The World's Largest Street Legal 4-WD Pickup

The world's largest street legal 4-WD pickup  was recently unveiled in Denver, Colo. The modified  International CXT has pickup styling with monster  truck impact.

 "The CXT is the largest production truck ever built.  We made it even bigger," says Dan Delasantos,  Magicmotor Sports, LLC. "It's bigger than a semi  tractor cab; yet it's street legal. It meets all the  interstate requirements."

CXT trucks were built from 2004 through 2008. They  were built on an International 7300 Chassis used  for dump trucks and snowplows. Delasantos and his  partners have gone the original better in nearly  every regard.

"People build trucks up, and some states let them get away with it, but ours meets all street legal rules," says Delasantos. "We had special bumpers and light systems designed to make our truck  totally legal."

After stripping the CXT down and rebuilding, the cab now tops out at 10 ft., 2 in. It reaches 11 ft., 6 in. at the top of the exhaust pipe, just 6 in. short of the 12-ft. allowable maximum. Total  length is 22 ft., just 1/10 in. short of the maximum  allowed. Curb weight comes in at 16,800 lbs., more  than twice that of a commercial Hummer.

The turbo-charged diesel IH DT466 engine delivers 40  percent more power at 310 hp. It also delivers nearly  twice the original torque, coming in at 1,000 lbs./ft.  Even the tires on the custom-built wheels are up-sized  with a height of 54.5 in. It's equipped with an Allison  3000 Series 5-speed transmission.

The truck is equipped with a Warn 16,500-lb. winch on  front and a Mile Marker 12,000-lb. winch at the rear.  It has 12 KC Daylighter lights, 2 PIAA driving lamps,  4 Hella driving lights, 6 Hella floods, two 9-in. and  two 4-in. Warn lights and 17 LED accent and running  lights. The rear bumper has a height of 27 in., and  the front is 29 in.

"This truck can do a lot off road, too," says Delasantos.  "While it isn't designed to compete with the Monster  Trucks, it will do some interesting things in the sand  and mud."

Delasantos and his partners plan to use the truck as a  marketing tool, leasing it out to businesses for special  events, conventions and other major events.

"We drove it back from Florida to Colorado, and it  gathered crowds every time we stopped," says Delasantos.
