What is a
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.
