Peterbilt Spotters Guide

The 386 and 384 replaced the model 385 which replaced the model 377.   386 debuted in 2005.

The 386 has a 126" BBC and the 384 has a 116" BBC.  The 384 looks like 386 but the grille/crown stands straighter where 386's crown leans back.  384 also has a larger secondary fender piece between the hood and the lower fender.

384 - note the large intermediate fender section and the upright crown.

Now this photo perplexes me - it is a 384 but the intermediate fender section is more like a 386.

The green and yellow unit is a 384.  Again the intermediate fender section is large.
