    Just wondering what these jobs are paying. I did this in 2010 and had GL pulling JB hunt trailers.

    well, i called and they're paying $2.17 loaded and a buck empty. Not bad. I think they paid like $1.47/mile in 2010 and fuel was like $3.50 /gal.

    I'm in the process of doing this. I just purchased a 2000 Peterbilt 379, N14+, 18 speed and now am waiting to get the best insurance quotes. After that, it's getting the tag, title, and permits...then get another account with DAT. That's what I used back in 2007-2009 when I ran under my own authority. I only needed it for a month because I found a local account and ran for them exclusively. $3600 for 500 miles per week! I'm hoping to get lucky again.

    I still get emails from JB about loads and my authority has been inactive for 10 years! Lol

    I just went back and looked and it was actually 397 miles...but it was also 13 years ago with no stops...just drop and hook.

    I am looking to do some power only myself. What year rig are you running with? I am currently running for $1.70 a mile on a 2200 mile trip. I can do it twice a week.

    Out of curiosity, whats the appeal of power only versus getting your own trailer?
