    Wondering if any sbl ic's on here could shed some light on gross pay averages. Possibly out of creola,al area. Looking at possibly getting another truck in the future. Also, i cant find any truck requirements anywhere on their website... Anyone?

    Figure on 1.80-2.00/mile running average. Last year I ran about 86k miles, this year probably less. Next year will be better with the way things have picked up. I try to average 5k for every full week of running, some weeks are a lot more some a lot less. There are some good opportunities to run dedicated lanes/customers that pay well and are consistent, but it will vary from terminal to terminal. One of the things you have to look at is the rate for the loads your terminal has. If they haul cheap, you might want to think twice about becoming IC.

    As for truck requirements, its really only pump/compressor and maybe HIT. Otherwise as long as its dot legal and new enough to wire in a qualcomm you should be good to go.
    fwiw a lot of us run mid-roof Pete 379/389 with Cat (pre-dpf) engines.
    If I were you, I'd look for something with a fresh in-frame, 270 or less wb, 13 speed, 3.25-3.55 rears, a big enough cab and sleeper to keep you comfortable, and a solid service history. Plan on spending 20k+ per year in maintenance.

    yea thats all deducted out of your settlement. You can get your own bobtail/workers comp but its usually cheaper to just get it through superior. Only thing you need to get that superior doesnt offer is a toll transponder/prepass and health insurance.

    lmao...I'm sorry to hear. They are the 'Swift' of tankers. Plus, I've heard about how they really treat their drivers. They used to be a great company to drive for, up until the mid-90's from what everyone(older) has told me. I've never looked into them at all.
