Kenworth T370 Adds Front Frame Assembly Option for Customer-Installed Winch Bumpers
KIRKLAND, Wash., December 27, 2012 - Kenworth has introduced a new, heavy-duty front frame assembly option for its Kenworth T370 medium duty truck that makes it easy for body builders to install customer winch bumpers.
The new Kenworth T370 option 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.
