    How strict is Oakley on older equipment? Are they still letting people run gliders/pre-ELD stuff?

    Anything over 5-6 years old they may want to see maintenance records of, but usually they just want to see good detailed pictures of the outside and how well it is kept up. Whatever is brought must be able to run an ELD. No exceptions.

    Any info on end dump getting home from someone living in Michigan? Was told every other weekend most likely but they’re also slowing down on hiring and being super picky right now

    How is home time around western ky area? Been looking at dump and hopper. Alot of hopper due to not wanting to go to PA VA WV or pretty much NC up toward Maine I don't like.

    I don’t know when hiring will start back up, but as far as end dump home time in MI really depends on which part. UP would be a little harder to get to every other weekend but the lower part would be pretty easy to get home every other weekend when things are normal.

    Western KY with an end dump could be in every weekend. A hopper too probably but it might be a little more sporadic and might miss some weekends here and there. Hoppers don’t go much further northeast than central PA, but there are some rogue loads to upstate NY from time to time. Good bit of end dump up there though.

    As above, I don’t know when hiring is supposed to restart.

    No restrictions on pets. It’s your truck. But some customers will not allow pets or riders on their property. Those are kind of few and far between though.

    Riders I think have to be over a certain age (12 I think?) and related to you by some extent. I think. Rider insurance is like $11 and I can’t remember the specifics as I’ve never needed it.
     
    FinkPloyd Thanks this.

    End dump still working steady through this crazy time? Or has it slowed like everything else?
