    Has anyone seen a photo of the new International cXt? OMG......that thing is a monster. Estimated cost is 90g's and it is supposed to do it all and do it all well. Here are some of the spec's that I know.

    4 x 4 dually
    dump bed
    payload something around 12,000#'s
    towing equal to a single axle dump truck
    custom options available
    crew cab
    ground clearance looks to be 3 feet in the photo

    This thing looks P i s s e d o f f!

    I saw a picture of it some time ago when it came out. I think it's a really cool picture, and truck, but unless I was a yuppy I don't think I would be buying one. The truck bed on it is pointless, it's too high up in the air to put anything in. The only point in my opinion would be to draw attention to yourself driving something like this. Personally, I could care less about drawing attention to myself, I buy what I like. The expense for a truck that size, (tires, gas, insurance, etc..) would be enormous, not including the cost of the truck. I could buy 2 brand new f-350's for that price, or better yet buy one good truck and put the rest towards a house and watch my money grow.

    Here are some good pictures:

    I agree. I would never buy one either, but you know someone buys these things just to look cool (or so they think) I do think it would work well for plowing snow and doing Pepsi commercials :rolleyes:

    There's a handful of celebrities that are driving these (and similar), like Carson Daily (sp?), and Ashton Kucher (sp?), and a couple others I can't remember.

    It would be kind of fun to drive one around for a day, but that's about it. Wouldn't own one (even if I had their money)

    Hmmm, on second thought, after looking at the black MXT version in the attachment above (in ECM Lawns post), I kinda like that one. Looks kinda "Hummer-ish". Maybe I could see that one in my driveway afterall. :)

    Like the guy in the Pepsi commercial..... Just go buy an old Pepsi truck and put it in the "air" like a monster truck !!!
