I have been driving for about 6 years. Thinking of going out on my own but new trucks are very expensive. After suggestions on a truck to get me rolling for a year or two to save up money to buy a new one

My suggestion... don't do it. This is the worst time in history and you should know that if you have been driving 6 years.

If you really want to buy a truck, i have a friend at Pedigree Used Truck Sales. They sell the prime trucks that have been moved off the fleet. They can provide you with all maintenance records. Call Dominick at (866) 392 5196 in the Springfield Mo office. Great guy. Tell him i sent you. Dominick is a former driver and understands the struggles you have and will face. He can weed through bank financing with you.

The truck i am driving came from there. I drive on a mini-fleet as a prime employee. I get the prike benefits with the flexibility of leasing. This truck is a 2021 Cascadia and was in mint condition. 340k miles. Therefore it has a warranty until July. They do a good job prepping.
