Well folks Im back in the Dump truckin mood and I wanna do it in style so im looking for a Superliner tri or quad axle, a little work needed is ok but I dont want to have to rebuild the whole truck. I would prefer a Mack drivetrain, engine,trans and rears but im not opposed to Cummins and eaton, need decent axles 18+ steer 44+ rears air ride cab would be a big bonus. Well Im looking so lets see what ya got, I may, I repeat may, itll be a toughy but may trade the 85 if I find the right truck. I may also be interested in R or RD tri axles or Quads, same specs, I have no use for a tandem whatsoever unless its rock bottom cheap and anything over 52 rears is wasted here also, Ideally 18 steer 44 rears on an RW with an E7 350 or 400 with a Mack trtxl 1070 or 18 speed with a 16-18' lightweight body but im open to other combos.

Whew, that one may be a little too rough, it would need a new body to haul sand and asphalt, no a/c in TN would suck and a CAT, really? I have no idea why someone would build a Mack with a CAT engine, and when did they come up with that speedo, i have never seen one of those before.

I agree on the Cat. A friend had one years ago and he had the practically give it away because of the Cat. Most people that buy Mack, want Mack.

Back in the day...Macks with Mack engines were in excess of 85%. Nothing wrong with an "old" CAT in my opinion. A dog that purrs!

I have to disagree on the cat motor in a Mack, I have one in my Superliner and have no problem with it and it runs nice and around here people will pay more for the Cat. There is nothing wrong with the Mack motor, but nothing wrong with the Cat either.

The B model Cat engines are great, I'm just not into them over a Mack E6-E7, now if I was going for a KW or Freightliner sure I'd consider a Cat every time.

Thanks for the replys, I have a couple RD's and a CL in my sights, theres also a possibility of a new Granite but its a slim possibility, $170,000 has me nervous.
