yeah... polishing the tanks, wheels, and eveything else shiny on it will run me about $1k-1,500 at my local truck wash. Spendy sucker but I MIGHT do that when summer hits

So, no acid after it's polished..? That makes sense as acid will take the shine away huh.!

I think when the time comes, I will just end up replaceing the upper stacks with these and replacing the mufflers with hi-flos

Seriously Eli I traded it in on the new 2013 Pete winch truck sitting in my driveway. I don't need a sleeper cab on a winch truck. Only work daylight hours and get hotels if we are staying out. Plus it would be pretty hard to winch a section of a drilling rig or a frac tank up onto the truck with a sleeper on the back as you have to be able to see your winch line and trailer/tank/rig section being pulled up onto the truck and vice versa when dropping it.

From one commercial driver to another congrats Eli. I don't know if you took your CDL test yet or not but the most important part of the test is the pretrip. If you ace that then you can afford mistakes on the driving part.

Thanks man!
Yeah I haven taken the driving test yet, just passed the knowledge to get my permit.
I'm learning the pre trip inspection and all that fun stuff right now.. Trying for it to come by nature so I wouldn't have any issues! The driving, I'm getting used to it.

If you have any questions just ask. The most important thing that an old driver told me before my test was to point or touch everything and point out that it was not broke and looked normal. Also never forget the air brake check before you start that rig up for the driving part. Thats an automatic fail if you don't do it and so many forget it.

New Rig:)

That is the test where you depress the brake and it can't leak more then 4psi a minute for a combo rig.
Then your supposed to fan the brake till the buzzer goes off at around 60psi.
Then keep fanning till air gets down to 20-45 psi and the brake valves pop out.
And lastly start the rig and check the trailer brakes by pulling against them and then checking the service brakes.



Did I miss anything?

Nope sounds good. Low air alarm usually comes on around 60psi in most rigs though. Wish you all the luck bro. Let us know how it turns out.
