    I see all these people getting all bent outta shape about new drivers and "steering wheel holders"? What is that? What distinguishes a "real" driver from just another holder?

    I think the definition varies based on who you're talking to.

    These days a "steering wheel holder" is someone who joined the industry 15 minutes after you did..

    I would assume it's a van vs flatbed thing.
    Most van guys pretty much do just that....hold the steering wheel...while the open deck guys actually climb out of the truck to work
     
    Dakota Dave and Mudguppy Thank this.

    You may be a wheel holder if:

    You don't know what's under the hood

    You can't tell the difference between nutella and Rotella

    You just graduated swift school but you have a Peterbilt belt buckle and a CAT hat

    I have a Volvo D13 435hp engine with the XE software, Volvo I shift transmission with .78 top gear ratio and a 2.64 rear end.

    I want a cookie!

    All about the mentality, you have a lot more under your belt than I do but I've run into a few younger guys that were far from the cookie cutter mega
