What is a Glider Kit?
•
•
•
A complete assembly of the cab, front axle, wheels, and frame.
Dealer will assemble the powertrain components and integrate the
powertrain with the glider.
Glider Kits are available in the following models: T800 Split Fender,
T660, and the W900L.
•
•
Compliance labels are not installed or shipped with the unit and must
be furnished by the final manufacturer during the certification process.
Before a completed glider kit may be driven on the road, the final assembler must certify the chassis to meet all applicable governmental
regulations, including, but not limited to: FMVSS, FMCSR, EPA, and
OSHA.
•
Kenworth does not collect FET on glider kits. FET is the responsibility
of the purchaser and may apply to your completed vehicle. Consult a
tax professional.
In general, FET will apply if you:
-- Use a glider kit to repair a wrecked vehicle, or change the transportation function (e.g., conversion of a truck chassis into a truck
tractor), or use the glider kit to restore a vehicle with restoration
costs exceeding a 75 percent threshold.
Warranty and Additional Information

The standard basic glider kit warranty is 1 year or 100,000 miles and
