Used Glider Kit Trucks for Sale

With latest and up to date safety features combined with the reliability of the past, a glider kit is an ultimate way for truck owners and small fleets to put highly sought after components into an updated chassis. In the trucking world, glider kits are extremely popular amongst small fleet owners, long distance truckers, and freight transportation company owners. If you are on the market for any used trucks, the value of a “Glider Kit” cannot be overlooked.

What are Glider kit trucks?

Glider kits are brand new commercial trucks that were purchased from the factory but without the engine or powertrain. A glider kit has a new cab, chassis, and axles, except the engine can be chosen from a selection of remanufactured brands. In simple terms, glider kits have everything new, except the engine. 


A key reason why many owner operator businesses in the trucking industry prefer glider kits is that one can have a pre ELD or pre-emission engine. This is due to the fact that the ELD laws are applicable to the engine year and not the year in which the model was built. For example, a glider kit used truck with a 2019 body coupled with a 1997 engine, the ELD mandate would not be applicable for you. To be certain, check your state laws regarding ELD mandates.
