    Sad part is somebody will jump all over that. Those rates are an absolute joke.

    Who would pay, for arguments sake, $2400 a month, and run at a buck a mile ?

    my god people don't fall prey to this garbage...

    None of those programs are worth a sheet....Once in a blue moon a driver will survive and walk away with a truck...Good for him/her, but what do you have really ? I fleet spec aero truck with high miles and no warranty or very little warranty left on it. The market is flooded with trucks exactly like that and they aren't worth anything.

    If you or anyone else think you can survive in a lease and make it work have at it......The numbers don't add up from the get go.

    I'm sorry sir we aren't offering a fuel bonus at this time.

    Would you be interested in beer and lot lizards instead ? :confused3:
