    For that kind of money, you'd make it back pretty quick, doing hot shot loads. Every once in while, I run a hotshot load, and they pay darn good.

    That looks like an old expedite truck that had the bed removed and the hauler installed . The sleeper is nice but increases fuel consumption and eats into your GCWR . It would be interesting to check fuel mileage against what what hotshotters get with regular FL 70 or M2 Crewcabs
