After a few hurdles that Kustom Truck had to overcome, the Western Star glider kit truck model 4800 project is finally wrapped up and ready for delivery.  The C-12 Cat engine fitment went very smooth and provides plenty of power for the application.  In a feed truck application DPF and SCR have significant drawbacks, a engine REGEN takes valuable time away from what the truck is intended to do, Feed Cattle.  Having the ability through a glider chassis to install a pre 2002 EPA motor solves a major issue for dairy and cattlemen that want a truck mounted feed mixer truck.  For those that don’t understand EPA regulations, were talking an engine, turbo and exhaust.

Here are some photo’s of the completed project

A few interior pictures, with no need for a flashy interior a base model was chosen for this glider kit that will be used on the dairy

And finally some pictures of the Cat C-12 plumed into the Western Star 4800 Chassis

Thanks for following along as Kustom Truck built a current production 2012 Western Star Glider Kit Truck Model 4800 and fitted it with a 2000 EPA Caterpillar C-12 engine
