    height and weight doesn’t matter as long the flip flops fit properly.

    Ok that actually made me laugh out loud. I'm at a truck stop diner in Wyoming, and I'm sure the other drivers are wondering what I read.

    no requirements.

    I've seen lots of petite ladies driving solo and doing better than some guys. lol

    my last company had a girl about your size and she'd been driving for over 25 yrs. LTL. OTR and dump truck.

    Basically as long as you can physically do the job and reach the peddals your good to go. Ive seen recently retired military in perfect shape. Guys in the 600+ club guys at 4 foot tall and guys 7 foot tall mean, women, trans and what i am fairly sure was a gorilla with glasses and a hat poseing as human and everything in between.

    + being shorter makes the cab feel that much bigger haha. Couldn't imagine being 6'5 and cramped into a cab

    I identify as a human so I demand to be treated as one. And at least at the truck stops I feel I fit in.
