    I've never seen a lease op for USX going over 60mph. I guess that says a lot about the profit margin they have to work with.

    You really need to do your research if you want to lease. Dont just jump into it. Especially if you dont understand the costs. Take home checks from a lease operator are usually not what that driver gets to hold onto for himself. Fuel, repair, taxes, all the other costs of trucking. Not someth to take lightly because you see dollar signs, lol.

    Personally, I think you're lying thru your teeth.
    What happened to your job at Arnold last year? Also, I thought you were with TMC and everything was hunky-dory there 5 months ago. So now you claim to be a L/P with US Express? And bringing in $950 to $1900 a week, after truck payments, maintenance, and other costs are deducted? Bullcarp!

    But one true thing is... your job hopping stands out loud and clear.

    Just a small "sampling" of your posts:

    I'm just curious how you can claim to get $950 to $1900 a week, after truck payments, maintenance, and other costs are deducted.
    TTR is riddled with new lease operators getting regular paychecks, ranging from $3.50 to less than $100 per week, after all lease costs and deductions are taken out.
    I simply don't want newbies, often pressured into the company's lease program, to be misled. (as they consistently are)

    I personally rode with a L/O for USX that runs his truck at 70. Says he gets better mileage between 67-70.
