    cdl laws have recently changed.
    now to tow any thing in excess of 10k lbs you must have a cdl. get caught with out and theres some serious trouble to be had.

    so yes i have my cdls.

    and thanks for the comments.

    ive got a few other pics if you want for your screen.

    YEA!! please load them up!!!

    are CDL laws a federal thing or state thing? either way, what level(s) of CDL's do you have and how hard and how expensive is each level to obtain?

    And also, when you say to tow anything over 10k, is that including the trailer weight as well? Because that would mean you'd need a CDL to tow a bobcat behind a 3500SRW pickup!

    I know that you have to be 21 and over. I am going to get mine as well. I heard there is a license everything now. My uncle was telling me that years back he got his by saying he was a mechanic that worked on his fathers rigs. ( he would have to drive the rig back if broken down, things like that) He got his cdl with no driving test just a written.

    Looks pretty good. The only advice i have, go on ebay and type in Dodge towing mirrors...BUY A SET:dizzy: . Get rid of them cheapo little strap on things. Im tellin you right now those dodge fold out towing mirrors are awesome, you will be able to look and see whats behind the tractor trailer drivin behind you. Good luck
