    No specific color, I've seen all colors here. No age limit you just want go past Phoenix I've herd if you can't go to California. Insurance is less than 300 a month, 2500 escrow taken out at 5cpm or more if you chose. UPS provides plates permits and pays the fuel tax for you no charge back on the fuel tax. They also pay all tolls and scales. You just pay for fuel and insurance and 2290. Pre pass/ezpass is a few dollars a month. No trailer rental or fee's and breakdown takes care of any trailer repair of coarse if your truck breaks down well that's on you. Happy to help out.

    1.02 cpm plus the current fsc. No Ideal but they hold 2k, you can keep it going and use it for tires, repaires, maintenance. I guess the the escrow is for if you buy tires off the ups discount. Or quit after you fill up and buy tires. Don't really know

    Hey Lyle,
    How are things going, are you still with UPSF?
    Is their a weight limit on tractor?
    Are you still getting good miles?
    I live just north of Philadelphia, and was thinking of signing on. Do you get through the Bensalem terminal? If you don't mind me asking, Can you breakdown your last years income and miles run? I'm very interested. Thanks in advance!

    Hello Deputy Cheif, yes I'm still leased on to UPSF. Wieght limit I'm not sure, there are guys here with old Western Stars, 379 Pete's and some w9. Miles are decent I stayed out December and ran my tail off. January has been so so. The winter storm shut everything down. It's getting going again. I go to Harrisburg alot, I have not been to the Bensalem terminal yet. I'll find my last statement for 2015 and get the numbers for you. They do keep us running, keep in mind during the week you mostly do 500 to 650 miles a day then on the weekend you most of the time get a 1000 plus. I rolled out of Houston today headed for Harrisburg 1456 miles. Lots of East coast, it's not bad. What I like is mostly terminal to terminal, you do some relays but most of them are relays at terminals. You got to watch the weights on the trailers, you would think 34k of frieght would be good, but this Harrisburg load was 35100 on the trailer tandems and only 24k on the drives. So be ready to scale they do reimburse for that. Now it can get aggravating sometimes with sitting and waiting for the terminal to cut the load loose so you can roll. But by Sunday it all seems to work out. But I'll get the numbers from my settlement sheet for you.
     
    Deputy Chief Thanks this.

    What is the current compensation and what all does ups cover(tolls, base plates, insurance, etc.)? Is it feasible at the current rates to make a good living with a new(er) truck payment of $120-$140k, or only if you own your truck outright?
