    Does that mean we don't have a place to park yet if we come visit

    You could get in here but #### I'm scared of Walmart trucks. Live on a sharp curve and these trucks fly around it.

    I feel your pain. I live on a blind curve and pulling out bobtail isn't a big deal because I can see far enough down the road, but with a trailer I have to turn the other way. Let's just say I hold my breath and my heart stops everytime I leave.

    That's an engine rebuild.

    Personally I would use truck paper and find the cheapest low mileage truck truck in a three state area, near where i lived. Or just Texas, no rust down there.

    I live in Fort worth TX
    I have a young family

    I just purchased my first truck.
    2012 Cascadia midroof with 600,000
    DD13
    Eaton Fuller Autoshift
    3.42 ratio (I think)
    Paid 28k
    840 a month for 3 yrs

    The company I'm leased on with pays .93 loaded and .90 empty
    Last week I ran 2600 miles
    After deductions and fuel I took 1125

    Needless to say that dosnt cut it. (Even with a low payment) I was doing that as a company driver, home every night.

    I'm looking into mercer.
    Question #1
    Are there going to be any problems running my truck with mercer?
    #2 how is it gitting into and out of about a 100 miles of DFW?
    #3 What equipment/supplies would I need (minimum) to start running? And what's kinda price tag am I looking at?

    About 3 grand for equipment, pending how fancy you want to get.
