What Is a Typical Freightliner Glider Kit?
Envision a new truck and take away the engine, transmission, rear axle…
Glider Kits allow a customer to re-use the major components from an existing vehicle,
to build a refurbished truck using many new components.
We offer factory installed Remanufactured Engines Pre-Emission (EPA98) or New
Rear Axle assembly installation options. Includes full manufacturer’s warranty.
Available models are;
- Coronado (1st Gen)
- Business Class M2
Front axle assembly with wheels and tires is required and standard provisions for customer furnished engine, transmission and rear axle.
Standards include (vary by model):
- Battery box
- 100 gallon fuel tank
- R-12 air conditioning components
- Power steering pump and reservoir
- Transmission shift control
- Fan shroud
- Engine harness
- Exhaust system (exhaust completeness varies by EPA year, call for clarification).
All cooling, CAC, air brake systems and plumbing are included and mounted where possible.
Assembly completion is support by approximately 160 loose parts, that are boxed separately, and shipped with the kit.
Gliders provide a financial alternate option when you consider the possible FET, and fuel economy savings.
