i'm part time lco...seems like 2 full time jobs i have a 2001 chevrolet hd ext. cab which i bought with 50,000 for $20,000 5 years ago. it's fully depreciated this year. it's been a fantastic truck no problems, i have 82,000 on it now. so i don't put on many miles as you can see. it's just a work truck. i have a car for going to my f.t job i got kinda beat up on income taxed last year. this year is tracking to be the same as last year(income speaking) i lucked out and won a big contract this year. i lost about 1/2 my residential work though. i forcast this year to be my last good year. next year i plan on being slow i'm getting tired of all the lowballers. the market's just flooded with lco now days. would it be a good idea to get a new truck this year. i'm thinking a new truck is what 30k i could probably get 10k for mine.
