Have you guys seen the new International CXT?
http://www.internationaldelivers.com...severe/cxt.asp
http://www.internationaldelivers.com...ail.asp?id=595
http://www.internationaldelivers.com...20CXT%20SS.pdf

This truck will tow anything you can throw at it! It comes with the DT466E engine and 5 speed Alison automatic transmission. I have 350,000 miles on several of these engines with no tear down done yet. They are barely broke in good!

If your a Dodge fan check out the new Dodge DCX Ram Mega Cab. It weighs over 6600 pounds. http://www.detnews.com/2005/autosins.../A01-78860.htm


What are your oppinions on these new trucks? I am thinking of getting the International.

As shown HERE, the International is far too tall to tow a 5th wheel. Look at the height of the bed rails from the ground.

Oh well It also looks like the exhaust stack would smoke up the nose of the fiver anyway.

2001 They both are sweet looking units, but after having several Dodge trucks, I'd go for the Dodge with the Cummin's. Ed
