    My wife and i are going to try a lease purchase, we are looking at Jbhunt, they SOUND pretty good, better than the other options we've looked at. Any opinions or better yet true knowledge about this?

    Did something drastically change? Last I heard they would drop you to .86/mile if you rejected a dispatch. Only broke above .90/mile if you literally ran forced dispatch. No personal experience, but I've talked to a few lease drivers that were happy at Schneider

    Lots of people like JB, including myself. The only large carrier I'd ever recommend. You can get a good used truck on their L/P without going in debt for $150K.
    I would have leased onto them as an O/O but they have a geographical limit.
    Get a Freightliner when you get there, don't fool with the Peterbilt with the Cummins engine, get the Freightliner, it's the 350 Chevy of the trucking world, and JB does very good maintenance on their trucks.
    You'll be fine, especially if you team.

    Thank you for the info! My wife doesn't drive, not yet anyway but she does all the paperwork and what she can. We're just to the point of bedding to step out in faith and do this! Thanks again for your input!

    I spoke to a driver yesterday and he was very happy, said most loads pay 1.50 plus a mile of you choose your loads wisely! I think we're going to try it out and see. Hopefully more people will get in on this!

    But Dave, what do they pay? That's the most important part of the equation.
