    my friend , he just got some job to haul tri-axle end dump. we getting confused about how to choose a right day cab and right axle.
    some one saying that tri-axle end dump needs 20k lbs steer axle, but why? is any changes when lift the box?
    he just interested in a 2008 International prostar day cab,
    450 hp , 18spd standard tranny, 205 wheel base,
    steer axle 12K , drive axle 40k lbs
    Is this truck will be able to handle a dump trailer?
    Thanks!

    It will do the job, not the best setup but this is the new way…..

    46k rears and a 13-14k front would be nice. 24.5 talls with 3.70-4.10 gear and a 550 would be top shelf…..
