    yes I have, once with prime, then with quality companies (wont make that mistake again). Made good money with the quality truck until it broke down and quality wouldnt authorize repairs.

    You will be ahead of most people when you get there. Remember to go over the truck with a fine tooth comb. Write down anything you find so it can be taken care of before you roll with a truck.

    Use a microscope on the truck. The smallest scratch, point it out. I picked up one in Baltimore that was SCREWED! Less than 100k and every corner was damaged, and I mean EVERY corner. Good news They fixed everything. No static, they were as floored as I was at the trucks condition.

    Thankfully I chose to run with my cb on tonight. Had one brake on the trailer lock on me. I couldn't see the smoke that was just starting because of it being dark out. Another driver came on the radio and informed me of it. I got pulled over and that's when the real smoke started. Had to use my fire extinguisher to get it cooled faster before it could catch anything on fire. So, now sitting with my triangles out and 4 ways on hoping someone don't hit me til road service gets here.
