    Anyone doing it or thinking about the new lease they have come up with.
    From what I can gather, truck payment is a set price monthly ($2500-$2800) depending on truckt and includes routine maintenance/tires etc.
    Paid plates,prepass, and qualcom.
    Haven't been able to nail down insurance prices yet.

    Havent heard much about it, but that sounds about right. My own truck is about $2000 a month between the payment and maintenance, but its a much more simple truck with slightly higher miles.

    The competition is well above $3000. Many companies are $900 PER WEEK. So I would say this is a fair deal.

    But I would avoid the freightliners unless you are going to team or train, because I have one and the idle systems are awful. The Petes and KW that Werner has are pretty awesome, so I would definitely recommend going with one of those instead of an FL.

    I've been curious about this one myself, just as Dave said other company leases run 900 a week. I've been toying around with the idea of doing a lease to get a better understanding of the owner operator world in other words use it as a stepping stone. I feel like it would be easier financially to fail at a lease versus Failing when you have semi truck financed.
