Looking for accessories for rd dump truck

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 1994 RD flexible flyer tandem dump and i am looking for some parts to spruce it up like chrome air cleaner straps new bumper steel or chrome, chrome hood latches, battery box cover, 5" chrome stack, and a chrome grille but i am having a hard time finding these things, is it best to just go to mack for these parts, Im trying to not spend to much money being the truck isnt a show piece,

I got my chrome air cleaner straps directly from Mack

You can get an air cleaner top cover from Peterbilt if you want

I have been buying mainly universal things to spruce my 1991 rd up. Chrome vinyl is a cheap way to chrome harder to come by parts. But things like switching lights to led and using chrome bezels where ever you can make a good appearance. New Mudflaps and weights behind the front axle and in front of the front drive axle hanging off the box would look good to...I also use nut covers where ever I can too. I so found on the interior that Peterbilt gauge covers with a dab of clear silicone and toggle extensions and I think it was Peterbilt swich id plate bezels fit too. And a can of paint on the dash and cab plastics dresses thing up nice for cheap too. And if your not in the paver all the time i think it looks good to add center flaps ( or one big 48" wide piece of old cleaned up quarry conveyor belt like I did before I started Paving alot ) but you have to fabricate up a mount then.

get on PAI https://www.paiindustries.com/and look through the online catalogs they have some chrome stuff.

You can look up a dealer and have them order it for you.

Here is what I did with mine. United pacific had the gauge bezel. It required trimming them down and adding silicone. I have mack carpeted floor mats too

That's a real clean truck you have there, I bought a nice R model cab out in PA when I went to Gearharts. its a 96 RD cab with 157000 miles, looks like brand new inside and out.
