The Smart Business Decision
Get a brand new truck for up
to 50 percent less.
•
Now you can take advantage of the technology, safety,
comfort and styling of a new Freightliner truck at a
surprisingly low price. How? With a new Freightliner
Glider Kit. The glider kit is a great option that will give
you the benefits you’d expect from a new truck–such
as a choice of option packages, advanced engineering
and a new truck warranty–but without the cost.
Technical advancements. Besides a roomy,
well-appointed interior, you’ll get scores
of technical advancements that add up to
greater fuel efficiency, easier maintenance
and lower operating costs.
•
Tax savings. What’s more, a glider kit sold
and domiciled in the U.S.A. can give you
substantial tax savings. In many cases, an
owner using a glider kit to rebuild a vehicle
worn out by use or age or disabled from a
wreck, may be exempt from Federal Excise
Tax or FET (refer to IRS Revenue Ruling 91-27,
see www.IRS.gov or your tax adviser.)
•
Higher resale. A glider kit will also pay off in
the long haul with higher resale value.
We can do this because the Freightliner Glider Kit is a
complete assembly of the cab, front axle, wheels and
frame, plus all the Freightliner standard equipment
we are famous for, including ABS. Just combine the
power train components from your current vehicle
with a glider kit or opt for a new or remanufactured
engine. You’ll be in a brand new vehicle that’s exciting,
cost effective, modern and reliable. In fact, the glider
kit can save you even more by drastically reducing the
time, expense and hassle involved in refurbishing a
truck or repairing a wrecked vehicle.
In most cases, the cost is only 50-60 percent of that
of a new truck, including assembly. And with your
Freightliner dealer’s SpecPro software, specifying the
best is even faster and more economical.
A better bottom line is built right in.
Because today’s truck components are built to last,
keeping them on the road with a glider makes
better sense than ever. Whether you’re an individual
operator updating an older vehicle, a business owner
needing to make an application conversion, or the
manager of a large operation looking to standardize
your fleet, the Freightliner Glider Kit is a smart
business move. Here are just a few reasons why:
•
Driver satisfaction. If you’re a fleet owner
looking for ways to attract and keep good drivers,
Freightliner quality and luxurious interior comfort
options are very powerful driver incentives.
Step up in style.
Best of all, with the savings you enjoy by using
a Freightliner Glider Kit, you can afford a lot
more features and options than you might have
thought.
Freightliner is known for its complete family of
great-looking, hard-working trucks–from the
local delivery business class to the luxury overthe-road sleepers. Freightliner Glider Kits are
available as day cabs, or can be equipped with
optional flat, mid or raised roof integral sleeper
units–all with a wide array of interior choices and
driver-friendly options. Just select the Freightliner
Glider Kit that suits your needs.
Now is your chance to update your truck in style.
Whatever your personal tastes or application,
your dealer can spec the truck you’ve always
wanted, from paint to upholstery, in order to
create completely customized kits.
So complete, it’s like having our
engineers there to help.
Save hours of assembly time.
Freightliner offers one of the most complete glider kits on the
market. Thanks to the loose parts box that we supply with each
kit, you can be sure you have the parts you need for your
specific truck.
Our loose parts box contains over 160 parts included
as standard–from the power steering pump and
reservoir to wingnuts and wiring–that help make
Freightliner an excellent glider buy.
Kit contents are important when you’re comparing gliders. Don’t
be misled by the unassembled prices of other kits–many of their
included parts may require add-on components that you need to
gather yourself. By the time you obtain and install these omitted
items, your assembled cost can be far greater than the initial price.
With a Freightliner Glider Kit, a great deal of the work is already
taken care of for you. Our loose parts box contains such major
pieces as an A/C compressor with clutch, complete shift control
mechanism, and all chassis air brake valves. The result: you’ll need
fewer additional parts, and you’ll save hours in assembly.
Easy as 1-2-3.
Our assembly manual and documentation
are the best anywhere.
There’s no mystery about our kit prices. And because the kits
are so complete, there’s no mystery in assembling them, either.
The FLD Glider Kit includes our Technical
Instruction and Assembly Manual
featuring the latest technical data and is
specially engineered to make assembly
a snap. Other models, such as the
Columbia, Century, and Business Class,
will feature a Technical Instruction
and Assembly Manual on
computer disc as they
become available.
These tools will allow
you to get back on the
road earning revenue again in record
time, and running better and safer while doing it.
Make a power move.
With an optional remanufactured engine, you’ll gain
increased performance without having to do any
engine work. Count on it to slice vehicle downtime and
to boost fuel economy.
Have us install a MBE 900 in a M2, or a MBE 4000, a Cummins
ReCon,® Detroit Diesel Reliabilt® or Caterpillar® Reman engine at
the Freightliner factory, and you’ll save installation time and the
costs of an engine overhaul. Plus, a wide range of economical, fully
warranted remanufactured parts are available separately from
your dealer. Now, that’s the way to make your savings add up.
GLIDER FINANCING
Daimler Truck Financing (DTF) is pleased to offer glider
financing, at or near new truck rates, depending on content.
In many cases well documented value of
donor vehicle components may be applied to
the down payment. Consult your dealership’s
finance group for more details.
Ready. Set. Go.
Glider kits include the same superior driver control and
comfort factor with an electronic monitoring system,
suspended clutch pedal, quiet cab interior and powerful
heater/air conditioning system–all standard.
You can start enjoying the benefits of a glider conversion
practically right away. Even if you want your Freightliner
Glider Kit custom spec’d and engineered, it can be delivered
with minimal lead-times. Your Freightliner dealer will work
with you to ensure that you receive the exact glider kit
you need, and the type of financing that best fits your
particular requirements.
Replacement Cabs
If a complete glider kit is more
than your current needs require,
replacement cabs are also offered in
various levels. The most basic being

sheet metal, doors, and glass. Next,

This level of cab is built as close as
possible to your original vehicle’s specification. We also have
completely trimmed hoods, which are painted and come

individual purchase or in combination with a cab, these
hoods are made for you to simply bolt on and go. With all
these options, we are sure to have just what you need to
make repairs and get back on the road.
“A Freightliner Glider Kit is a very cost-efficient, viable
option to update equipment without having to buy a used
truck, where you don’t know what you’re getting. And, it’s
less expensive than new.”
Ed Bennett, President, D&K Truck Center
Keep downtime down. You’ll appreciate the time
savings that come from the glider kit’s ease of assembly,
whether you rely on your dealership, a body shop or
handle it yourself.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to Freightliner glider kit
features and amenities. Choose from expansive model
offerings including our luxurious sleepers in a wide
selection of heights and bunk options.
