    I'm still stuck on the fact that somebody would go out and get a truck so they have 4800 bucks in truck payment every month!!! 1200 a week!!!! WTF! Screw that! I could find a truck for 1200 bucks a MONTH! Sounds like somebody is going to get in over his head before summer even starts and blame it on everybody else!!!WTF are some people thinking!

    I 100% agree with you a $15,000 truck makes the same money as a $150,k truck (unless your doing specialized) I have a lot of over head but it's more like $4,270 a month that's office insurance load boards.....my trucks paid for did I want a new glider durn right I did but in the end I couldn't talk myself into it.
