Stoopid question for you OTR truck guys: I see this guy is wearing ear buds. I worked at a car audio shop back in the 90's and did a few pretty crazy installs in big trucks. Subwoofer enclosures built under the bed in the sleeper with a wall of mids/highs on either side, amps flush mounted in the walls, lots of neon lights, etc.
I love music and am still a bit of an audiophile and have a stereo "system" in every vehicle I own. I always thought if I were a truck driver, I would be jamming music 24/7 in my rig like the guys we used to build stereos for.
Is an over the top stereo even a "thing' anymore, or do guys just jam their ear buds and row gears?

|FlexyTJ||Instead of short throw, a super long throw Looks like a great thing to bash your face into in an accident.|

I don't like them but they have their place , but if you can't do standard you are not a real trucker.

The guys driving trucks now a days would shit themselves if they had to back that shit up with a 48ft. wagon in a northeast tight little dock.

|ADChevy4x4||There was a time when trucks were like old Mack B's with small noisy hot cabs ,200 hp and the driver rowed a compound gearbox.The image was a stocky guy with a cigar and Popeye arms from the lack of power steering.Now they are just steering wheel holders...|

A 13 speed has reverse in the top left, 1/6/7 upper middle and 3/10/11 top right. Bottom row is low bottom left, 2/8/9 middle and 4/12/13 bottom right.
This pic shows what I'm talking about. They number the pattern by shift positions not gears so it's kind of confusing. Numbers in black are low range so the flipper is down and the thumb lever on the side of the shifter is locked in low so gears can't be split. White numbers are direct so the flipper is up and the thumb lever can split gears in high range.
The dudes fashion sense is no biggy to me. I'd rather see him chewing on a tooth pick than sucking off the Marlboro man anyday. Never understood the long shifter thing either especially because I like a short crisp throw with the Jake's on full so its quick into the next gear.
