    Lone mountain or some other leasing. Honestly thought, it's not a good time to get in this business. Unless you're planning on living in a truck, don't get in it. I rather work for one of these companies in California that pay good and save the money and get out. Believe it or not, I worked for a private company here in California and I got weekly pay. I net about 1500 per week

    I'm sure it's been said but, if can't come up with 1200 bucks you can't afford a truck, or even a car for that matter. Save your money and if you still have the urge to lose it go to Las Vegas and at least have some fun. You can't borrow your way to wealth.

    Listen no credit isn't bad than bad credit. If you want to buy a truck then here are some stuff you can do. Start driving for a company. There is no shame in this. To be honest, it's better today to work for someone and learn than to go buy your own. Once you start working, save up. Right now, go get yourself a credit card. Capital one has good options for people with no credit. From there start using your credit card on everything. But remember to pay it off the same month. This will boost your credit. Another thing is get a car loan for $10,000. I recommend Chevy Cruze or something. Do six month of payments on that car. Then you will have excellent credit and can buy any truck.

    Unless you live in a small town you will also need about 30% down payment unless signing on to a big carrier you'll need start up fee's money to cover bills like that new car until checks start coming in never hurts to have decent reserve for when that break down happens
