  • New to internationals

    Hey guys, I am new to international rigs and I am just wondering a few things about them...

    Are lift kits hard to come by for scouts or are they a common item? I dont have a scout yet but I really want to build a not so common off road machine with around 35" tires. Can a scout handle that much rubber?

    I have a step grandpa who sees international rigs as the best there is, are they that tough compared to fords and chevys or is that just a personal preference he has? Is there any factory flaws or certain parts that go bad on these vehicles that I should know about?

    Right now I have an 88 Blazer with 33" tires and it is getting beat up. I am hopeing that interntional trucks are a little tougher, but I dont know. How do their engines compair to the more common brands?

    Let me know what the ups and downs of these vehicles guys because I have a feeling that I will have one in my driveway in the near future if they are as good as I hear...

    Thanks everyone

    Yes there are several lift kits but to handle 35's you will need a spring over lift or four inch springs and a body lift. Even then you may still have some issues.

    He is correct and the only thing they seem to suffer from is rust in certain places.

    Absolutely superior to any. Remember these are designed to be truck and school bus motors.
