Its not about the size or color, its how you use it. My tractor is a 2009 TB and still runs and looks like new, just take care of your crap and it will last forever, if you go out trying to look "Legit" you will be out of business in 3 years for spending all your money on shinny new needless equipment. Steve, Can you please link the article you wrote about the rig I started with? I think that can help greatly here.
i know plenty of cops who have side businesses because their hours with the cop job gives them the time to do so.

you got to make it while you can in life, you only get one go around.

if you get a job as a cop at a early age and put your 25 years in you can be retired from that when you are 45 to 50 years old and go full time with the business after doing it part time for all those years.

it's pretty amazeing in that the cops i know who have side businesses are making and saving money hand over fist and by the time they are in their mid 40's they are set and the cops who just go do their job and go home and then retire live pretty good lives but nowhere close then the dudes who work double time.
