    Is it possible to have a fridge in the truck? The trucks are equipped with 1500watter inverters. I was also wondering if there's lots of micro-management.

    As for the governed speed, Insect rights groups are suing Prime for Insect Cruelity. When bugs hit the windsheild at that speed, they dont die right away, but rather suffer awhile before dying from injuries

    Mostly likely they hold drivers hands as most Training Wheels companies do

    They’re limited to about 65-67mph as best as I can tell. I used to always see the drivers white knuckling the steering wheel when I blew by them at 85.
    As far as a fridge goes, I’d imagine that they have one from the factory already installed. I mean it’s kind of standard equipment nowadays.
    Their trucks are all equipped with APU’s so I wouldn’t think that they would actually cut corners by not providing a fridge.

    Is Prime kind of a last resort deal for you? If not there’s much better carriers to drive for if you really want reefers.

    That's hilarious. Anyway, I got spoiled with having no governer on my truck, I like driving 62 to 68, and 70-75 right before a hill. I'm worried about micro-management. The reason they stand out is because they are in Salt Lake and I live in Reno, and I like mega carriers because they have trailers and contracts everywhere.

    Most prime company trucks travel at no more than 62 mph. The governor is dependent on fuel economy, and the only way to get the fuel economy is to drive slow when you can so when you need to you can hammer down. If you have experience, look elsewhere.

    Thanks. 62mph is ridiculous.

    CR England is out of SLC also. Don’t know much about them other than what I see on the road. They’re one of the few mega’s that I come across at night.
    I suppose if they were the last company on earth I may consider them.. Prime, I’d just buy a KIA and deliver pizzas. They truly are the biggest clowns on the highway and it doesn’t seem like corporate cares about reigning in the stupidity.
