I have never seen those reflectors on Peterbilts in USA or any truck in USA for that matter.
Hi D33-PAC ,
A very nice find .
Saw these kind of trucks only in the USA.

I've seen one of these plying on the Vadodara-Dahej road, near Jambusar. Could not take pics any though, was busy drooling

Peterbilt and kenworth have been used by ONGC for very long. I have a whole thread dedicated to it.

Saw this LHD Peterbilt truck today on the Surat-Bombay NH8. While overtaking the truck, I noticed the massive front tires which were different from the usual Volvo/MAN trucks. Then it struck, damn this is the Peterbilt! Went a bit ahead, parked the car by the side and clicked this:

Had an MH registration and was hauling some heavy machinery.

I have seen it standing at a toll plaza many times for many years, and it looks to be the same place in this picture. I think its on route to Jaipur - Ajmer. I spotted it standing on the same toll plaza and everytime I would cross that place I would stop to gaze at it, oh it looked beautiful what a monster. Will try to get pics if I spot it again.
This picture is of Rajasthan as well as that bus that is partially in the picture belongs to RSRTC.
