Western Star Introduces Day Cab Conversion Kit for Stratosphere Sleepers

DALLAS – Aug. 21, 2008 – Western Star Truck Sales, Inc., today announced the availability of a new day cab conversion kit that allows Western Star truck owners to convert their Stratosphere® sleepers into day cabs while maintaining the trucks’ distinctive look.

Designed to convert any Stratosphere sleeper, the kit gives trucks a second life in a completely different configuration.

Included in each day cab conversion kit is a new overhead console, new roof cap with reinforcements, new headliner, new back wall and trim panel, new cantrails and new glass for the rear window. The fit and finish of the materials included in the kit, as well as all trim components are engineered to provide the same high-quality look, feel and performance as an original, factory-built Western Star day cab.

“Stratosphere sleeper owners are loyal to their trucks, so we wanted to make the trucks even more versatile,” said Rich Shearing, manager of product strategy, Western Star. “Now owners can enjoy their trucks for new uses, or take advantage of the increased resale value that converting the trucks can provide.”

The day cab conversion kit will soon be available to order at any Western Star dealer.
