What is everyone's opinion between the two. I like them both but am having a hard time deciding between the two. Any thoughts, pros, cons about either? Would prefer actual facts, not just rumors.

I know I have been asking a lot of questions but I am just trying to get everything lined up for when I do make the career change to trucking.

Maverick has a sign in TN posted in their yard: $60k/year+ starting wage for drivers.

I have looked and compared the two by several aspects. I even emailed them both but still waiting on one to reply back. I really like both. I really like both company's equipment. Just wondered if I could get some professional advice from other TMC or Maverick employees. What the cons are for each.

It all depends what's in the appearance bay the day test out I requested a 379 13 speed and got that, they are phasing them out and going to the 579 within the next year or so there will be only 579. 579 being the newer model peterbilt with a 9 speed transmission and more aerodynamic look to it verses the old school square Pete 379. All of their trucks are top of the line and taking extremely good care of and washed quite frequently lol

I heard tmc does not allow power converters in their trucks. Is this a fact ?

Well I kinda hate that but like it at the same time. I love the look of the 379 but I would like the room in the 579's. Did you get my message?
