How can you not love this truck?!

  1. I don't know about the whole air-suspension thing (it might not stand the test of time and heavy load endurance), but the idea of mounting a hydraulic pump to the driveline is a beautiful idea. Can't wait till something akin to this system makes it way to the Macks and Internationals.

    And the engine.....almost 1 hp/cubic inch, and it's a DIESEL!!! I mean, I remember when a 363 CID gasoline engine would be LUCKY to make that much power, and forget about having any torque! This engine is beautiful! 4 valves per cylinder, it's probably a quad-turbo, I see at least 2 on it.

    I've also heard that Navistar is working on a heavy-load air spring system, so maybe they've got it right. After all, my car (see UserName) has air suspension, and I haven't had a single problem. I tow around my jet-ski, a few motorcycles, and the occasional car; and my suspension wasn't designed to have to do all that. I guess if they designed an air system that was made to take more abuse, it might work.

    By the way, Ford, not many rednecks will find use for the laptop.

    i dont think rednecks would be the targeted buyer for this truck if it went in production<!-- Signature -->
