Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On December 9, 2008, the Board of Directors of PACCAR Inc (the “Company”) named Thomas E. Plimpton to the Company’s Board of Directors effective January 2, 2009, and John M. Pigott to the Company’s Board of Directors effective April 27, 2009.

Mr. Plimpton will serve as a Class I director for the remainder of the term of Michael A. Tembreull who is retiring from the Company and resigning from the Board effective January 2, 2009. Mr. John M. Pigott will serve as a Class III director. Neither director is expected to be named to a Board committee at this time. Mr. John M. Pigott is the brother of Mark C. Pigott, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. There are no reportable transactions under Item 404 (a) of Regulation S-K.

Mr. Plimpton, Vice Chairman of the Company, will receive no compensation as a director. Mr. John M. Pigott will receive compensation for his services in accordance with the Company’s standard compensatory arrangements for non-employee directors. These arrangements include a prorated annual retainer of $75,000, Board meeting fees of $7,500 per meeting, and an annual restricted stock award of $90,000 prorated for 2009 to $67,500.

On November 4, 2008, the Company reported in a Current Report on Form 8-K the naming of Kirk S. Hachigian and Warren R. Staley to the Company’s Board of Directors, effective December 9, 2008.
