    ok, if you will, please fill me in on your truck info

    type of truck/what engine and power rating/tranny/axle ratio, what you use it for (box truck or whatsoever and how big), what your mpg and reliability has been and any other comments.

    i am mostly interested in learning on others thoughts about the dt466 in its various configurations...

    thanks guys!

    Hey..I bought a 2006 International 4300 expediter in mid 2007..ran a dedicated account until I decided to go overseas and drive.

    I still have the truck..waiting for the economy to pick up and hopefully get my dedicated gig back..which is another story.

    Anyways..the truck has the 255 hp dt466..660LB torque..6 speed tranny with 3.70 gears in the rear..33K rated..22 ft box..84 inch sleeper.

    Truck has done very well with fuel mileage..average around 8.5-9 MPG..keeping the speed down around 60mph..truck will do around 85 mph topped out..but sounds like a freight train..pulls well on mountains(but then again I was pulling low weight)..and can run 75mph easy and smooth.

    I haven't had any trouble..but then again it does have low miles 79K..nothing other than a few glitches with the dash instruments..small stuff easily dealt with.

    The dt466 is a great engine which is why I bought it..I did plenty of research..you can get it fixed anywhere..plus it will hold up.

    Hope this helps.
