CLEAN BACK OF THE CAB
Makes it easy to add the body you want with no oddly placed stacks or brackets to get in the way and flexible exhaust options help to save as much as a foot of chassis length.
THIRD POWER DISTRIBUTION MODULE
Incorporates a circuit board design for higher power capacity, allowing for more switches and controls. Conveniently located in place of the glovebox, providing more space between the seats.
MULTIPLE PTO OPTIONS
Front or rear engine PTO available with optional rear-mounted PTO on the Detroit™ DT12® for stationary applications. SAE PTO options for Eaton and Allison transmissions are also available as provision only.
UPDATED INSTRUMENT CLUSTER
Gauges that provide more information to the driver in intuitive format. A multi-function LCD readout that delivers the data and alerts your driver wants to see most
SINGLE-CHANNEL FRAME RAILS
Lightweight solution rated at 3.2M RBM. Factory custom-drilled for your application for added strength and faster upfit. Single-channel construction resists corrosion.
BODY-BUILDER FRIENDLY POWER & GROUND ACCESS
Adds interface points throughout the vehicle for ground interfacing. Adds heavy power interface to the front wall. Can be pre-wired between the seats. Offers ease of power access.
Durable surfaces that are easy to clean. Deep storage pockets for easy access. Strong handholds to help you get in and out safely.
CUSTOMER INTERFACE CONNECTION (CIC)
Standardized, connector-based interface. Reduces upfit time. Allows for ease of finding a circuit/feature. Located between the seat and the back wall.
ADJUSTABLE STEERING COLUMN
Full range of motion for increased driver comfort. Left side: Turn signal with integrated wiper. Right side: Easy-to-use transmission and engine brake control stalk (pictured).
THREADED SPRING PINS
Greaseable threads prevent spring from moving side to side within the shackle. Our exclusive design threads the pins directly into the spring bushing providing much more stability, improved feel and overall handling.
4700 OUTBOARD CAB MOUNTS
Placed as wide as possible to maximize lateral stability. Provides a more comfortable ride on rough terrain and reduces body roll in turns.
THE LARGEST DOOR OPENINGS
...that make it easier and safer to get in and out of the truck.
FORGED STEEL DOOR HINGES
Internally mounted protection from the elements. Greater durability to prevent sagging -- a common problem with piano hinges.
DOUBLE DOOR SEALS
Both the door and the cab have a weather seal that covers its perimeter. This double seal helps maximize the efficiency of our HVAC systems and provides a quieter ride.
GRADE 8 FRAME FASTENERS
Grade 8 fasteners allow for optional equipment to be installed on the frame, and retorqued in the field as needed.
WIRING STAND OFFS
Our wiring and air bundles are supported off the frame rail. This allows debris to pass behind the bundle, eliminating the possibility of abrasion which can lead to electrical and air failures.
LASER-ETCHED CHASSIS WIRING
Laser etching and color coding ensures ability to troubleshoot wiring issues for the life of the truck.
CAB INSULATION AND SOUNDPROOFING
Barium insulation is placed between the double walled steel cab. This increases the thermal and acoustic insulation of the truck. Our floor pads are thick which further improves the quiet ride of a Western Star.
IN-CAB BLOWER MOTOR
Protected in the cab rather than being on the firewall and exposed to elements.
MARINE-GRADE ROCKER SWITCHES
Large waterproof switches are easy to operate with gloves on and are protected from water and salt which can create shorts.
Suspended brake, clutch and accelerator pedals are easy to clean, and prevent objects from becoming lodged behind pedals -- a great safety feature.
POWER DISTRIBUTION MODULES
The PDM and fuses are easily accessed by removing a panel on the passenger side dash. This allows you to sit comfortably in the cab when working on fuses rather than accessing them in an exterior location.
We put our body builder interface connector and transmission control unit in the cab and out of the elements. You'll find a bolt-in pass-through plate in the cab floor to eliminate unnecessary drilling, and a dedicated floor channel with an easy-to-remove top that provides plenty of room for you to run your own wiring.
Provides quick access to wiring for service.
NODAL ENGINE MOUNTING
Our power units are mounted on clutch housing instead of fly wheel housing which supports the power unit closer to the output shaft of the transmission where the torque is greater. This results in less frame flex and a better ride.
