Thanks John. Would you build on them if they came here? Not planning on looking into it, just curious about the eye of a professional.
325 hp Cummins, 7 speed Allison and 20" wheels.......Of course we'd look at them but again they are a big vehicle and that's not such a good thing here on Oz bush tracks as you'd know. This chassis could still form the base of an excellent heavy-duty outback tourer though.Would you build on them if they came here?
just an update as I was looking into the titans and contacted them with my needs. It would seem according to the sales manager, that it is limited greatly if you plan on driving outside the country.

A few comments:
The Truck(s), both the XD6600 and XD4400 are offered with either a CAT C7 Diesel engine and/or a Cummins ISB 2010 Diesel engine. The CAT is generally used for export. Once exported, it cannot return to the US as it does not meet current emissions standards for on-road operation. The Cummins engine is legal for use on US highways and complies with current emissions standards. If you were to export the unit with a Cummins engine, it would necessitate (most likely depending on the country) that you also supply your own low-sulfur fuel and DEF fluid. The Cummins engines will not operate on much of the diesel fuel that is available outside of the US and a few other countries.
We offer both of the attached referenced units with either engine. We have units immediately available at multiple locations in the US (Denver and Houston).

Certain vendors of the SD Brazos can fix the Cummins problem, I think.

Don't mean to get off topic, but I wonder if you can tour the GXV shop?
I think Mike and Rene' would happily give you a tour.
Thanks, I'll get over there sometime and take a house warming gift, any idea what might be a favorite beverage?
I spotted one of thier larger vehicles at a local resturant close to me and took pics, had no idea they were made in Nixa! Now I know!
