    I say that with a stake thru my heart. The big owners 1600 Penn blvd have got us. I'm so sorry. I fought till there was no more fight left in me. Fuel prices, Ifta, other things, I can't compete anymore. What a shame, I'm only 57 years old. My Tractor gets me to the store tho :)

    How much experience you got? 2 man your talking to a guy with alot of bills me personal i just put in apps at bennett motor express, landstar , mercer everyone has gave me the ok so now its time to pick right now oil industry is down, prices are up but the work is down when gas is 3.25 to 3 bucks we are working if it goes less or higher we slow down those 3 companies are busy all year road and pay is awesome have friends with each company just ask yourself, 1) how long i want to be out 2) how much do i wanna make 3) can i handle the stress. Whatever you decide if you want it bad enough youll make it it takes alot of heart. Sleep eat work trucks is the only way to make it

    I would buy a new truck but I don't think I want monthly payments now. I am leaning more towards the freightliner Coronado or classic XL 2007

    Nice trucks i like both just remember to stay from any cat motor made after 04 and the isx are junk to i hate to say but the dd515hp that Detroit makes is the best motor in my opinion after 04 ive had the accert 05 cat 550 and the isx 600 hp both was junk head problems and sensors on the cat and the isx went through 3 turbos and the egr stuff was crap. Plus the detroit is suppose to be avg 7.2 mpg with a avg 36,000 lbs load

    Good help with the issue. Im just in a bad state creditwise but definitely can look into it.
    I was denied with Greatwide in the past but may be time to try again.


    My main goal s to find an o/o to subcontract and get paid 1099.
    If anyone can use a good driver out of PA NJ area. Hometime not important.
