    Has anyone hauled sand for Flex Frac out of Ft Worth. Can you make any money at it. What specs would you recommend for a truck?
    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, I have for 8mos now. As in all tkng, there are slow times , but w/ this co. theose are few and far between. I currently drive for an owner /op who has his own tlrs and authority. I've sold my tk in 2006. wished I hadn't. I need to find someone to finance me on a tk and tlr, I'd pay it off quickly, as I have no kids or wivesto worry about ,so, I can stay out and never go home which flex loves that about me and KEEPS ME HOOKED UP!!!
    Good luck.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm flying down this weekend to talk with them about getting on as an O/O. I have an excellent driving record and excellent credit so if they'll sign a contract with me I'll seal the deal on a 2006 T600. It is good to know there is lots of work. Hope to meet you sometime.

    I have been with them since they started. I drive a company truck. They told me that after the first of the year most of our work is going down to south and east and west Texas. But we will still have some work around north Texas. They have plenty of work. I'm getting out of the truck and taking a different job in the company. They are telling me about alot of stuff going on. Sounds like alot of work for everyone. It slows down a little around Thanksgiving and Christmas but the rest it stay pretty busy. We have truck from all over the United States. Hope this helps you out.

    I've been told, they have been shut down and authority revoked by FMCSA. Supposedly CSA flagged the company for too many violations. Anyone knows of any truth to this ?
