Started with Pinnacle Transportation for a few years, then off to hauling Gas , Bought the first of two trucks and leased to Quality Carriers for a SHORT time , back to pulling gas after that short stint running at 87k 6 days a week till DOT figured out my weight problem, then off to C X Roberson for a year before fuel skyrocketed back in 05 or whenever that was and left due to no FSC.
Pulled the Lease and ended up at Ozark Motor Lines for the better part of the next few years. Fantastic company as far as O/O were concerned.
In between was Thomas fuels and lubricants , On-Site fuel Service , and a few independents.
Been out of it for three years now after twelve years in it and don't miss a thing about it other than sleeping over a vibrating motor every now and then and the occasional challenge of banging out 1000 miles plus three or four days in a row.
Ran two ( with my pops) Classic XL's both with Detroit 500's and 13 speed's with all the parameters wide open. Great trucks both of which in excess of 1.2mm all on original motor , tranny and clutches when sold.
Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt
