    I saw that today on AOL. Very expensive. I just bought an International 4300 with 20' dry box for under 60k. they want over 100k. I bet it could push a ton of snow though..nice 12' on there.

    Thats a great looking rig. Wonder how steep those ramps are to get that ATV in the bed? I like the 12' plow idea, but don't forget the strobes. :rolleyes:

    MMM.... Belly Blade

    That would be awesome for any contracts with the local government, such as township and private roads

    That think is way underpowered. Take a look at the specs and see that a Dodge CTD or Ford PSD (stock) blow it out of the water (or snow lol). I do admit it looks awesome...

    Why do you think it is underpowered? A GVWR 0f under 26000 with that combo is OK. Have you looked at what sort of applicatons the DT466 is rated for? It has a clutch engagement torque rating of 400 ft/lbs at 800rpm. The Cummins ISBe 225 is about 350 ft/lbs clutch engagement torque, 225 HP and 520 ft/lbs and rated for up to 46000. You won't win any speed races but it should move it just fine. Just think of all the hot shot people towing heavy with their pickups with this much weight.

    Everybody these days think they need 600 ft. lbs of torque and hundreds of horsepower. I have that same setup with my International 4300. I haul about 18-20kpounds with it in a 26 foot van body and it will easily reach 80 mph! They know what they are doing when designing these trucks.

    That is a awesome looking truck. There is a guy in my town that has built one at home kinda like that. It dosen't have that good of a paint job or as good of tires on it. I think it has a 4X4 front axle but I do not know if it is hooked up. If I can sneak some pictures of it I will post them. :waving: BOAST
