    OP
    GENTLY used trucks with less then 200k miles are not cheap... I know 2-3 cascadias and they are priced $90-100k...

    Put 2 aluminums on the steer axle and a chrome bumper for $2,000 more. Be a nice little daycab.

    You guys that drive for the megas....Is it true that the megas do the absolute minimum of maintenance that
    meets the warranty specs?
    If they're going to sell the truck off as soon as the warranty is up or it's depreciated all the way out why would they do any extra maintenance?
     
    Dino soar, Chubby Fly and lights787 Thank this.

    You know, I will go broke or do short-haul. Noway No How I am doing OTR so why pay for the extra weight, fuel and so on? The newer trucks don't need much maintenance, I know newer KWs don't even need an oil change for few 100k miles! But once the warranty runs out watch out below!!!

    Internet.

    ROTF rolling on the floor laughing.

    LMAO laughing my %$^ off followed by LMFAO etc.

    And these are just the tame ones.

    It dates back to the early days of text online with ascii text (Which still exists today) that summerizes common expressions etc.
