Yeah... what do you guys pay your guys? I start them out at about 8 bucks or 9 if they got eperience. I don't think crew boss's don't get more then abuot 12-13 hour and thats with alot of experience around here. I talk to a lot of guys that run crews and they don't get more then 13. Some guys around here even start their guys at 7 or 8 and hour.

These local cops only know parts of the law. This is direct from the Sec of State website.

"Trucks 8,000 lbs. or less towing a trailer or any other combination of vehicles for commercial purposes. (This does not include pickups and vans under 5,001 lbs.)"

By the end of today I will have 2 amazing things to show you guys.
Yes, they will be glorious beyond all means. Zues himself would cring at the sight. The only possible way I have gained possession of these things are from blessings which have poured down from above.

I will keep you posted.

So who needs a gvw plate? and what is it? Is it just an expensive licence plate or an extra sticker? And what is a fuel sticker?
