looks great, except its a pos dodge
get a real truck, a Ford!
Just to let you know Dad, the maroon car to the left is a Pontiac Bonneville, not a Grand Am
Well maybe he meant the left of the truck? If so thats a Grand Am.
He said "flanking it to either side", that makes me think that he means on both sides, but if you look to the left of the Bonneville, the red car resembles a Grand Am, but i cant be sure.
Actually the International CXT is the largest street legal truck in the US.
Overall Length: 258”; Cab Height: 108”, Bed Height: 58”
6 ton hauling power
Curb weight 14,500lbs
International® DT466 I-6 diesel, 220 HP, 540 lb.ft. Torque
Front Driving 10,000 lbs.Capacity , Rear Driving 17,000 lbs.Capacity
Polished Aluminum 70 gallon Diesel
Basically built to compete with the H2 and eventually H3.
I think someone is trying to compensate for the lack of something else
No, i think its built for those that want more than a heavy duty pickup but not a full blown semi.
still requires a commercial drivers license as it breaks the regular 10000lbs mark
Oops.. I ment the red one next to it
That international is a nice truck but I would love to actualy own a real truck, Im talking about a 1970's peterbilt retrofited with a catapilar or a cumings disel in the 14L range, turbocharged, lowered, chromed and completly red (peterbilt red) with ploished weels and high performance truck tires, and lets not forget the wood grain dashboard and fully air controled heted/cooled seat. Of course I would never actualy atach a trailor to that thing but my gawd I would love taking sunday evening cruises in that, Maybe scare a fiew ricers here and there, oh and lest not forget the typical light show that loving peterbilt owners put on their pimped out trucks.
Something like this

exept with a lowered height and high performance low profile tires.
That Peterbilt is frickin' sweet. Good luck finding some low-pro tires that come in 30 inch sizes though
Here in Montana there's huge trucks everywhere. Semis, giant Fords, Chevys and Dodge trucks. There's trucks everywhere, and that why I hate driving in this state. Too many times have I been stuck behind some dumb women who doesn't realize that her truck wasn't made for road driving at a speed of 10 miles per hour. GAH!!
Okay i don't think the H2, and the smaller H3, are even anywhere near the same category as the CXT, for starters, the CXT is a big Diesel for towing things and such... And from what i've heard, its under the 26,000lb GVW or whatever the requires a CDL, just need an air brake endorsement. And also, most h2s are SUVs, not pickups.
Put it through the car wash you cheapskate!
Well i work at a truck wash and about 30% of the trailers that come in have the low pros, and about 10% of the tractors(semi) have the low pro wheels, now today was the first time I saw two different tractors with one gigantic 445 wide low pro tires on the back, so it would be a 6 wheeler not a typical 10 wheeler, those rims were AMAZING!!!
Peterbilts are very nice tractors and almost every truck that comes in is a peterbilt or a westernstar.
Man do they gat dirty! one came in 2 days in a row because it got so filthy after the first wash!
Have you ever seen a peterbilt RV? i have seen a couple in town because I live near a racetrack they are very nice.
wait a sec.......you do know those seat covers do actually make it go faster!........naaaa i'm just screwin' with ya
H2. Blah. Basically they took a good car (suburban) and made it ugly. Not only that, but they did away with all the cool features that made the original Hummer so awsome. It's a disgrace to the Hummer name.
yeah some pick up trucks are just HUGE in america. Like the Ford f350 with a 4 door cabin and an 8 foot bed.
It is the size of a limo.
And i thought i was the only that thought this! These Trucks RULE, i'd just love something that big to drive around in!
Trailorless, its amazing how much speed & acelleration Artic-Rigs and even luxury coaches get, I was hard pressed to overtake a coach in the 156 before!
Those trucks are built to carry around large loads thus having more tourque than anyone knows what to do with. I would like a turbodisel one with a cummings motor rated about 600-700hp and about 1100 or more lb tourque.
