Kenworth limited edition interior
Kenworth limited edition interior
Kenworth and Pendleton Woolen Mills have jointly produced a new cab and sleeper environment that features brown leather seats and door pads, a leather sofa bed with microfiber suede inserts, wood grain interior trim and wool fabric accents.
The Pendleton Limited Edition interior is available in the 86-inch AeroCab and 72-inch AeroCab AeroDyne sleepers for Kenworth’s W900 model. Driver and passenger seats boast patterned headrests along with new armrests that fold back and stow behind the seats for easier access to the sleeper. The interior also comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and can be ordered with the new Kenworth GPS Navigation system with MP3 player.
RACK AND PINION STEERING
Freightliner’s new rack and pinion steering system increases control and response. It is 45 pounds lighter than integral gear systems with spring suspensions, allowing for larger payloads. The system will be available on the Century Class S/T, Coronado, Columbia, Classic and Classic XL models.
The Glide Trac Series slide-away level-ride liftgate is designed to maximize trailer capacity by sliding under the trailer bed during storage. It requires no weld-on bed extension and can be used on 53-foot trailers. Features include two permanently mounted switches, spring-assisted platform folding, a perforated aluminum platform extension and a foldable step.
WALTCO TRUCK EQUIPMENT
H3R Performance’s HalGuard “clean agent” extinguishers are available in two sizes, a 1.4-pound, 1B:C rated model and a 2.5-pound, 2B:C rated model. The rechargeable red or chrome-plated cylinders leave no messy residue when discharged and conduct no electricity back to the operator.
Sta-Dry in-line, closed-end and step-down connectors join multiple wires to preserve a sealed electrical system. The color-coded tubing has an adhesive that seals among multiple wires, eliminating wire pullout.
In-line butt connectors join two wires into one wire, replacing temporary unsealed quick taps. Step-down connectors allow different wire gauges to be joined together. All sealed connectors are color-coded for easy installation.
SCREENS ALLOW VENTILATION
Breezeway truck window screens are pre-fit, adding security and allowing air to flow when air conditioning is not needed.

SIGNAL-STAT LED LAMPS
Truck-Lite’s Signal-Stat LED lamps require less electric current, extending alternator life and allowing more power for other parts of the truck.
The line includes 2-inch and 2.5-inch round beehive and 6-inch rectangular marker lamps, single- and double-face pedestal lamps, and rectangular stop, turn, tail and rear turn lamps. They retrofit via standard plug connectors and are less susceptible to shock and vibration.
STEER AXLE FAMILY
Dana Corp.’s D-2000F fully dressed steer axle family is available with 3.5- and 5-inch drop beams, providing the chassis and suspension profile height required by fire and rescue applications. Tie-rod geometry options improve tire life for a wide range of wheelbases and allow fit-up of popular wheels. The axle is compatible with both air disc and air drum brakes.
ROOFTOP AIR CONDITIONERS
DC Top-Cool’s 12- and 24-volt roof-mounted air conditioners put out as many as 12,000 BTUs per hour. They allow drivers to cool their sleepers without idling by using starting or auxiliary batteries. The self-contained unit is equipped with a battery monitor and control that prevents discharging below the voltage required to start the engine.
