Over the years big rig truck owners have been driven to find ways to move loads more efficiently with less down time.  That's part of what has made Kenworth's T2000 Class 8 trucks so popular.  This big diesel truck was designed to have a low aerodynamic drag using advanced lightweight composite materials for fuel savings over other older models.  Kenworth's focus on efficiency, low maintenance and quality has lead to the large number of T2000 diesel trucks on the road today.

In an effort to help diesel truck and RV owners be more efficient, K&N has released a new washable heavy duty air filter, part 38-2018S.  This filter fits several class 8 trucks including some Kenworth T2000 and Peterbuilt Truck models.  The 38-2018S filter is designed to increase horsepower while providing outstanding filtration.  This washable and reusable air filter is manufactured from quality components and backed by K&N's Heavy Duty Air Filter 3-year/300,000 Mile Limited Warranty. The days of buying disposable air filters over and over just to throw them away are gone.

K&N's 38-2018S is a standard flow air filter, meaning the air flows from outside the air filter to the inside. It's low restriction filtering material does not require oil like most other K&N air filters.  No oil equates to less time spent servicing the air filter.

The 38-2018S air filter is made with thick urethane seals, heavy duty wire mesh for structural support, and durable air filter material for long life. One awesome feature to this air filter is the handle on the top of the filter for easy installation and removal during cleanings. Cleaning is simple and fast with K&N's 99-0638 Synthetic Filter cleaning solution. You may also use a pressure washer and compressed air on their lowest settings. While the 38-2018S filter is known to fit on some Kenworth T2000 and Peterbuilt Trucks, the best way for diesel rig drivers and operators to find the right K&N air filter for their truck is to use K&N's Cross Reference Search with the existing air filter part number.
