    Does jtc haul Tyson scraps like K&B or do they get any good long hauls?

    I don't know if they were scraps, but I have taken 2000lbs boxes of various meat parts to a place that makes lunch meats and such. We haul a lot of Tyson loads. They are usually heavy, but you can get a light load every now and then from Tyson.

    JCT is mainly 1000+ plus mile loads, but there are some shorter runs thrown in the mix. The shorter runs tend to be if do a swap or agree to run a couple of local runs if needed. JCT is a long haul OTR company for the most part. We do have some regional guys around (California and Texas that I know of).

    I would say they are a step up from a stock rig. I drove a stock at swift and this one has more options. They also have petes and some KWs on the way as well.

    Well, it certainly isn't the Tyson trucks getting the good loads. Well, the solo drivers anyway. That's experience speaking.

    JTC, I'm thinking you mean JCT, or are you posting in the wrong section, just curious

    Looking over his comments and specific misspelled words, I think he was attempting to poke fun.

    Pretty much baseline trucks, with a few limited options...nothing like an O/O spec'ed truck. ..pretty cheap made, but extremely high payments....less than 6% of L/O's from JCT will ever see the title to the truck....
