    I'm looking to buy an international 4700 and drop a V-Box in it, what units should I be looking for? Should I make it elec, gas, or hydro driven. I've seen the 2.5yd tornado poly spreader, this next-gen version looks WAY better than the last one. A friend has a 2yd (I think) SS Downeaster for sale, gas powered. What are my pros and cons for such a big truck?

    Other then your getting a 2 yard spreader not a 6-8 yard spreader which is what the truck is made for.

    Yeah, the truck is legal for about 6t. I'm debating a massive salter too.....
