    Would that really help though is the question. They don't usually know what you've got in your pants until they've already decided they like you well enough to find out.

    Really? I think lo-pro 24.5 looks the best. Probably the most expensive rubber though.

    A trucker buddy of mine lent me his 6 inch extension to try in the trucks I drive.

    I tried it for a week in the ford. My shoulder hated it.

    The shifter is too far back for my arm to handle.

    If I tried it in the 359 Pete we have, it would likely be more comfortable in that truck as the shifter is further forward from the driver.

    I asked some of my trucker friends with tall shifter why they have it.

    More Comfortable they said. Looks cool too.

    Doubtful. Most times I see such nonsense it's usually pulling a container from Newark NJ, coming across 78 in PA. And we don't have Moose around here. Not in the wild anyway. They're confined to Walmarts.

    Usually they're a rolling roadblock on 78.

    There's one in particular I see often. He's got the obnoxious LED headlights, fog lights, driving lights, a light bar. And then above the sun visor he has four or five KC lights. And yes, I've seen him/her running with all of them lit, driving down the highway on a clear night

    Just stupid.
    I have macular degeneration and have to get injections in my eyes every month to treat it and I don't need that many lights on.
