    There is more than meets the eye with those SNI trucks. I was, at one time, interested in them. I had a friend of mine who is leased to SNI, and also a respected member of this forum, to take a look at some of them that were for sale at various SNI terminals. He was flabbergasted at the overall condition that these trucks were in. They were horrible. Most had some sort of body damage. Upon raising the hood on a slew of them, he had seen enough. Everything was rusted to hell and some had parts falling off.

    Thats not to mention the "wimpy" specs on these trucks. SNI sets all their fleet trucks at 370 hp.

    Might LOOK like a good deal, but there are certainly better deals out there.

    Yup keep looking and kh not all deals are a steal really you have to go and look at the truck check for leaks rust and so forth. So what is considered a good deal to one could be something else to another.

    Had it been at the beginning of the year we could have sold you one of ours for less than that. We couldn't sell it because there are way too many for sale around here already, so ended up selling it for scrap (made me so sick!).

    Just an update. I'm renting my trailer out to local farmers that want to haul other things when the normal stuff is slow. Saving up for a truck still. Happy Holidays!

    maybe it will help you save up for a truck.

    the case dealer in greeley has a 97 international, 410 horse cat (im assuming a 3406e), 10 speed, claims only 200k on it, and other than tires it looks like it. they are asking like 16 or 17k for it. I have been thinking about making them a cash offer on it if its still there at the end of the summer.

    I dunno guys. I met up with one pumpkin driver after he blew my doors off that bought his own big orange ride. The good ones may be gone by now but his was pretty clean. Hell I would have bought it.

    Can't figure out which co. Truck Services is in GR, MI. I live in W MI and work here in GR and not able to figure out which outfit you're referring to?
    I'm looking at tractors and o/o opportunities OTR or regional.
