    When I start replacing dump trucks, I am switching to a class 5 for load carrying capabilties. I have been hoping now that Kodiak lineup is defunct, GM will beef up the frame and components on the current 3500 and compete directly with Ford and Dodge. If not, I think after always owning Chevys, I will be switching to Dodge.

    I doubt it In own two and I got a letter from International saying that they are making a truck line similar to the 5500. The Chevys are the best trucks I've own, very little problems with my older one (2005). I don't think I'll buy an International though, I think I'll be going over to Peterbilt for my service trucks.
