Fitzgerald Glider Kits


What is a Glider Kit?

A rolling glider kit is basically a new truck with rears and without an engine, transmission or accessorial parts. The standard Coronado we keep in stock and order is basic owner-operator and fleet specifications and can be modified.


What are the Benefits?

The benefits of a glider kit are endless; starting with the initial purchase by saving you up to 25% off MSRP on a new truck. The added savings of the fuel efficient rebuilt 12.7 Liter Detroit 60 series are very substantial with an average of 6.8 - 7.5 MPG.  Less maintenance and downtime + Less maintenance costs + Less cost for fuel = more time and money for you.
