    Good luck, really hope you have a Cummins under the hood. IH is having some hard luck with the engines

    I agree, good looking rig but good luck with it. The tow company I work part-time for has 14 trucks and are switching from the Internationals to Fords for this reason. They actually filed a lawsuit against International because the trucks where in the shop more then on the road with DPF and engine issues.

    We were looking into getting a terra star for our new ambulance chassis, but have been hearing a lot of horror stories about the Maxxforce engines (terra comes with the Maxxforce 7 I believe)… so looking into other options- Freight shaker or Ford… wish GM still made the 4500's- that with a Duramax/Allison would be our best option! Thumbs Up

    Anyhow- truck looks good- for a municipality or county I assume?
