Kevin Sweeney has been restoring
this 1987 Peterbilt 359 extended
hood for several years. It has a
500-hp Caterpillar under the hood.

TODAY’S TIP: Start the new year with a budget. Without knowledge of your revenue and expenses you can only guess at how your business will perform. Accumulate three to four months of information to properly reflect your spending habits. Don’t forget to budget for savings, estimated taxes, unexpected situations and lean times.

We have an exceptional average LOH of 1500 miles and a highly competitive rate per mile of .89 for solos and .98 cents per mile for teams plus our 100% escalating FSC, which is currently averaging .26 cpm. That pays an Owner Operator TEAM a rate of $1.24 per mile!
