    Well gents i finally paid off my truck today and have the title in my hand. They say lease purchase is impossible but we did it. It was by no means easy but it was well worth it, the knowledge and experience ive gained about the business and how to be successful , i wouldnt trade it for a million bucks. Now ive made it to the ranks of an owner operator at 26 years old. Im quite proud of myself.

    My next goal is to buy my own trailer. Im looking for a 48ft x102in - spread axle step deck, if anybody has some leads out there.

    Unfortunatly the truck is still in the shop after wrecking it but they just started tearing it down today. Now if I can just keep my truck from rolling off the side of the mountain i might be able to make some money out here .:biggrin_25523:

    Thank all of you guys for answering all of my dumb questions when i first started this gig. Its incredible the wealth of information that is on this site. Couldnt of done it without you.

    Not too many people can say they payed off a rolled truck. You are in a league of your own. You have all the bragging rights. :biggrin_2559::biggrin_2559::biggrin_2559:

    I keep telling you. Throw a reefer behind it. You won't rollover then. Or be getting someone else's rocks off. LOL

    When you get your truck back keep a real good eye on how it tracks and watch for abnormal and uneven tire wear. We've had a couple that were rebuilt after turning over and they were never quite right again.
    I'm sure that a good shop can get things close to where they should be alignment wise but from personal experience they never get back to factory specs.
