Review

Great truck. I've had a lot of trucks
in my business, many Fords.

My experience has always been a big
truck with a little engine and lots of
gears. Poor power to weight and
constant shifting.

The Navistar DIT diesel is definetly
the way to go with a truck. When the
turbo spools up, there's no catching
it. It'll pull a house off the
foundation and gets good mileage (for a
truck) as well. There are plenty of
chatrooms for Q & A on this setup if
you have a problem, and the guys will
give you lots of responses to keep it
going.

Best Features

The Diesel. This is the best engine in a truck. There are so many 'tricks' that can be done to this engine, the power is unbelievable.

Worst Features

Better side mirrors. Some kind of West Coast mirror like on the newer trucks. A better way to open the sliding rear window. In an extended cab you really can't reach back and open the window while moving.
