Modifications
Not all step van dealers are equipped and able to handle modifications. Dealers like MAG Trucks has an in-house fabrication department that performs the modifications bringing the used trucks up to linen, uniform or delivery ISP standards. Every used (ISP certified) step van leaves MAG’s manufacturing floor with a compliant [white] paint job, bulkhead with a lockable sliding door, a new backup camera, option for graphic installation, proper shelving, enforcer lock, safety kit, fire extinguisher, black bumpers, and much more. MAG has sold over 1,000+ used trucks to ISP contractors over the past ten years. What do you need on your step van?

Budget
Used step vans can be a much more budget-friendly option, as prices range between $20,000 – $45,000 instead of the new Ford or Freightliner price of $50,000 – $75,000. MAG’s custom multi-step refurbishment and upfitting process ensures the entire vehicle is brought up to ISP standards.

Warranty

MAG Trucks prides itself on its workmanship but knows things can happen unexpectantly. Every MAG used or reconditioned truck leaves the Kansas City facility equipped with a six-month or 6,000-mile nationwide limited engine and drivetrain warranty. 

The MAG Trucks warranty encompasses 8 major components, including the engine, transmission, drive axle, water pump, turbo/supercharge, seals and gaskets, fuel tank, and radiator. Let’s take a closer look at What’s in an ISP Contractor Truck Warranty specific to MAG Trucks…

1. Engine

MAG covers all internally lubricated parts of an engine in our 6-month, 6,000 mile warranty.  Internally lubricated parts include: pistons, piston rings, piston pins, crankshaft and main bearings, connecting rods and bearings, camshaft and bearings, timing chain or belt, timing gears, intake and exhaust valves, valve springs, valve guides, oil pump, push rods, rocker arms, rocker arm shafts, hydraulic and solid lifters. The engine block and heads are also covered if the damage is caused by a failure of any of the above-covered components.

2. Transmission

Internal transmission parts include a torque converter, vacuum modulator, and mounts. The transmission housing is also covered if the damage is caused by a failure of any of the above-covered items. If applicable, this warranty does not include clutch assembly, pressure plate, flywheel, throw out bearing, worn synchronizers, cables or electrical items. All internal parts of the transmission are covered under a MAG Trucks warranty.

3. Drive Axle

The drive axle is split into two parts which connect to the wheel and allows your truck to move freely.  Axles also allow the wheels to turn when driving creating a smooth ride. All internally lubricated parts covered by our warranty are contained within the housings and include the axle shafts, differential housing, transaxle housing and final drive housing.

4. Water Pump

Water pumps allow the coolant to flow through the engine straight to the radiator.  Impeller shafts, bearings, bushings, and housing are all under MAG’s warranty.

5. Turbo/Supercharger

A turbocharger works to fuel the trucks and increase its efficiency.  It is under the hood of the truck, compressing air to the combustion chamber. All internal parts of a turbocharger such as vanes, shafts, and bearings are covered by our warranty.  The Turbo/Supercharger housing is also covered if the damage is caused by a failure of any covered component.

6. Seals and Gaskets

Seals and gaskets work to prevent leakage within the vehicle. They work to fill the in-between spaces. These are primary parts of trucks that work tirelessly to keep it in shape. Seals and gaskets are replaced as part of repair or replacement of the above-covered components.

7. Fuel Tank

The fuel tank is designed to hold and disperse fuel throughout the truck. The fuel tank is covered under warranty for leaks to ensure you don’t have any costly fuel leaks no matter where you’re driving.

8. Radiator

The radiator is your engine’s cooling system – which is critical to your continued operation. The radiator is covered for failures due to leaks.
