Re: More good news in the trucking industry...
All of you may be correct to a pointe, except maybe the urea comment. But, the industry has many aging trucks out there due to not buying as many the last few years. In a number of companies, at least the one I just left, if you got a truck with less than 600k on it, you had a new one. Now 600k isn't all that high of mileage for an Owner/Operator, they usually take care of their trucks. Big companies, and I've been with three of them, say they maintain them, but not really. Couple that with the "steeringwheel holders", in the big companies, and the trucks get the crap beat out of them. Therefore the increase of new truck orders. I'm not saying there aren't any, but the O/O I know, aren't buying new ones
Personally, I don't see the economy doing anything much, but I am in the newest third world country.

Good stuff, trucks bring it!
I don't care if my thread goes off topic, it's all BS anyway!!!
