New and Used Inventory
We have an extensive new and used inventory for your company’s transportation needs. Each of our on-highway trucks can help you maximize your time and budget by hauling your freight to and from each job site. We carry a variety of manufacturers including: Caterpillar, Freightliner, International, Kenworth, Mack, Peterbilt, Volvo, Western Star and more
Our used inventory yields long-term value while helping you stay within your budget. Our stock is regularly changing, allowing you to find the truck model you’re looking for with the right mileage, certification, and price. Some of our trucks have 200 miles or fewer when you drive them off the lot.
Thompson Truck Centers offers Peterbilt, Kenworth, and Western Star glider kits. Some competitors start with a Caterpillar Platinum Overhaul Kit or an aftermarket overhaul kit, which generally contains 30 basic line items that can include a cylinder head, cylinder packs, rod and main bearings, water pump, oil pump, and perhaps injectors as major components and replacing any additional items if necessary. Generally this type of overhaul is called an “in-frame” overhaul and not all the gears and gaskets or seals are inspected or replaced.
The Thompson process of overhauling the engine differs and consists of using a Caterpillar Platinum Overhaul Kit, which consists of 30 basic line items, PLUS an additional 217 line items including reman air compressor, turbocharger, exhaust brake tune up, flywheel, fuel transfer pump and engine wiring harnesses. We replace these items on every Thompson overhauled Glider engine.
Your Thompson glider kit engine coverage consists of four years/unlimited mileage OPT (Overhaul Protection for Truck engines) backed by Caterpillar Insurance. OPT covers injectors, turbo, water pump and air compressor and an extensive list of parts that are inspected and/or replaced in accordance with Caterpillar’s published guidelines.
