That is really a great video! I never took my big trucks to that level, but your's has been so well refined that I watch it and I say to myself... "Who Wouldn't drive that to work every day" ... One thing I might question is why you are driving on the wrong side of the road? That looks sooooo dangerous!

Beautiful drive. Great looking country. Your driving on the wrong side of the road! Waka Waka - fuzzy bear reference. Very Nice truck!
