The new Freightliner Cascadia parts continue to trickle in! This month, we have new dash accessories and some exciting LED lights!
Freightliner Cascadia chrome plastic blank switch plug – PAIR – $8.99
These switch plugs take the place of your existing blanks, so they don’t have to stand out amongst all of your chrome-covered switches anymore!
Freightliner Cascadia Amber 6 diode LED cab light – $14.99
Freightliner Cascadia Amber 6 diode LED cab light – CLEAR lens – $14.99
These LED cab lights are a perfect replacement for your stock lights. In the past, we’ve been able to add LEDs to the Cascadia visor, but it did require some modifications. No longer!
We’ve just been tickled to death by how many Volvo dash pieces have been popping up lately. Regardless of what any old fogie tells you, today’s drivers know that a Volvo can be a great looking truck, you just have to know where to look for the parts. Empire Chrome stocks more Volvo chrome than any other chrome shop!
Today’s offerings are a couple of switch handle covers. Both of these take seconds to install. Each is a two piece kit (front and back) that snaps over the existing handle, and they include double-stick tape for extra hold.
Volvo chrome plastic turn signal switch cover – $9.99
Volvo chrome plastic wiper switch cover – $9.99
For quite some time now, we’ve had chrome rocker switch covers available from Rockwood, but they’re more expensive than a lot of our customers would like.
Finally, we have a cheaper alternative, plus they’ve got jewels!
Peterbilt 2006+ chrome plastic replacement rocker switch w/blue jewel – $4.95 each
Peterbilt 2006+ chrome plastic replacement rocker switch w/red jewel – $4.95 each
Available labels include: ABS Off Road, ATC, Floor Light, Fuel Heat, Load Light, Rear A/C
Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas! Canadian folks, enjoy your Boxing Day. Those of us stateside aren’t lucky enough to have such a wonderful day set aside for the cleaning up of holiday decorations.
We’re going to wrap up this year with a few posts about new items, including these great new Volvo pieces! Volvo dash chrome is one of our fastest growing parts of the store, so we’re bringing in new parts as quickly as the manufacturers can make them.
Volvo chrome plastic rocker switch cover w/cutout – SINGLE – $2.99 each
The first week we brought these switch covers in, we sold out in a matter of hours. You know something’s good when it flies out before the ink dries on the price tag! They install instantly – just snap them over your existing switches.
Volvo VN/VNL 2003+ replacement DRL/fog light assembly w/wire harness – $110 each
These replacement fog lights match the style of your originals, making them ideal for both chrome enthusiasts and fleets.
Volvo chrome plastic fairing release handle trim – SINGLE – $6.99 each
These handle covers are small, but sometimes all it takes to really push a truck across the line from “meh” to “WOW” is a little attention to detail.
Volvo chrome plastic trailer brake handle cover – $9.95
Our final featured Volvo piece of the year is this curvy trailer brake handle cover. This is definitely the most unique trailer brake handle in modern trucks. It’s much better than the older styles, as this ergodynamic shape is easier to handle. The chrome cover looks beautiful, particularly if you have several of our stainless steel dash panels behind it.
The gauges in many newer trucks have smaller labels. You can use the half or 1/3 moon style gauge emblems, but many of our customers have repeatedly requested smaller gauge emblems that don’t cover up as much of the gauge.
Rockwood has been kind enough to oblige us with these new gauge emblems. They have all of the classic, luxury features you have come to expect from the US-based truck parts manufacturer, but the smaller size you need to make your dash look its best.
These 1/4 moon style gauge emblems are available for Peterbilt, Kenworth, and Freightliner trucks. Gauge names include:
Amps, Air Applied PSI, Air Cleaner, Air PSI, Air Suspension, Air Supply, Brake Saver PSI, Front Driver Temp, Rear Driver Temp, Engine Oil Temp, Exhaust Temp, Fuel, Fuel Filter, Front Tank, H2O, Fuel PSI, and more!
Rockwood Peterbilt engraved stainless steel 1/4 moon gauge emblem – SOLD EACH – $3.99
Rockwood Freightliner/Kenworth engraved stainless steel 1/4 moon gauge emblem – SOLD EACH – $3.99
For a long time, the T2000 has been treated like the red-headed stepchild of the Kenworth family. People have mocked it, saying, “oh sure, it’s a great fleet truck. But you can’t put chrome on it.”
Here at Empire Chrome, we’ve decided that approach isn’t good enough anymore. We commissioned these stainless steel dash panel trims to prove to the world that the T2000 can look as great as it hauls! This set covers all the major gauge panels on your dash.

H4 to 9007 headlight bulb conversion plug – SINGLE – $8.99
If you’ve got H4 bulbs in your headlamps now, but you want to replace them with our new 9007s, this plug makes it extra simple.
I’m gonna go ahead and declare that March was the Official Freightliner Century/Columbia Drivers Month. We sold more chrome for Centuries and Columbias than most of the other trucks combined. We know that several of our customers started the month with an ugly dash and ended it with one that was definitely lookin’ right! If you’ve been needing a guide on how to make your dash look amazing, here’s a good start.
Chrome plastic rocker switch trim for Freightliner, Kenworth, or Peterbilt – no jewel, 3/PACK – $4.99
These switch surrounds are a great addition to any dash. They’re cheap enough, but they still provide a good punch of chrome and shine.
Freightliner Century/Columbia/Coronado chrome plastic mirror switch bezel – $3.99
Freightliner Century/Columbia chrome plastic power window switch bezel – driver’s side – $3.09
The Century and Columbia dash has some special switches, including these for the mirror and power window controls. We’ve found that most customers tend to buy these together – so you probably don’t want to get just one or you’ll end up regretting it!
Freightliner Century/Columbia chrome plastic center dash column – $8.99
Just like the name says, this chrome panel fits right in the center of your dash. You can use it as a kind of centerpiece for your chrome dashscape!
Of course we carry hundreds of pieces for the Freightliner Century and Columbia dashes, but these are the ones that really flew off of the shelves this month. What truck will be most popular in April? It’s always fun to see!
