    Just throwing this out there, the Advanced safety group for the Pacifica is $995. I have it and especially like the adaptive cruise and surround view. Especially effective for a large vehicle. I intend on getting it on my next Ram if/when they finally start rolling out.

    Good to hear! Hopefully my estimates are very conservative.

    Hours and regulations on big trucks have always been limited. Most major carriers, including vehicle shipping companies have been using ELD's for years to track equipment and deliveries and maintain less paperwork for their drivers while keeping compliant. Running legal does not increase the price of freight and hasn't been a determining factor in freight costs in the past 10 yrs or more. The major factor in freight costs are the low low low low low driver wages paid to foreign drivers who just want to live in the US/CAN and will drive for an extremely low CPM as long as they can live in their truck. Some are even sponsored by religious houses and most of the pay earned goes directly back to that place of warship in exchange for a work visa to remain in the country. That does not drive the cost of freight up at all. The fuel prices are the single MAJOR factor of increased freight prices, closely followed by the price of new equipment.

    Don't believe the hype... ELD's are not causing as many issues as the media or super truckers claim. Does it screw up your sleep pattern, and maybe make you more of a risk on the roads due to exhaustion?? Maybe. Does it clogg up the roadside parking/truckstops.... Big time... Does it increas prices?? Not at all.

    Here's the Canadian pricing.. Which boggles my mind when current MY Sport averages $65k here on the showroom floors locally and the new MY19 is set to start at $56k .. I fear the worst (expecting the new sport to be optioned as a current MY18 Express) which is just a basic bare bones truck using what looks like parts from the 09MY leftover bin... While we know the 19 is all new, the Canadian only sport (best looking exterior visually) it may be a bare bones option. That being said, starting at $10K under the sticker of the 18's... Massive 18 discounts coming??? Who cares!! New 19's are here!

    Although that may be true for auto, we have seen some effects from ELDs in the produce business. Most of these trucking companies had never used this equipment before and is all new to them. Also, truckers cannot make as many runs as they used to before these regulation. Whether they were within the law before hand I do not know. But we’ve experienced issues with getting product here as quickly and some companies are having issues finding as many drivers as before. It normally can take up to an extra day from California, and when loading trucks on the eastern ports it takes them 2 days when they get delayed at the port instead of one. (We are located in the Midwest)

    The driver shortage is due to low wages, and trying to compete. Good drivers are leaving to work for more money elsewhere when their companies won't pay what they are worth due to competing against foreign workers (I don't mean Mexicans) ... Brokers who own their own trucks have plenty of expenses and if they aren't getting the CPM they want, they can find somewhere else to run for the money. While reefer work pays very well, not everyone wants to drag a fridge around. These regulations aren't new. Just easier to enforce with ELD's. Harder to remove digital codes than to throw a piece of paper log in the garbage, under the mattress in the bunk, etc. The equipment isn't that tough, its a tablet and its simple. Trust me the costs and wages associated with trucking are the blame here, not ELDs. Law is law is law... ELD or not. While it may change the time of runs slightly, you've still gotta run legal, and the ELD's allow you to be legal 100% of the time. It basically just does the math for you. The duty status change and how you manipulate it are slightly more difficult. But anyone (90+%) running legal before ELD's became law, won't change anything for them except for the amount of paperwork (less.. a lot less). It takes all that legal info from paper.. to the tablet. Nothing more. That being said, I don't follow much that happens stateside either as I don't cross the border. Maybe slightly different regulations, but I know Canada and the US are trying to become more simplistic and compatible now with ELD's and REG's... We run them and have for many years, no issues with on-time delivery or freight cost.

    I’m still blown away by the fact that Dennis Dillon MSRP on a ‘19 Laramie was $53,465 and out-the-door, minus tax (which in Oregon is 0,05%), title and license, is $40,717!
