Western express lease purchase....thoughts???

As the originator of this discussion I thought I would update all on my endeavor here at western.....it has been fantastic. For the first time in my 20+ years of driving, a company had actually lived up to the hype they put out there. When I first spoke to my recruiter (Eric) I took it all with a grain of salt.....seemed to good to be true. I, literally, have found no difference in what was told to me before orientation and now being with them since June. Nothing hidden. No "I forgot to tell you about that". No bulls@$t!! How refreshing. I'm averaging 1.75/mile. Im averaging 2000 miles a week and I'm home every weekend. After all expenses (750/week covers lease payment, insurances, taxes, maintenance escrow, etc) and fuel I'm averaging .72/mile. That's right.....I'm AVERAGING a little over 1400.00 a week AND I'm home on the weekend (usually get home fri nite/sat morn and leave sun nite/mon morn). Granted, the truck I'm buying had 380000 miles on it but I'll have it paid off in 2.5 years and with the mileage I'm running that gives me a paid off truck with around 650000 miles. No balloon payment and NO interest. I've looked at dozens of companies lease programs and not seen one with both of those. The only downside is that if u like to TALK to your DM it's difficult to say the least. Everything is Q/C. Small price to pay.

Just wondering if anybody has heard anything about the W/E lease purchase good or bad. I'm going to orientation Sunday for flatbed ding. Any input would be appreciated.
