BUILDING KENWORTH GLIDER KITS JUST BECAME EASIER
Kenworth Glider Kit Engine Installation Harnesses now available from Kustom Truck
Kenworth Glider Kit Assembly parts kits now available from Kustom Truck
Kustom Harness is proud to introduce a line of engine control harnesses and assembly parts kits for application in Paccar glider kit trucks. These engine control harnesses and assembly parts kits were engineered, proto-typed, and developed for installation of a PRE-EMISSION Caterpillar, Cummins, or Detroit Engine into the current production Peterbilt and Kenworth glider kit trucks. The Kustom glider kit harnesses allow for a true plug and play electronic engine installation into the OEM chassis with no dash interface, harness modifications, or workarounds required. For applications that use a Caterpillar ADEM 2 (40 Pin), Cummins Celect +, and Detroit DDEC3/4/5 electronic engines also require a Kustom Processor Unit in addition to the engine control harness.
The development of the Kustom glider kit harnesses and Glider assembly parts kits are the result of 15 years of building gliders kit trucks, performing engine swaps between the different engine families, and engine upgrades from mechanical to electronic engines in older trucks. This experience exposed the need for an OEM quality electronic engine interface harness that would allow customers to efficiently install the engine of their choice into a glider kit while ensuring the reliability, serviceability, and quality of the glider kit truck.
All of the harnesses were designed with service and support after sale in mind, even down to the fine details such as the OEM circuit numbers on the individual wires. The result is a more efficient build, a product that is easier to support after sale through the OEM dealer network, and an overall higher quality end product out the door.
