    You would think an oo would take good care of their equipment, but unfortunately that isn't always the case. Lots of oo's pulling buck twenty a mile freight right now, and on that kind of rate, just how good can they be taking care of their equipment?

    Moral of the story, no matter who owned the truck before, do a very thorough inspection on it.

    Very true.
    Also amazing how some guys can treat equipment maintenance aside, company or OO.
    You know who I'm talking about, the guys with 30 McDonald's bags littered all over the floorboards. Disgusting.
