NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --  Meritor® (NYSE:MTOR) announced today at the Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) 2016 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition that it is extending warranty coverage for its optional AxlePak7™ on-highway trailer wheel-ends to seven years.

Beginning this spring, fleets can specify AxlePak7 wheel-ends on their Meritor axles and suspensions, and enjoy seven-year Meritor warranty coverage on these components:

  • Hubs, bearings, seals, hubcaps and spindle nuts
  • Thru-tees and stators for Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS™) by P.S.I., when the MTIS option is selected in conjunction with AxlePak7
