glider-chasisStep 1 - Choose Your Favorite Chasis Model

Choosing your chassis is the first step in creating your glider kit truck. You want to start with the chassis that meets your requirements in terms of performance, size, comfort and safety. For many customers, the look of the chassis model is also important — it helps convey the right brand image.

We'll connect you with experienced manufacturer representatives from any brand — Peterbilt, Freightliner, Kenworth and Western Star — to make ordering the brand and style chassis you want easy. Your chassis can be delivered directly to any one of our Cleveland Brothers full truck service locations to make assembly quick and uncomplicated.

glider-power-plantStep 2 - Choose a powerplant

With Cleveland Brothers glider kit service, you can choose the engine you want and eliminate unwanted maintenance costs. Select from one of our in-house rebuilt engines with a 4-year/unlimited mileage coverage or a Cat® Reman Engine. If we don’t have the one you want, our expert technicians can build one from the block up, allowing you to have the perfect engine suited to your chassis. 

Many customers have found newer engines to be costly to maintain, and even more costly to overhaul. With our glider kit service, you can choose the engine you want and eliminate unwanted maintenance costs. If you want the lowest lifetime owning and operating costs in the industry, our glider kit solutions are for you.


glider-transmissionStep 3: Choose an automatic or manual transmission

Whether it's a CAT, Eaton or Allison transmission, we can help you determine the best option for your powertrain.

Couple your transmission to a custom fabricated, balanced, and smoothed driveshaft to put the horsepower to the road.

These modern transmissions can help give you a real fuel economy advantage, especially over long hauls. We can suggest excellent, economical options that give you the best mix of performance, reliability and fuel savings.  


glider-accesoriesStep 4: Choose your accessories

We will assemble the cleanest looking engine bay you've ever seen with hose and wire tucking and easy-to-access grease points and filter. All come standard.

You can choose to stay true to OEM if you just need your engine to work hard or add stainless steel, polished aluminum or custom painted tubing if you want to show it off. These trucks may be made for hauling and working, but that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a clean, attractive look to the engine bay components and layout.

A standard full 5" turbo back exhaust is included to optimize performance over some OEM's 4" exhaust.


glider-assemblyStep 5: Assembly

Cleveland Brothers will assemble your custom truck the way you want it.

We take pride in our skilled technicians and quality craftsmanship, so you can est assured we will deliver a truck that will not disappoint. Our reputation rides around with you everywhere you go — which is why we build all of our glider kit trucks as if we will be driving them ourselves! We're not happy until you're satisfied with the final product.
