Program Summary

The Meritor Carrier Exchange Program

increases flexibility to sell trucks from dealer

stock. This program enables dealers to simply and

conveniently exchange Meritor carriers or

upgrade axles to include differential lock and/or a

pressurized lube system (oil pump and filter) on

stock trucks.

Several important benefits of the program are

·       Axle ratio flexibility to help eliminate potential

     lost sales;

·       Opportunity to upgrade and add driver-controlled

     differential lock (DCDL), a pressurized

     lube system, and/or aluminum carrier, where


·       Rapid response to customer ratio requirements;

·       Reduced paperwork; and

·       Full warranty on the exchanged carrier.

The program reduces and simplifies work.

Meritor ships to dealers a complete carrier,

less driveline yoke, ready to install. This helps to

significantly reduce installation time and expense.
