GOT MY CDL!!!!!!

Well, fellas, I finally did it! I passed my CDL driving test Saturday(6/13) & yesterday I went to DMV & got my license. I also passed my endorsement tests for doubles/triples(T), & also my HAZMAT/tanker(X). I'm officially a gear jammer & I've already got a job lined up & I'll be taking a driving test with this company next week! This is the 1st time in my life I've ever been professionally trained for anything, unlike in my union career as an Operating Engineer & pretty much taking a crash course in every field I've ever been in. I don't care what people say about trucking; this is something I've wanted to do for a while & I'm finally getting to do it. LOOK OUT DOT.....HERE I COME!!!!

"HEAVY" 2001 F-250 XLT 4x4 EC SB:
TW 6pos chip, S&B CAI, Monster 4" exhaust w/ Power Elbow, Big Head WGA, Technicooler, ITP boost fooler, Gen 1 Wicked Wheel, Six-Gun Tuner, Optima Yellow Tops, AutoMeter(Boost, Trans, EGT), CCV mod, MTS TC, MTS valve body, Trans Tech performance rebuild kit, TransGo shift kit, Hornblasters 242 Shocker Train Horns.
