Still trying to figure out if the rates are gonna go up, or if the owner operator is gonna be done.
I see a lot of sdp powered trucks go pretty cheep. Figure in an afternoon of work and a few bux in tuning and they're pretty good.

I've been on ELD (not to be confused with e-logs which are different) for about a year now. It's not that bad. I did manage 28,000 miles in 63 days on it.

Unless my calculator is broken you're averaging 300 miles a day. My 63 days includes days off. Probably averaged 650+ miles a day on working days.

Well a Texas representative passed a bill into the house yesterday to put it all on hold. We'll see what happens.

Anyone need a 12v71?? Picked up 2 over the weekend...one Non-turbo, one twin turbo. Both Genset engines.

We're kicking around the idea of keeping the 12v71T and finding a 379 with a junk engine...
