Phillips Industries releases X-Tend day cab tracker bar extension

Phillips Industries has released a new X-Tend day cab tracker bar extension for tractor model applications with back windows.

The company says the X-Tend’s design prevents damage and decreases driver distraction from cables banging up against the back of the cab by extending them out an additional 8 in. from the tracker bar.

The X-Tend day cab tracker bar extension uses the same concept and design as the original, except with an increased length support bar that allows the support bracket to rest lower, below a window. The company notes that it does not require any mounting hardware.

Two sizing options are available for use with either a ¾- or 1-in. diameter tracker bar. The X-Tend day cab offers durability and corrosion resistance with a non-corrosive mounting and support bracket and stainless-steel metal tubing and eye hook. Soft cushion foam padding on the back of the nylon support bracket prevents damage when rested against the cab’s metal surface, Phillips says.
