ReviewGreat 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 FeaturesThe 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 FeaturesBetter 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.
