I wished they would let me put the grill guard  on the RD it came with it but when the new bumper went on the boss didn't want it on

Yeah, I was talking to one of their former drivers and he said they sold all of their excavating trucks. Pretty much just a trash company now.

Maybe a former Ganna truck?

A friend of mine spotted these. He didn't say where but he lives out west south of Dixon so I'm guessing they were out that way.

South of Dixon?  Is that a town?    That's my dads name if you ever see a neat/ funny  tshirt from there I'd take a large for him.

Used to see the light blue R model on I-80, and I-55 when running cars out of Chicagoland a few years ago. The yellow stripe on the hood is the giveaway.

how do the teamsters let a bunch of scabs haul for ups when it's not even christmas time when they're swamped?

Could be a rail yard to rail yard "rubber tire transfer" between railroads, in which case the Teamster UPS contract does not apply.

they pick the trailers up at a yard just outside the fence at ups.  where the ups spotter puts the trailer so the "contractors" can haul them

Not at my building which is where he is coming from. Every Monday and Tuesday we have contractors going hub to hub and some are even doing pickup accounts. We keep filing grievances and they just keep paying. We even have some guys working their vacations.
