Kenworth has introduced a new, heavy-duty front frame assembly option for its Kenworth T370 medium duty truck that includes durable Austempered ductile iron (ADI) cast front drive brackets, 3/8-inch thick steel front adapters, enhanced radiator crossmember assembly brackets, and C-channel front frame sections that can accept a winch bumper.
The bumper adapters can be used with other specialty bumpers commonly installed on utility, overhead automobile haulers, and fire and emergency vehicles.
Rams Horn tow hooks are provided for vehicle transport. The T370 must be specified with front springs rated at 13,200 lbs. or more, and may be ordered with either a front or non-front drive axle.
The new assembly makes it easier for body builders to install customer winch bumpers.
