    I had a good experience with Peterbilt of Sioux Falls. They got a pretty decent service and body shop too.

    Don’t know what area you’re in. Grand Rapids Mi. has a lot of used Trucks. Lot of competition. Freightliner, MHC, Kenworth, all have pretty good reputations, and prices. No sales tax in Michigan. If traveling to look at a particular Truck, and want plenty of choices, GR is one of the best cities for used and new Trucks.
     
    Gorilla80 Thanks this.

    Show your DOT number when you buy your plate. They can waive sales tax. Not everyone will, but I know Indiana can

    Michigan has been that way since about 1996 or earlier. They were losing a lot of sales to Indiana and Ohio. No sales tax on any business supplies or parts, equipment etc. Anything not intended for resale.
