Have you ever wondered what it’s like to drive one of SmithCo’s high-quality, durable side dump trailers? Thanks to American Truck Simulator, now you can—well, sort of.

Released in 2016, the popular truck driving simulator features actual truck models delivering trailer-moved goods for objectives resulting in money earned and experience points gained. In addition to driving truck, the game allows the user to manage the trucking business through hiring drivers and owning properties.

A Reddit user created a “mod”—an alteration to a game made by players or fans—that inserted a SmithCo side dump trailer into the game for everyone to enjoy. You can get that mod here.

If you’re video game savvy, enjoy exploring the digital highways hauling with our industry leading trailers. If video games aren’t your thing, check out the videos below to get an idea of what it’s like.
