You see some strange things while driving a truck both from trucks and 4 wheelers. I get to haul ag equipment for the Deere dealer I work for. I love my time in the truck but you got to have the right mindset to be 16 -17 ft wide 16 ft tall and weigh 100k gross. Everybody things your in the way and don't have a right to be on the road. I catch more crap from OTR drivers when I'm hauling equipment. Either I leave the CB off or don't pay attention to it because they get mad at you for being there. They will hug the center line on the interstate and then its your fault they didn't know you were next to them until equipment tires are passing the window all while your half in the ditch to go around them and they want to drive 60 in a 75mph speed limit.

94 F-250 reg cab 4x4 5spd 7.3 stroke. 3inch downpipe, 4 in exhaust. super duty turbo with 1.0 non wastegated exhaust housing ww2 and 360 thrust kit. Intercooler, MB diesel hpop, driven diesel complete efuel, 6637 air filter, kingpin dana 60.

You will NEVER get my *** back in a day cab, nothing worse then commuting back and forth and dealing with the office and swapping trailers around every day. I'm also making an extra $3-400 a week at the same company I drove day cab for. Get up Monday and go to work, get home Friday and crack open a cold beer by 3:30
