Its not truly a Todd post until he goes off on a rant about modern trucks being too nice compared to the "glory days".

LoLoL.. pretty sure i rebuffed him there, haha~!! rofl-3.gif

Moe, that's an '89 359 daycab (and watch, G Town will correct me, because I 'could' be wrong, haha!) That's the ole' gal we pulled asphalt in back in the day. She still resides at our home, just not bearing the sash with numbers these days.

Purty tho.. eh? Yep, that's in our driveway!!

(because the bean-counters at Big Orange won't invest money to install something like OnStar), I get all this security freak stuff in my noggin from having been in the military.

Truthfully, I have never heard of any company putting OnStar in their trucks. Does Ford put it in their cars and pickups? I checked in 2014 and they didn't back then.

Moose, having spent 14 yrs on active duty in the Air Force, in various career fields, including Security, I don't let it freak me out. Just use common sense, which you really don't seem to have much of for being in the military. Being an older female, I do not worry while out on the road. I have my Wasp spray that shoots 25 ft and my dog that bites (while in the truck).

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.

Many people have battery tools on their trucks. The worst to ever happen to me a few times is lot lizards knocking on my door. That is followed by a call to the the truck stop I'm at. I stay away from trouble.

Amazing that truckers out here doing the job every day get called steering wheel holders by someone who doesn't have the guts to come out.

Even worse? He is terrified to try without a firearm. Just amazing.

And to clarify.... My modern day Lexus type of truck has a panic button on the dash that activates an outside alarm and also notifies prime and the police. Again... Rope thru the air horn pull and problem solved.

So... Cry baby girls like me have bigger balls than trolls.

Well, Kearsney, driving a rig through Tornado Alley during tornado season is probably more hairy than the notion that a bad hombre might bust into your rig and night and murder you or rape you while you sleep. As a soldier, I was put out in the field all alone at night to guard the perimeter out on maneuvers. I had my M16 but no bullets to shoot anything. Typical military "intelligence". It was dark and spooky in the woods on summer night. I could hear coyotes howling nearby. I thought I saw Bigfoot even!! It turned out to just be tall dark tree trunk moving in the breeze.
