Mack Trucks Inc. has introduced the DayCab Conversion Kit, a retrofit kit that readily converts its sleepers into day cabs.

Designed for use on all of the company’s Vision models, as well as its CH walk-throughs, the kit allows a truck originally used for long or regional haul applications to have a highly productive second life as a local hauler.

"The ability to convert sleepers into day cabs gives dealers an opportunity to sell more trucks, it gives customers that need to resell or trade their vehicles an even more valuable commodity, and it gives those looking for a previously owned vehicle additional options," said Kevin Flaherty, senior vp, sales.

The kit, available through any Mack dealer, consists of three components: a welded subassembly, or structural kit, which is essentially a new rear wall for the cab complete with “bolt on” reinforcements; a suspension kit; and an interior trim kit.
