    I would look at 5.5 mpg and 87,000 miles. You can adjust the other numbers as well to fit you. It's better to set your goals lower and beat them than the other way around.

    Did I interpret the numbers correctly? I'm more concerned with how the income to the truck is divided under the 10% down and 26/76% plans, especially factoring the cost private party medical insurance.

    Simple math for l/p if you can meet your living expenses at $2000 a month you will be fine there will be better months but you should always be able to take home $2000.

    Always best to have a reputable lawyer who has experience with this type of stuff go over the lease with a fine tooth comb and a good magnifying glass. Trust no one.

    I appreciate being up front and not trying to blow smoke.

    Factoring in private health insurance the number I'd need is closer to 3k as a bottom line net. Without that little necessity the 26/74 plan would work. I like what Sammons has to offer, so I'd be more interested in more information about the 10% down fixed payment plan you mentioned.

    do you take a lawyer with you when you go to the bank for a car or home loan?

    it's not a central or england LEASE.

    company has been doing this since 1962. and no one has filed a lawsuit. lots of o/o's got there start this way.

    We'll send you a copy if that is the only hold up. We would want an application first.

    They want you to stay out 4-6 weeks, was one of their excuses today when I filled my online application. Make sure your 2 years experience was OTR, regional or local won't work
