Glider kits are truck chassis made without engine or transmission. This new body is paired with a reconditioned engine and transmission, allowing operators to take an old unit off the road and put the major componentry into a newer, safer chassis with more up to date safety features. Operators also may choose to utilize pre-emission engines resulting in better fuel economy and lower maintenance costs. Opting for a glider kit truck gives the operator an ideal combination of top makes and models as well as the flexibility in how they spec their truck. Peterbilt, Freightliner, Kenworth, and Western Star and popular brands of Glider Kits.
