You notice that the unveiling was on my birthday Sept. 16. Does that mean that Santa will bring me one??

I hope so.....I haven't found a MSRP on this monster yet....I'll bet it will be between $75,000-100,000. :shock:

Monster truck goes to market
By James R. Healey, USA TODAY
International, the heavy-truck company, thinks buyers are pining for even bigger trucks than today's hefty sport-utility vehicles and full-size pickups, and this week it begins marketing the world's largest production pickup.

International's CXT can tow 20 tons.

Called CXT, for commercial extreme truck, it dwarfs the beefy Hummer H2 sport-utility pickup and even could call the hulking H1 military version "junior."

The CXT is 2 feet taller, 4½ feet longer, twice as heavy and totes more than five times the cargo weight of H2. "You can put the Hummer in back and take it with you," quips Nick Matich, vice president at International Truck and Engine.

It's also about twice the price of H2, about the same as H1. It starts at $93,000, runs $105,000 typically equipped and tops out at $115,000 with DVD player, leather upholstery, tilting dump box and rear-view camera

While at work today, I saw one over at the Cracker Barrel next door to us. This truck is HUGE :!: :shock:

I didn't get a good, close-up look at it. :x By the time I got out the door to go look at it, off it went.....sounded GREAT :!: This truck has even got air brakes on it. :shock:

I am going to have to make a special trip to Memphis to look at his monster. :wink:

I'm not sure about that unveiling date. That may just have been an official time. There was one on display at our club show over labor day weekend... several weeks earlier. I think you're out of luck with Santa. :cry:
