    I drive a truck to be "HAPPY" at what I do... And that- money- I make will go back into the things that make me" HAPPY" I am sick and tired of hearing that trucking is only about making "MONEY" Money does not make me "HAPPY" and I will not be pulling it behind my KW W900L with my 1000hp Cat when I go ten foot under....

    i drive because i love it,money just comes with it.my 2ws has been turned up,runs great.fuel mileage good enough for me.will it stay together hope so ,but i make enough with what i haul to fix it.like he said life is not about money,its about enjoying yourself.most old time drivers got into trucking for the freedom,now the nanny people want to control everything we do.

    Don't knock it till you tried it. You'll understand after you drive it.

    I dont mean as far as Toys, im talking about for an OTR truck nothing more. a 600hp engine in front of an 18 speed would get you there just fine
    I guess ill never get it *shrugs shoulders*

    Its a king of the hill thing for some. Others its more of finding that perfect combination of HP, torque, and fuel economy for the load and lanes they run while still maintaining the dependability of the engine.
