Six on the floor and the other one out the _______ door...

I trust that this is old CB slang?  I remember a lot of it, but the meaning of this one is not in the memory banks!

You are very astute.  Yes it is.  Used to say it, “Hot Damn, hot damn.  It’s payday, hammer down.  Tight shoe money night, going home to play with the babies mama.  I got 13 on the floor and the other one out the ______ damn door, hammer down, hammer down.”

Truck driving is not the glorious lifestyle that everyone imagines, and it often gets boring to say the least.

I have an Allison world transmission in my bus and it has “six” forward speeds and that is all that I drive anymore, so I just re-arranged it to suit my mood at the time.

Thanks for your reply,

BCO

Nooooooooooooo problem.  I had a gal ask me one night, "Hey good buddy, can you tell me what it looks like over your shoulder?" and I came back to her and said:  "Well, if you get me real excited I can get it up to my belt buckle, but I have NEVER had it over my shoulder."

Maybe we ought to stop right there (Ruthi reads this y'know).

I got my AMEX invoice from FMCA for my 6ea 315 80R 22.5 Michelin XZA2 energy tires.  20 ply.  With federal, state and local taxes the bill is $4200.00.

I am mounting them myself since I have a diesel repair shop.

Many of you probably don't need to run 315/80R-22.5 or 12R-22.5 tires.  Weigh your bus fully stuffed loaded. Many could just change to 11R-22.5's-which are a whole lot easier to find on the road and are cheaper.  I changed mine to 11R-24.5's, but I had 8 aluminum rims from my previous truck laying around.  the 11R-24.5 16ply are withing a few pound rating of the 12R-22.5's. 

Tires will always be a big discussion topic.  My first set of tires went 12 years before I noticed side wall cracking without any problems.  Now have Michelin XZE's and intend to run them also 12 years.  Good Luck, TomC

Prevost owners do not have a choice 18,000 lb front ends and the weight is there it can be scary even with the 315 80r tires
