Built to explore, this short tall 2006 Sprinter (Merc badging throughout) is in near perfect condition. You don't find them like this anywhere period! 83000 miles used as a personal vehicle it's whole life and never used as a commercial fleet vehicle. Always serviced well before factory recommended. Mercedes calls for oil changes at 10K I've always done it at 6K. This, IMO is the last and best year for the Sprinter Van. This is the last year for the inline 5 cylinder motor. Great gas mileage and (weld the hood closed) reliability. If you're currently looking for one of these you'll likely notice that these are generally beat up and have well over 150k on them. This is also the last year for the true European high roof styling. The newer ones look like a dodge truck lol.
Recent motor oil, transmission oil, radiator, differential oil, and brake/clutch flush and service. All turbo hoses have been upgraded to current improved versions, upgraded aluminum turbo resonator, RSN bypass upgrade. I have been working on this rig for several years while using it for occasional mountain bike trips ect. As of right now it has a full length stainless steel roof rack (designed for two solar panels to fit side by side), with ladder and light bar, swing away spare tire and 4 bike rack all custom built by Luftkraft fabrication (my performance automotive focused shop in COS). Both front seats swivel 360 deg. And there is a fold down table that seats 4 between the two front seats and the rear bench. The rear bench pulls out in seconds with the flip of two levers.
Goodyear duratrac tires all the way around including spare have about 6k on them. Hella black magic pencil beam rack mounted lights (brand new and not hooked up yet but complete with wiring harness). Aluminum aircraft track installed along both sides of the upper walls with several different fittings. Bed and platform cubbies all custom built by LK Fab need to be seen to understand the design, vision and quality. The bed has wool tweed covers over 8" memory foam. The bed is arranged to sleep two people sideways, I'm 5' 10" tall and can stretch out completely. Someone 6' would probably have their feet touching the wall. The bed platforms are set up to house two deep cell rechargeable batteries, charge controller, and the Webasto diesel heater. There is also built in storage in one of the platforms
All powdercoating and paint work i.e. body corners, swing rack, wheels, center caps ect. All done at the highest level by Spectrum Powderworks using only he best materials. Body corners are professionaly coated with Procoat. Procoat is kind of like bed liner but not as textured, its a true two part and catylized coating so it actually tougher than other commercial bed liners, plus it looks much nicer. The Luftkraft logo on the front upper roof is a decal and will be removed before sale. Several other parts could be included in the deal depending on what you want to do with he truck. I have a diesel Webaso solidstate gas heater complete kit new in box ready to install, I paid $1500. Also have a really nice marine speaker kit NIB cost $200.
So what is left to do to have the ultimate expedition sprinter truck? The gas heater needs to be installed and the solar system needs to be finished. There is also the possibility if desired to have Luftkraft fabrication finish the complete camper kit as I know exactly what it needs to be finished.
Oh yeah, almost forgot he flooring. It's all Armstrong industrial. Super tough, yet stylish.
There really is too much to list...the pictures tell the story. Call with questions. Mark 719 650-7187

It happens every year. We bid adieu to some cars and trucks that will be missed, and say good riddance to others wondering how they stayed around so long. Whether they're being killed off for slow sales or due to a new product coming along to replace them, the list of vehicles being discontinued after 2012 is surprisingly long and diverse.

CNN Money has compiled a list of departing vehicles, to which we've added a few more of our own. In the slow sales column, cars like the Lexus HS 250h, Mercedes-Benz R-Class and the full Maybach lineup appear, while the Ford Escape Hybrid, Mazda CX-7 and Hyundai Veracruz are all having their gaps filled with more modern and more fuel-efficient alternatives. Obvious exceptions to the rule include models that still sell in decent numbers like the Jeep Liberty and the Chrysler Town & Country (which will eventually be replaced by a crossover-like vehicle).
Check out our gallery of discontinued cars above, then scroll down for more information.
The Las Vegas Convention Center has plenty of space for aftermarket companies and automakers to show off their wares, and it looks like Chrysler is taking advantage of the spacious floor plan. At next month's SEMA Show, Chrysler will have a full 20 cars from its six brands decked out with Mopar gear.

As a hint of what is to come, Chrysler released a handful of teaser sketches showing glimpses of modified Jeep Cherokee, Ram 1500, Fiat 500L and Chrysler 300 concept vehicles. The automaker will also use the venue to show off a new line of Jeep Performance Parts offered by the all-new Mopar Off-Road Division. In addition to the images, Chrysler also issued a brief press release - posted below - breaking down some of the "industry-first features" that Mopar has offered in recent years.
The Viper is used to being the most powerful car in the Dodge and SRT stables, but the arrival of the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat means that's no longer the case. The serpentine supercar is, however, reportedly getting a small boost in output for 2015, amounting to all of five horsepower.
The increase was uncovered by Road & Track courtesy of the SAE J1349 certification process to which Detroit's Big Three automakers submit themselves and which reports the Viper's output at 645 hp instead of the 640 it was rated at until now. There are a hundred factors that could have contributed to the relatively mild boost in output (best guess? nothing at all changed...), but we doubt anyone's going to complain about some extra horses under the hood.
The five-horsepower boost brings the Viper that much closer to the 650-hp Chevy Corvette Z06, not to mention the 707-hp Hellcat, but the Viper's impressive power-to-weight ratio ought to mean it'll have little problem keeping up in a straight line - which is just one of the reasons why Chrysler won't shoe-horn the Hellcat into the Viper: as R&T points out, the supercharged engine is too heavy and the blower makes it too tall to fit in the Viper's engine bay.
