I only have my B-class right now, but I'll be getting my A some time this summer. I'm sick of construction, and my buddy works for a pretty good company out of Milk River that's been hiring us Montana boys like crazy.
Thanks! Yeah Freightliner's are generally a cheaper made truck, but parts are everywhere, hence the popularity. They do ride decent most of the time!

At my last job I drove a truck almost identical to that red Peterbilt for a year or more (05' 379-L), they're basically the BMW of trucks, expensive, but look great! They don't ride the nicest, and have a smaller cab than most other trucks unfortunately, plus if it's a long-nose, it has a good amount of front end blind spots, but all things you get used to. Mine was the noisy twin-turbo CAT with straight pipes, it was noisy allll the time lol!

The Class-A is easy to get, you shouldn't have any problems if you can drive Class-B. The trucking/hauling industry is doing just fine up here, I'd assume the same there in Montana. Grain hauling is doing great as well, just FYI! Best of luck where ever you end up working or driving!

Was about 40*F here today so I was in a t-shirt and everyone had their windows down . . . I was tempted to fire the Suzuki up lol.

Yeah those Lonestars are hideous but cool at the same time . . . still not sure if I like them or not. I'll get better pictures one day I have time to kill, and set the GoPro up for some hardcore gear slammin'! lmao
