    You and @ThomasTrucker21 both need to keep posting. A lot of the people on here just read and never post anything but your posts actually get quite a bit of traffic.
    Plus the fact that neither one of you add any aggravation to my day...and that's appreciated.

    @Trashtrucker1707 i ran into some of that traffic you were talking about in between wildwood and Ocala today. It wasn’t terrible but I know It could be at the wrong time of the day

    It’s unreal that it’s happening nearly everyday there, and it only gets worse the closer to the weekend you get. I loaded down in punta gorda this morning and was hectic the whole way up.

    Well I got offered one of the ‘22 Internationals today. Would be my first automatic truck since I started driving lol. But I think I may take It

    My 2 cents, after a little over 18 years of driving. If you have a truck right now that you enjoy driving, have faith in its reliability, and is something you're overall happy with you might want to hang on to it for a bit. I passed up a new Mack anthem for a year until I was basically asked "nicely" to drive it, took delivery of it with no more than 90 miles on it, and albeit a nice truck, roomy, runs good, I'm simply not impressed with it and would love to have my old Mack back. Simply my opinion for what it's worth.
     
    ThomasTrucker21 and Speed_Drums Thank this.

    I appreciate that input. I do like the truck I’m in now but It has been giving some fits as of late but it hasn’t left me on the side of the road…yet. I do think I am I gonna try out the new truck just to see how It goes. It has a forward facing camera, lane departure and all that other stuff so It will be something I have to get used to I’m excited to drive It though.
     
    Speed_Drums Thanks this.

    I have forward facing, inward facing, all the other buzzers and bells, unlike popular opinion in these forums they don’t really bother me. The company I work for treats me well as an employee, and all that stuff just holds me accountable while doing my job. I will say it takes a lot of getting used to though, but I can honestly say it has made me a safer, better driver.
     
    ThomasTrucker21 Thanks this.

    well I got all my stuff moved over yesterday morning and drove home for the weekend and honestly the lane departure and other things didn’t bother me that much. I do feel like It will make me a better driver in the long wrong to be honest. Also the truck rides very nice has plenty of storage came with a fridge and outlets for plugs so overall I’m pretty pleased with It so far
