Has this been on here???
flamejob by Mike LaVallee...
Pretty awesome link to a sprinter build setup... (not sure if this has been posted)
Only thing missing is their bed / sleeping setup I suppose...
towards the end it showed a pair of thermarests on the floor.
Not to my taste, but then, it isn't my van either.
Here's the new Sprinter.
Headlight redesign. A crease in the hood.
a slightly different grill more in line with the current product line
Looks to me like first time in the power wash you'll lose the silver-dollar emblem
In North America, only the 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6 was offered in the Sprinter, but Mercedes-Benz officials confirm the 2.1-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder will also be sold in our market. In our market, the four-cylinder engine is now standard and paired with the seven-speed automatic, and offers 161 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. Customers seeking more power can still opt for the familiar 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6, which offers 188 hp and 325 lb-ft, and continues to use the older five-speed automatic transmission.
The floor be Fat Matted. Very easy to work with.
Then this showed up:
Pricing is pretty reasonable on this stuff, wonder how well it would work to kill some of the diesel racket in my E350? Anyone using on their engine cover?
I"ve heard that you can tap down on the floor u bolts so the dog house clamps down tighter.
Quiet Ride makes a kit for it too.
Saw this Euro plated VW in the Smokies last month.
Following up on my previous post in this thread about shocks...
I installed the Bilstein's and they made a tremendous difference in the way my van handles. No more dive under braking or wallowing around in turns. In fact the steering and brakes feel much more responsive - I mean dramatically. It no longer bottoms out on the bumps it used to.
I also did the steering stabilizer mod which uses the OEM brackets from an E350 dual wheel chassis (google: ford van steering for details), along with a new Bilstein damper. This mod didn't have as dramatic effect as the shocks but it was still noticeable. The van tends to stay much straighter in its lane and doesn't wander so much. I had just had new tie rod ends and an alignment so I know the steering parts are tight.
Anyway, two worthwhile mods for E series vans - probably the best ones I've done to mine anyway, and makes driving the beast much more enjoyable.
The wheel chocks are built. I bought the pickup bed rack and had my welder buddy make the uprights. I still have to drill for pins and paint. It is 100 inches from the back of the seat to the rear doors.
