    Glider Kits Allow For Powertrain Customization and Cost Savings

    A glider kit is a unique opportunity for those who need a heavy-duty truck but want more control over the specific powertrain that they want in the truck. The phrase "glider kit" comes from the notion that an airplane without an engine is essentially a glider. These units give the prospective owner the ability to install components such an engine, transmission, and rear end gears in the manner they see fit. Have a preference for Cummins diesel motors over other brands? A glider kit will allow you to fit a variety of diesel motor choices -- as well as transmission choices that can provide a significant performance and economy boost to your rig. Your choice of rear end components and rear end gears is an essential decision for your glider kit, as it generally translates to the overall capacity of the tractor trailer.
