    Here is what I drive for the time being, untill I get my next truck. This one is a rare animal - 2012 389 glider with 2001 Detroit Series 60 500HP and 18speed, has 8' loud pipes :). The owner imported it from US 8 moths ago when they're where still allowed to be regestreted. Awsome truck, and simply amazing fuel economy with this motor around 6-6.5 US MPG, even when grossing around 105K lb.

    Yup, whatever Sarabeara said, also called the "positive air shutdown valve" that prevents engine from overspeeding and blowing itself to pieces, if it's sucked H2S or CO instead of oxygen. The butterfly like valve on the intake manifold will block the tube, thus preventing any air entering the engine and leading to immediate shutdown. Also your personal gas monitor needs to be on you.

    Does there need to be a first aid kit and any h2s gear in the truck other then the monitor... I'm going to be working for an independent who's new to the oil and doesn't have anything in the truck... And my safety is #1

    Having a first aid kit in any semi is important. I can't get a safety without one.
    Carry chains in the winter, unless your working Devon.
