of two Working Combo categories also was a 389.
For the success he's seen, in the end, he stressed that all glory for his truck, career and life should go to God.

The Ultimate Photo Collection of Peterbilt 389 Trucks
The Peterbilt 389 is the model that ‘technically’ replaced the 379 model Pete. At first glance, it can be difficult to tell these two models apart.
Many truckers were extremely disappointed when the company discontinued the production of the 379 truck….. it had classic good looks and was a ‘big, big seller’…. a very popular model, especially attractive to the owner operator.
Pete tried very hard to keep the ‘classic look‘ of this popular model of Pete…. after all, why ‘mess with a good thing?’
The 2 models, the 379 and the 389 Pete, are pretty darned similar.
However, upon closer inspection, the cosmetic differences, between the 389 and 379 are easily spotted.
Changes From the Peterbilt 379 to Peterbilt 389 Peterbilt
- Added 4″ of length to the hood, to accommodate the extra emissions equipment that is mandatory
- Mirrors reconfigured, and more aerodynamic, much like the more recent KW models
- Grill is a single piece, with a nice look, no rivets
- Headlights are brighter with a different look (many truckers do NOT like these ‘alien-looking lights’)
- Turning radius is even better than the Pete 379
Quick, Easy Tips to Tell a 379 from a Peterbilt 389
A closer look at a few features, will help distinguish between the 2 models.
- Grill — overall, a cleaner, smoother lookH
- Headlights — space aged look to the headlights
- Corners –more rounded
- Bumper — more rounded corners than the 379
Peterbilt was smart NOT to make too many serious changes to the look of the 389, as it was intended to replace the 379 model of Peterbilt, which was a very popular model and a hot seller.
Have Truckers Been Receptive to the 389?
- Even with the improvements to the Peterbilt 389, due to the increased cost due to rising prices and emissions equipment, the sales haven’t been as good as predicted.
- The profit margin is so tight that many owner operators who owned a long nose truck, are switching over to smaller, drop-nosed models that are more fuel efficient.
- Nowadays, even a mile per gallon savings makes a heck of a difference to an o/o’s bottom line.
- Although this is essentially an ‘owner-operator’ rig, as opposed to a company fleet truck, there’s a lot fewer o/o’s around, thus the lower sales. At one time, o/o’s made of 50% of the purchasing market. Now, they make up less than 10% of the sales.
- Many truckers associate the engine troubles and emission equipment failure to the ‘make of the truck’, not the engine. When they see a lot of these models being carried in on tow hooks, they automatically associate the problem with the Petes, which isn’t really the case. …. it’s the new ‘efficient engine and emissions’ features that are breaking down!
