its an International built frame with an international cab, cat motor and a cat style only hood. interior is different than that of the Internationals. Cat and International have an agreement with building trucks and sharing emission technology for EPA compliant engine building but im wondering how long this relationship will last as it has not been a smooth road for either of them.

The 'Caterpillar' engines are actually yellow painted maxxforce engines

Dual EGR motors by IHC. They already quit making these junk motors. IHC is in financial trouble because of the route they took with these engines vs. using urea.

IHC has been in financial trouble for as long as I can remember. I used to dabble in their stock because of the wild swings. LOL was Russian Roulette.
