What would you guys think of this truck as a possible switch-n-go truck? I'm looking at building it up similar to etwman's and tthomas's rigs.

They're asking $19,500.00.

I'm pretty sure that it's 185" from the cab to end of frame. Of course it would have a paint job and a few other mods done to it before being put into service.

Thoughts?

Sharp truck. Hydro brakes? I would want a higher horsepower but being a manual will help you. 26k or 33k GVW?

My new '02 International 4300 was only $17,500.
-air brakes
-26k GVW
-EXCELLENT shape.....truck honestly was as close to new condition as possible
-auto
-144k miles
-power options

Sharp lookin truck, but I think you can find one for less dinero.

Heck, I have a 2001 Ford med duty, 75,000 milesm extended cab WITH a dump body, and I think if I were to sell it - I'd ask $20,000.00. So with that said, I think their asking price for just the cab and chassis is a little high.



(if you truely want a great truck, forget the American JUNK and get a nice medium duty Isuzu)
