    I thought about this and i remember being told a long time ago when people start making stupid claims of making more money than others, it isn't true.

    You're saying you make 65 com as a company driver? Yikes dude, you NEED to buy a truck. Those are slave wages. You'll see a huge payraise owning your own truck. Yep.

    My drivers start out at 40% of the gross to the truck, which is up to an average of $2.25 a mile, now that is starting rate which works out to 90¢ per mile.
