It'll throw a little weight forward if you're stuck on ice too. I think I'm going to set my next trailer up to lift 1 and 3, I thought about all 3 so I could do it however I wanted but that seems like overkill lol.

BRE, what is your plan for the ELD mandate? I know in the past you said you wouldn't do it, but I'm curious if you've changed your mind? Or you are possibly already running them? Just curious.

Not running them as of now. We were gonna hold off till the April enforce date when they were gonna start handing out, out of service stuff.
However last thing I heard was he ordered aobrdís so we are grandfathered until 2019.

A deal came to me, and Iíll know the fine print later this week. If it turns out to be what they were thinking, itís gonna be kinda hard for me not to switch. However I was tired of switching jobs a long time ago.

This deal will make life a WHOLE lot easier with elogs coming into play and likely make me like driving again. More money, home more, and way easier and better work but weíll see how things shape up when I know more.
