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 some 2013 Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan and Ram C/V Tradesman vans built between May 10, 2012 and June 7, 2013. These vehicles may have a software error that would cause the wrong side (opposite side) airbags to deploy in a crash. With this defect, a left-side impact would cause the right-side airbag to deploy, etc.

The recall affects 281,500 vehicles in total: 224k in the US, 49,300 in Canada, 2,900 in Mexico and 5,300 in other locations. Chrysler will notify owners of effected vehicles, and reflash the offending occupant restraint control module to resolve the issue. Scroll down to read the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration press release.
Looking to play up its aging three-row crossover, Dodge will introduce a new model for its Journey franchise at next week's Chicago Auto Show. The 2014 Dodge Journey Crossroad will be a new trim level positioned between the SXT and Limited, and it will be distinguished from other Journey models thanks to a handful of styling add-ons.

Plucking a page right out of the appearance playbook of the Ford Explorer Sport, the Journey Crossroad gets a meaner, more SUV-like demeanor. The Journey has often straddled the line between tall wagon and crossover, but this new trim goes a long way toward skewing its visuals toward the utility vehicle end of the spectrum. That's thanks largely to the Platinum chrome exterior trim on its roof rails and side sills, unique fascias, smoked headlights and taillights and, of course, those black 19-inch wheels. Inside, the Journey Crossroad will get a similar treatment, with darker, Liquid Graphite accents throughout the cabin, and the model will also come standard with leather seats (which Dodge says are a new design), and Chrysler's giant 8.4-inch Uconnect screen.
The 2014 Journey Crossroad goes on sale this spring with a starting price of $24,995 (*not including $995 for destination) for the four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive model, but Dodge says that the model will also be offered with more power and capability from the optional 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and all-wheel-drive. Scroll down for the full press release, and check back next week for our live coverage from Chicago.
Chrysler is issuing a recall for the 2009 and 2010 Ram 1500 and Dodge Dakota pickup trucks due to improper installation of the rear axle pinion nut. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 44,300 trucks are affected by the recall, and there have been 12 confirmed incidents including one crash.
The issue on both trucks is that the pinion nut is loosening on some trucks due to a lack of thread adhesive, and it is causing the rear axle to lock up resulting in loss of vehicle control. NHTSA's recall notice says that eight incidents occurred at speeds over 35 miles per hour and most also exhibited driveshaft failures as well since the loss of the pinion nut would cause the gear to separate from the driveshaft. In one complaint, the driveshaft separated from the rear axle and punctured the gas tank.
Chrysler will begin sending out recall notices to affected owners in November, but scroll down to see the official NHTSA notice.
