    I am a newb to truck driving. I have 1.6 yrs experience. I am now driving a 2015 Kentworth T680. My question is; How far up does the steering column tilt? When ever I go to get in or out of the seat it's difficult. I'm always hitting my hips or knees against the wheel. Also it blocks the top portion of the dash guages. Shouldn't the wheel tilt up far enough so that it is flat and parrellel to the ground. I have attached a picture for reference.

    KW don’t. You want a Volvo, if you want a wheel that tilts up and out of the way.
