Would have to say that's a possibility, but I'm hearing that there doing pretty good with the RV's so they may also think it's worth keeping.

Looks promising to me

Navistar Defense to Upgrade 2,300 MRAPs to Defend Against Evolving Threats
LISLE, Ill., Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Navistar Defense, LLC received a delivery order today for up to $282 million to provide more than 2,300 survivability upgrade retrofit kits for International® MaxxPro® Dash Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles. The order from the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command will upgrade MaxxPro Dash vehicles in theater with additional protection in response to evolving threats in Afghanistan. The order also includes parts and service.

"Anticipating the needs of our Armed Forces continues to be a top priority for Navistar and we are proud to offer the vehicle of choice to help them complete their missions safely," said Archie Massicotte, president, Navistar Defense. "Threats continue to change and it is our responsibility to stay out ahead of those threats with the best technology available."
The MaxxPro family of vehicles was originally designed to accommodate rapid vehicle enhancements as threats evolved in theater. Since 2007, the company has provided enhancements to both survivability and mobility through its work on its rolling chassis body swap, DXM™ independent suspension retrofit kits, armor kits and more.
"We also understand the balance of keeping our service men and women well equipped at a reasonable cost to taxpayers," said Massicotte. "We will keep offering integrated solutions as well as alternatives to buying new vehicles so that we can keep our Armed Forces modern and ready for future operations."
Navistar has delivered nearly 9,000 MaxxPro units in nine major variants to the United States and its allies. This order follows the company's MaxxPro rolling chassis body swap, which upgrades more than 2,700 MaxxPro vehicles with a DXM™ independent suspension, MaxxForce® 9.3 engine, 570 amp alternator and driveline.
Work for the survivability upgrade will be done in Afghanistan beginning in December 2012. The order is scheduled to be completed by July 2013.
Navistar International Corporation (NYSE: NAV) is a holding company whose subsidiaries and affiliates produce International® brand commercial and military trucks, MaxxForce® brand diesel engines, IC Bus™ brand school and commercial buses and Navistar RV brand of recreational vehicles. It also is a private-label designer and manufacturer of diesel engines for the pickup truck, van and SUV markets. The company also provides truck and diesel engine service parts. Another affiliate offers financing services.

Navistar International Corp. won’t apply SCR to its 15-litre MaxxForce engine and will instead lean on Cummins Inc. for its high-horsepower requirements, Jim Hebe, senior vice-president of North American sales operations confirmed during a press briefing in Salt Lake City.
Truck News reported that it’s the first official confirmation that the company won’t pursue its own 15L engine once it uses up its remaining emissions credits and can no longer pay non-conformance penalties for engines that don’t meet EPA2010 emissions standards.
“Our intention is to continue to build them as long as we can and then phase into the Cummins ISX15,” Hebe told a small gathering of truck journalists here today. “It’s a shame, it’s a great engine.”
Hebe said anticipated demand for the 15-litre MaxxForce would not support the cost of further developing the engine and applying SCR exhaust aftertreatment to it. International will focus on its higher volume MaxxForce 13 engine, which will combine selective catalytic reduction (SCR) exhaust aftertreatment with Navistar’s in-cylinder solution to form what it has dubbed In-Cylinder Technology Plus (ICT+).
Officials indicated Navistar is already building International trucks with Cummins engines and that the existing Memorandum of Understanding between the two companies will soon become an official supply agreement.
Hebe provided some insight into what went wrong with Navistar’s EGR-only emissions strategy. He still believes pursuing a non-SCR emissions solution was the right call, however he admitted it was a mistake for the company to put all its eggs in one basket.
“Two decisions were made in this company in August 2008,” Hebe said. “One was to go EGR and the other was to go it alone. The decision to go with EGR was not the wrong decision, but the decision to go it alone was the wrong decision. What really, in the end, created the biggest issue was not EGR, it was that we ran out of time and we ran out of credits. If we had stuck with a partner in the engine business, we would have had more time to develop our in-cylinder solution and probably at the end of the day, we would’ve gotten that. That’s water over the dam now.” deSanford
