    One at a time here....
    You said, "you're", so I will take that assertion as a personal direction. Before addressing that, let me ask some basic questions;
    1) Do you "own" a home with a mortgage? If so, you're broke because you couldn't write a check.
    2) Did you "buy" a car with a loan? If so, you're broke because you couldn't write a check.
    3) Do you carry any credit card debt? If so, you're broke because you can't write a check.

    Do you see the fallacy of your statement?

    Now on to my personal situation. I could write a check to cover repairs but why would I do that when JCT will front the money at NO cost? That is basic money management/finance. Never use your own money when you can use someone else's at no or low cost.

    They didn't but, see below for what you are asking.

    They will, and have cut people off that are too far in the hole. A couple of different things can happen here. One is that you turn the truck in, lease a new one, and the repair balance is rolled to the new lease. The other is that the balance is credited to you and treated as income (rare). Before you go off, people in those instances would be assured of a new (as in brand new) truck which carry 7/700,000 warranties.

    Covered above.

    #1 yes I own a home ,no mortgage I own it
    #2 yes I own a car (several) no loan
    #3 yes I have a credit card 0 balance every month
    There is no way JCT is giving you money out of kindness, if you want to believe that it's ok. If you are such a financial wizard and JCT is dumb and throwing money at you should be the one in the big office.

    Let me just add, all of the things you asked about are personal items that you pay for from the money you make at your job. let's say you're running along and a run over a piece of metal, it kicks up and pokes a hole in your oil pan, now you ruin the engine, no warranty will cover it, the core is no good, 25k for an engine another 6-7 for install and misc. 2 weeks (if you're lucky) down time. Your rent, utilities and groceries, health insurance, credit card, and car loan still need to be paid, and then you still have your truck payment and insurance and no income. See the difference ?

    What if, what if, you can go on forever playing "what if". Luck and circumstances affect the outcome as well. No warranty can cover everything. Some will succeed, some will fail in the same lease contract . Those of you know it all types that predict every L/P operator will fail every time are wrong.

    All I'm saying is if you have to borrow money from the company for repairs you're broke. Being an LP is like being a sharecropper, you make just enough to keep your hopes up. Company don't lease trucks to drivers so they can lose money, leasing truck to drivers (most who have bad or no credit) is a money maker.

    You do realize a lot of companies also borrow money you know that use lines of credit to get equipment and everything are you saying the companies are broke too because they don't write a check? Frankly a lot of these people that turn around and Bash people that run their own business in my opinion or 1/2 ultimately and supremely failed and can't stand others being successful
