    I agree, as an owner operator with over 30 years experience, it's usually never in the best interest of the driver. Lease purchase almost always benefits the company. And as far as the choice of trucks, if I remember correctly lone stars are really heavy. Don't know what you plan on hauling, but it can limit your load options.

    Pretty sure all three are a great choice.

    You'll be profitable in a lease purchase and can inform us all in about 9 months which great choice you've made in trucks and your success in the industry!

    Please be careful and don't nudge my old girl off the road as you pass at speed, gallantly delivering those important goods to the needy consumer!

    God speed Sir!

    Sally forth!
