    When I lived overseas saw on the news a Prime truck, decals still on it, crossing the border from Russia into China.
    Whole rigs are stolen and shipped overseas. Some leave from the ports of Miami.

    Take the brake knobs with you when you get out or hide them.

    What good will that do? You don't need the knob to release the brakes. You can still push them in.

    Not surprised that some are taken to china. Not really. The more we do the more we get hurt. Oh well. The L will figure it out. :rolleyes:

    Probably just hauling freight to China; doubt it was left there. The trucks I've seen in China are much more heavy duty than Prime trucks.
