I hauled powder cement and sand. If you go to a Home Depot or Lowes out here, chances are it was in that trailer. We hauled to a bagging facilty that bagged for those 2, regular cement, concrete mixes and Rapid Set cement. I was a company driver and that company didnt pay very well, ran "creative" hours. It was really effecting my health and family life. So i found employment elsewhere, making more money, less hours, but not so nice of equipment. The shiny decked out truck wont make up for a small, but the bigger check more than makes up for a dirty truck.

I thought that was a cement carrier. I see lots of those on the go!

Not a truck or a rig, but I saw this van while waiting to pick up my wife after work and something just didn't look right.

You know, sometimes I feel like I'm in the minority when I say that that style of truck really doesn't appeal to me. Like, at all. :unsure:

Thanks for link. There were some pics that will need to be reposted or are gone.

That is a nice pickup. I wish i could afford a payment. I drive past a black almost identical to it. I just drool and dream.

They have 2 of them that their #1 and #2 in seniority have. They put a ton of money into those 2 trucks. They are really nice in person. Lots of little custom fabrication was done.
