You officially drive the coolest truck on the forum haha

That's a 10-4. Probably the coolest sounding too. Those road signs we all see that pop-up with no warning; "engine brakes prohibited within city limits". It applies to you!

Yeah guys it’s beautiful and a beast for sure. I personally never would have choosen it for several reasons, but as others I drive what the boss says too. I feel like I’m starting over as a driver it is so different. It is a bit loud and yes G I’ll no longer be able to hide the fact the jake is active, lol.

I’m heading to Houston sunday so I’ll get some miles with it. I’ve been too those customers many times and they have a bit more room than some, so I am very thankful for that. I’ll take it slow and easy and learn. I’m still trying to figure out where to put stuff. Guess I’ll be down sizing some stuff lol.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Agree w/all of the above; I’m filled with ‘truck envy.’ Beautiful ride!
