    Texas based carrier recommendations?

    I have been in Expedite trucking and O/O in Texas for 8 years. I have never found a Tx or Central Tx carrier. If you find one please post it. I'm leased to a company just out of Nashville and they have been running me in Texas just fine for about 6 years.

    Cube Truck

    Mexican Trucks not needed on U.S. Roads

    Hi x06col, It has been a while since I posted. How are you? I wonder if you have been down to border lately? (Laredo, Eagle Pass, Los Indios, El Paso or Nogales) I have a real problem with the trucks coming across right now. Many of them are bailing wired together. The tires are wore out and...

    Anyo have feedback on C& M Transport?

    I had two of my trucks on with C&M for awhile. They are a great company. If you sign on with them you best be ready to work cause they will run your wheels off. I have since moved both trucks but not because of anything C&M did. In both cases it was issues with the drivers. One had a serious...

    New ULSD Economy

    I'm up to three trucks now in my little fleet and I like what I see with the new fuel. The two old FL70's run much smoother with the ULSD and I'm actually seeing a slight increase in MPG. I'm still using the same additives as I did with the old stuff but less of it. My newest truck 06 M2 with...

    Front-Mount Carrier

    Does it get in the way of freight? What kind do you have? Where in the cargo area do you keep it? Does the gas smell as you travel down the road? Mine is just wide enough to get in the way.

    Front-Mount Carrier

    I have finished my front-mount carrier on my Sprinter. What I had in mind is to carry a small generator and supplies on it. It protrudes 31 inches from the front of the van. Does anyone think I will get a ticket or have a problem with it? KL

    How can I make Windows Explorer's print larger?

    RE: How can I make Windows Explorer's print larger It does get blurry that's why you have to try different setting. Bill Gates (Microsoft) has fixed very little along these lines. I'm not a Microsoft fan can you tell:-) Kathy

    FL70 Question

    When I open the passenger side door on my FL70 there's a white plastic tank with a black screw-on lid. It looks like it is setting on the fuel tank but I guess it is bolted to the truck. Can anyone tell me what liquid should be put in it? It looks like it has water in it right now. I think it is...

    idle stick?

    Draco, You said, "I did some checking and since I have a boxer that rides w/ me I can idle my Sprinter with no problems. Strange that pets have more rights then people in that retrospect." Where did you find that information? Maybe I will get a pet to travel with me. Kathy
