    I worked at Cypress back in '99-00. Same story back then. Old equipment, and it is not that well maintained. But they must be doing something right. I see where they have bought out Sunbelt.
    If your not in good shape now, you will be in acouple of months because most of their loads are short runs, meaning you will be tarping/untarping a lot, sometimes 3-4 times a day. When I worked there, all they had were heavy lumber tarps and sod covers.
    Best of luck to ya.

    i delivered a load this morn. in ft walton beach then went to spanish fort AL. and picked up another for jacksonville i am now sitting in jacksonville taking my 10 then gonna del. this one and see where we go from there. so far everything seems ok here like i have said trucks are older but they seem to be taken pretty good care of. when i was assigned mine i found a few things wrong with it and they fixed them all right away.
