I'm looking to buy my first truck. My budget is $40,000 or less.
It has been difficult to find a truck older than 2003 that is still in good condition, but I can buy this one from a family member. It is a 1998 International 9200, C12, 9 speed meritor. It has 311,000 original miles, flat top sleeper, and a lift axle. It was a single axle and the lift axle was added on. Almost all of my work is done in Texas and Oklahoma, and most of my loads are lighter than 15,000lbs in a van trailer. Will this truck get decent fuel mileage since it is a flat top and is the Caterpillar C12 a good engine?
Is this a good question?
