I have a small landscape/hardscape business, most of my work is high-end residential jobs lasting a few weeks, needing lots of materials to remote mountain areas. I can think of at least 10 times I needed 4x4 in the last year for landscaping, plus my personal property and business home need 4x4 access 3-4 months out of the year. So I need a 4x4 no doubt. I am right between Eisenhower Tunnel and Floyd Hill in Colorado so I need some considerable power these are some of the longest and steeper grades in Colorado. I have been watching Ford F550's for a few years and like the product but I don't really think I'm getting much more than a beefy one ton and don't think it will really be a sufficient upgrade. Same for the newer Dodge 5500 except I don't like newer trucks with emissons crap. I really think diesel trucks older than 2001 are the best. So I am considering either a larger cab over or perhaps International w/DT466 I noticed one complete with a plow setup went on ebay for about 10K with only 45K miles. There are good trucks out there especially right now. What type of MPG do these internationals get hauling and unloaded? Any cab over suggestions with my 4x4 limitation? I have about 20K available don't need to spend it all my bank is willing to finance anything I find another 10K. I can't make up my mind about what to actually DO! Ok let's hear what you great minds think I should do.
