    You need to advise Highflight how to idle his truck.

    When the Icon light comes on above the tach, rev it to 1000 and release, it will idle all night!

    So, adjust it while you are not driving.
    Duh!

    It is dangerous to adjust a steering wheel while in motion.
    Double DUH!!!

    Maybe Peterbilt has stickers to cover the FreightShaker emblems? But this grill is just butt ugly!

    Slightly concerned my hubby will divorce me and marry his volvo. Steers great, doesn't back talk and is a lady. Just kidding but he really does love that truck!

    I am really late on this reply because I didn't even look at this thread again.

    Maybe im taking this wrong but some times you can't get the steering wheel adjusted the way you like when not driving. And not having it at a decent position will drive you nuts for hours on end.

    Some things we do out here I call 'advanced technique' like adjusting the steering wheel while driving or grabbing a drink out of the refrigerator while driving or maybe tying a string to the steering wheel and going back and taking a nap while driving. Level 10 advanced is closing all the curtains while driving and legally logging sleeper berth.
