    Being Built!!!
    Hello all, Joe Mavrik here.

    I've been trucking locally hauling stone for years. Got talked into OTR trailer work and after 6 weeks decided that it's not for me both financially and emotionally. My partner and broker suggested I try Expedited.

    After a year of this....... I'm hooked. I didn't start out with a big truck, or even one that could haul a lot of weight. I bought a 2003 F-650 that just recently sold on the classifieds here. Not much to look at, but she was a heck of a beginner truck and am excited to be building a bigger an better one from scratch..... so to speak.

    Is there a specific location for truck builds? Or should I just post it here? I have been lurking in the other parts of the forums finding lots of good information and gadgets.

    Glad to be here!

    I bought my truck from Ellenbaum. MAKE SURE YOU BRING A CERTIFIED MACHANIC WITH YOU. Some trucks there he doesn't know the history on. I had a mechanic go with me and I was happy with the price and what was found out about the truck.
