Which one would you go for?

I have been entertaining the idea of getting a new tow rig for awhile now, and after seeing RajinCajun's new rig the bug is back in full force. Due to the things I currently haul and some things I have in the works, I have narrowed it down to these two trucks. Which would one would you take?

This one, International CXT




Or this one, in a crew cab 4x4.

micah will become famous soon enoughmicah will become famous soon enough
dear god man! I too love to dream... but even then, within reason

Price
$93,000
--
Engine
466 cubic inch diesel I-6
Weight
14,500 lbs
Aspiration
turbocharger
Torque
540 lb-ft
HP
220 hp
GVWR
25,999 lbs


of course, price aside, these specs are surprisingly unimpressive. My vote is save your money and get yourself a Cummins (and the dodge that comes with it ain't too shabby...)

Loose the chessy F350 dually bed and build a flat be with an exo cage just over the flat bed.

Wow! This has become a one sided landslide vote. lol
I have a dodge dually with the cummins right now and it is an awesome truck, but I don't think it is going to handle towing a D5 track loader. ( in the works as mentioned above ) Either way it will have a western hauler type bed on it and will be ordered with the optional CAT diesel. And as far as the xxx,xxx price tag I am going to trade in my H1 And the dodge so I will probably get some cash back and have one less vehicle to keep the maintenance up on.
The only bad thing about the CXT is crawling in and out of it all day long being that tall, but you could shure enjoy the view when a hot chick passes you on the highway in a convertible 10-4.

I'd get an old retired truck or something and keep it for a dedicated hauler, then keep the Dodge. You know it's gonna get old getting in an out of that thing everyday.

Well I'll get a truck if you keep it stocked with frosty's. lol
As it is right now the dodge is only used for hauling or long road trips.
I use my jeep our the Harley as my DD.

Well as soon as I get a camera I'll get a pic of the Dodge, jeep, mustang, hummer, Harley, blazer, boat, and mule all in one photo for every one. Unless I can get my bro to come down here and take one for me. And everyone wonders why I'm so broke. but what can I say. If it has a motor I like it. It pays to be single sometimes.
