    I would not buy a tandem dump truck unless you have a driver for it. If your sitting in it then you are not bidding jobs or managing jobs. And if your not in it it is not making any money. Insurance will be 2k a year tags 1k. After you factor in fuel I don't see how the guys running the trucks out of the quarry's make any money. But if you really want one I have an 99 international 2500 with a cummins m11 370 hp and a 10 spd 46k rears 20k front with 146k original miles 16 foot bed with 2 way tailgate for 12k runs very good.

    Don't Volvo motors come with a plastic oil pan?

    I prefer Cummins, I'd look for one with a lower power ISX.

    8LL is a 10 speed. It should be just find.

    Altough I prefer the common H pattern RoadRanger 10s. But that's coming from a Highway tractor point of view.
