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

Chrysler has issued a recall for the V6 version of the 2013 Dodge Challenger (as pictured above in 2012MY) over the possibility of a wiring harness that could short circuit and lead to a fire. Owners of these V6 Challengers built from November 2012 through January 2013 are being urged to contact dealers immediately and, in the meantime, not to drive their cars or park in or near any buildings.
Tue, 16 Sep 2014 16:31:00 EST
Chrysler estimates around 2,500 potentially affected Challengers are in owners' hands, while another 1,900 are still sitting on dealer lots. The total number of recalled vehicles is 4,459.
So far, Chrysler says that seven fires have been reported - none resulting in injuries. The company is instructing vehicle owners to contact their dealer to find out if their vehicle is included in the recall, but owners can also find the build date information of their vehicle by checking the label in the driver's door jamb.
The saga of the Washington state community college hoping to keep its allegedly pre-production Dodge Viper out of the maw of the crusher is going strong. Not only does the school still have the car, but there's a chance that the college might even get to keep it.

The whole situation flared up in March when the South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia, WA, received a notice from Chrysler Group that requested that the school's Viper be destroyed. The automaker had loaned the muscle car to it about a decade ago to use for educational purposes in its auto tech classes. With the Dodge growing long in the tooth, "it is unlikely that these vehicles offer any educational value to students," the company said in its press release on the matter.
However, the college balked at destroying its Viper, despite the fact it had signed a contract with Chrysler Group to do so. The school further claimed that its car was incredibly special because it was a pre-production example and just the fourth one made back in 1992. Although, as we pointed out at the time, the photos of the school's vehicle showed a coupe that looked like a newer Viper GTS.
The Dodge Durango is getting a meaner, more aggressive look as it becomes the latest model from the brand to wear the Blacktop Appearance Package. The upgrades are strictly cosmetic, but they lend the SUV a more assertive demeanor that some buyers like.
Available on the SXT, Limited and R/T (shown above) models, all Blacktop Durangos get black 20-inch wheels, dual exhaust, bod- color fascia and gloss black trim. The grille surround, air dam, mirrors and headlight surrounds all get the inky treatment, as well. The improvements add $1,590 to the cost of the SXT. They come to $1,990 on the Limited but also include HID headlights with LED running lights and a leather interior. Finally, R/T buyers only need to pay $295 for the upgrades. The Blacktop Durango hits showrooms this October.
If you're already in the market for a Durango but want a dash more style with no added performance, the Blacktop might not be a bad way to go. It certainly gives the SUV a bit more edge than it has in stock form. Scroll down to read the full release.
