I'd suggest a single-axle tractor with air-ride suspension. You can get a quality one for less than a late 90's model diesel p/u. The IH 466's were generally underpowered for the size truck they were put in, and generally didn't have enough gears in the tranny to travel distance with. I'd suggest a late 90's, early 2000's FLD Freightliner, I have a single-axle 2000 model, air-ride with a 330hp M-11+ Cummins turned up just a bit, with a 10-speed. The truck will run 80 (empty) on the freeway in 10th at about 1800 RPM. I have yet to run short of power. You will hardly know 18K is behind you. Plus, it turns much much shorter than my '03 crew cab F250, and rides as good or better. The later Ford L9000's are nice trucks too, and can be had for cheap. Larry Stigers in north eastern KY often has some, just google them. A place called www.mikesrebuildables.net in Celina, TN had a good running Volvo (ex-rodeway freight truck) with air ride for around $4500 I believe if they still have it. They had two or three, one didn't need work, the other two did if I remember.
