    Occasionally, I watch U-Tube posts where they show new trucks and all the new features. They mentioned that some companies were beginning to put drivers into these trucks as a means of retaining good drivers.
    So my question... Does anyone know which companies are offering O/O spec trucks to company drivers?

    Which features driver?
    I wouldn't be expecting leather seats and refrigerators in company spec trucks anytime soon.
    Reefer companies usually will give you a fridge,cause you'll starve at shippers and receivers without them.

    When I was shopping for companies,I just choose them by what trucks were available.
    I've driven just about everything,and the T 680 just feels like home.
    Everyone of them had the table,tripac,swivel passenger seat,suspension gauge,and Apu.
    The only thing hit and miss was the fridge.
    I kinda like the extra storage and stocking a cooler with free ice at truck stops doesn't bother me.
    I'm spoiled,never driven a 3 years old truck until now,550k,but I should be getting a new 680, sometime this year.
    Love the T 680,wont drive anything else.

    Rule of thumb ... The nicer the amenities are in a company truck, the more time that company expects you to spend in that truck.
