      Thanks for your interested in a 389 Glider with a Detroit similar to the RB trucks. I would recommend our 14.0 Liter DDEC 4 Pre-02 re-man Detroit as an option. This engine provides the excellent fuel economy, proven reliability and optimum performance. These engines come complete from the Detroit re-man center and are available in two calibrations: 550HP@ 1850 torque or 575@1850 torque.

      The following is an “estimate” of how a truck similar to the RB truck with a DDEC4 and Fuller RTLO-18918B would come out:

      • Estimated cost of a Tandem drive“rolling glider Kit” that would be complete with cab, sleeper, all electrical, plumbing, axles, tires, fifth wheel, etc. In other words a new factory truck with the exception of there would be no engine, no transmission, or interface of the engine and transmission into the chassis – $85K-$90K
      • Estimated cost of engine, transmission and all assembly parts-, would be the pre-emission or pre-2002 EPA DDEC4 Detroit in 550 or 575HP calibration – $60K-$65K
      • Estimated cost for Assembly labor and misc assembly parts – $20K-$25K
      • Custom options, headboards, bumpers, lights, etc $TBD

      Total cost – $165K-180K

      Shipping/brokerage/ and Canadian taxes ( approx 6% in non-PST provinces up to 15% in highest PST provinces )

      Hopefully this helps. If you would like to look further at this option, please contact me with any further question. We can help by providing you with a package for the “do it your selfer” of a complete out the door unit as profiled above. Kustom is a Cat, Cummins, Detroit, Eaton Fuller, and Allison OEM with all supplied components carry warranty serial # specific in the purchasers name through any authorized OEM dealer or distributor in N. America that are comparable to the engine and transmission warranty that would come with a new factory truck.

    I have 26 SA 2002 FLD tractors with Pre emission Detroit engines. Run every day want to sell whole truck or engines who do I call??

  3. kylebolt says:

    Not to much highway haulers around this area, Detroits are becoming very popular around here though, you could try a auction with that many trucks

  4. Hal Hicks says:

    Actually I have more 9 more to be exact. These are in various stages of repair. Engines are good though
