Here's How An 18-Wheeler Gets Built

Big rig trucks, 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, whatever you call them, you have to admit there’s little else in life as crucial to our comfortable, out-of-season-fruits-in-winter way of life than trucks. Somehow, these massive mechanical brutes usually just get ignored into the background, but the truth is we’d be…
