truckin in the states

Hey guys, just curious as I have been thinking about it for a while now, been wanting to come over your way and travel around the states for a bit and sort of figured why not run trucks while I'm over tthat way, see the country and get some $$$,to keep me goin haha, basically want to know how hard it would be to pick up some driving work over there

I have plenty of experience driving everything from single trailers to road trains, all with 18sp road rangers, was on the forum and thought I may as well ask haha

2003 F250 7.3l (RHD), auto, 4"lift, 315/75R16's, arb steel winch bar, 12,000lb winch, 30" LEDlightbar and 2x lightforce 240 spotlights, Snorkel, edge cts attitude tuner, 5"stright through exhaust, Custom made rock sliders, Front and Rear ARB air lockers, still more on the list to be done
