    Those outfits are around, and they normally do not advertise that they do that. More of an in house thing for current drivers that want to take the plunge into ownership. I would suggest you give this little tome a look, it is packed full of information in regards to what you are looking to do. Take an hour or two to read and think about what you are thinking of getting yourself into.

    Myself, I would still look for a well cared pre emission truck, old N-14 or Detroit Series 60, preferably with a fresh in frame. If you look at the 2000 to say 2005 models, they are out there, and will not be fetching a premium like the 2000 and older trucks are fetching right now due to the ELD. Many places will finance, just be careful of what they are offering in regards to interest and payments. Don't be a victim.

    if you knew what you were getting into then you wouldn't be asking the same questions that 99% of the people asking about fleecing do. But whatever, grab the ball and run with it I could care less.
