    Yes buy a used worn out truck. Low payments, lower insurance etc. Don't forget to add in all the lost revenue while it's in the shop plus all the out of pocket expenses for those repairs. Never buy a truck with more than 200K miles on it. You'll go broke with the repairs on the old cheap trucks.

    People who think a new truck is the only way to go always have a rationale, but it’s basic math, new trucks are money pits. A $45-50k investment will get you a damn nice and solid old truck that will serve you just as well, actually better. Versus what, a $175k new rig that will definitely spend its fair share of time in the shop? There’s a reason guys are still running around in 15-20+ year old trucks. Because they run and make money.

    I don't want to mean, people can get what they want old or new. But I always wanted to say (Congratulations, you got yourself a brand new piece of shit!!). I prefer older pre-emissions trucks, no payments it helps.

    Pozdrav Bosko. Ja Sam o/o ali vozim pod tudjim autoritijem. Posjedujem Volvo 2007 vn670 Cummins ISX. Kad sam ga kupio imao je nekih 980k, sad je vec na 1,2mil. Kao sin mehanicara, veliki sam paranoik, i imam osjecaj da ulazem u njega I vise nego sto treba, ali uz ovakve mehanicare kakve imamo, ne mogu se primiriti, jer nista ne znaju, I samo pogorsavaju masine, nema napretka sa njima. Ja Sam radim oko njega koliko mogu, ali to nije puno niti dovoljno. Nazovem ponekad staroga, pa uz video poziv, bude starina od pomoci. Zivim u Chicago, ali sam poceo da vozim kamion kod majstora u Detroit, Amera, cini se pouzdan majstor, pouzdanji nego bilo ko nas u krugu Wisconsin/Illinois/Indiana. U poslednje vrijeme, motor postaje sve bucniji, i vise nego li trebao da bude, ako uzmemo u obzir da je Cummins bucan, vrlo. Izmijenjao sam mu sve sto se promijeniti moglo a da nisam otvarao motor I vadio mjenjac. Kad bih mu ne daj Boze odradio overhoul I zamijenio trandzu, bio bi cakum pakum nov. Ali bez ovih dvoje pouzdanih, sve se moze okaciti macku o rep. Poceo sam da razmisljam o novom kamionu, kad kazem novom mislim sa celofanom u njemu, a znam da su, kao sto ti rece, govna!! Takodje sam imao ideju da kad stane ovaj motor, odem i ubacim ISX15 u njega, obzirom da se generalka razlikuje od novog motors u 3-4k, a kad je bal, nek je maskbal. Pa opet, kao I kamioni, tako i motori, novo sranje. Vozim u krugu od 300-700milja oko Chicaga I za 4 ture nedeljno, grosujem otprilike 5.5! Za pet tura od 7.0-7.3k. Meni dovoljno, za djavola rad ako se ne dodje kuci kod familije. Reci mi, da li imas nekog majstora, u okolini Chicaga u kojeg bi se mogao mozda zakleti, da mi ga preporucis, I sta mislis, koji bi najbolji potezi bili kad su I pitanju motor I mjenjac? Imao bih jos pitanja ali, polako cu, redom se krave lizu. Hvala I ziv bio!!

    Update: Sad vidjoh kroz komentare da imas svoju radnju?
