    Most of the daycabs have eye bolts through the floor to tie down a box. Make sure yours fits!

    I run a CB, and I hate the idea of running without one as far away as I go.

    One thing I havn't seen anybody mention is Bluetooth Speakers. It's small, lightweight, portable and convenient. It works off your phone or MP3 player via Bluetooth and it has auxiliary inputs as well. Our docks are filled with Bluetooth Speakers everywhere and it's AMAZING how loud and deep the bass is.

    Practically all of our Tractors don't have any radios in them (no A/C either...OUCH!!!). A lot of our drivers just carry around Bluetooth Speakers, since there are no assigned Tractors. All slipseat. Some of them use to carry around Boom Boxes or homemade portable Speakers with Radio/CD head units built into them. But ever since Bluetooth Speakers came out, everybody started using them instead because of the small size and convenience of them. Just pop them out of your bag and pop it back in when done.

    There are a whole list of Bluetooth Speakers that you can choose from. Just do a google search, and depending on budget and what type of music you like, the sound quality is SURPRISINGLY good. You can even add more speakers to create a stereo or surround sound effects to them.

    JBL Bluetooth Speakers are used a lot on our docks. The sound quality is excellant and DEEP BASS...

    Fugoo Style Bluetooth Speakers are rated among the best on some top five lists...

    Yep. Bluetooth speakers are the way to go. Got mine from Costco, 80.00, waterproof, windshield mount and 12v plug in. Great sound. Had an old pelican case lying around, fit in there stays in my locker.
