    Wait til you get your tire bill plus all the other damage.Running them walking floors you’ll be lucky to average 5.5 mpg.

    My brother had a tire shop up here I’ll make sure I have some $$ aside for that. My 2004 Mack CX is running 5.5 now. These 50k pound containers are bad enough.

    The plan sure would be to stick with my own ins. No $2k down and it will decrease to their $275 in some time (hopefully).

    Now onto the net... truck maintenance fund, truck payment, taxes. I know the diesel cost is just the tip of the iceberg. When I spoke with them it appears like $1k a day is doable. I would take their trailer to start to test the waters. If all is clear after a few months I'd get my own tipper.

    I was thinking of getting the MC anyway since I'll have to get the DOT just to have it all done and set up. It wouldn't hurt me, I suppose.
