    I've been learning a lot about the so-called "medium-duty" Kodiak truck line lately.

    Who drives a big Kodiak truck? Those are 4500 - 8500 trucks for the rest of everyone.

    I've been learning a lot about them lately. The entire platform is extremely versiting from the 4500 to the 8500, they can appear in all shapes and sizes from flatbed trucks to delivery vans to tow trucks to ambulances.

    I own a 2003 Chevy C4500, Love the truck, Haul's great, right now it's currently my daily driver, I'm currently trying to find I guess it would be aftermarket parts and what not for it and not having that easy of a time at it, I know like K&N doesn't make an air filter for it and stuff like that, but trying to find differant things for it isn't the easiest, any ideas were to look?

    I'm new to the site and am in the process of buying this 2002 Chevy Kodiak C8500. The only problem with it is the damage to this fiberglass fender on the passenger side. There may also be damage to the hood. Is the broken part a separate piece from the hood? And is it readily available?

    If memory serves me well, and it doesnt very often, the fender is all one piece and fenders used to be available and fairly inexpensive.
    Thee are also fab shops that will rebuild to new. Just gotta find one close. I used to send out pieces to a local body shop and they came back better than original. Of course they took there time to buff and sand till the glass was like ice, All our wrecked class 8's that had fiberglass were sent to the body shop at 1/3 the cost of dealer parts and service.
