DENTON, Tex. — It’s now easier to mount and install bodies on Peterbilt 330s thanks to a new body builders’ manual the company has introduced.

The new guide book, available also CD format, provides body builders and installers with key vehicle dimensions and guidelines for modifications, helping ensure the integrity of the chassis for Peterbilt’s customers.

“Peterbilt’s Model 330 is used in many diverse applications, thus requiring the installation of many different types of truck bodies — dry van, fire apparatus, mixer, beverage, mobile servicing and dump, to name a few,” says Dan Sobic, Peterbilt assistant general manager. “When the guidelines are followed correctly, it will minimize the need for modifications and help keep the vehicle’s warranty intact.”

The manual covers both single- and tandem-axle configurations of the
Class 6 and 7 Model 330.
