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

Say what you want about the Dodge Durango, but ever since it came on the scene in 1998, it has occupied its own niche in the SUV market - not too small, not too big, tough, able, not always the best on the road and not always the best off-road. If it were a football player, it would be a tight-end that can block and catch. If it were a hamburger - a double burger with cheese and bacon, but not the Whopper.

As part of a mid-cycle upgrade for what was already a very capable SUV that Chrysler introduced in 2011, and built on the same platform as the Mercedes GL-Class and Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 2014 Durango has gotten some refinements worth noting that have cleaned up its tailoring and toned up its body and powerplant. The result is an SUV that shows itself to be a very good value in a category full of sticker prices that can run away faster than a kid who's been told he has to take ballroom dancing lessons.
Chrysler executives showing us the new Durango made a special point to reiterate that the Dodge brand is not going away, as has been rumored after the company took the Ram and Viper - the cream of the brand - out from under the Dodge umbrella. Turns out Dodge has been the brand attracting the most young people (who knew?) and has a younger average age buyer than Honda. The Dodge brand historically has also attracted buyers who aren't exactly Phi-Beta Cappa, which some companies worry about. Chrysler not so much. Dodge buyers tend to be more the working, high-school-educated, community-college-educated backbone of the work force in America. If they keep coming to Dodge, the Durango is a pretty good piece of hardware to save up for.
Ron Burgundy was put on this planet to do one thing: to read the news. If that ever falls through, though, the womanizing, scotch-drinking anchorman could have a great career just as a Dodge salesman. Bloomberg points out that sales of the 2014 Dodge Durango have rocketed up 59 percent in the first month of Chrysler's funny new ad campaign (which began in early October). But then again, the entire year has been strong for the big SUV, with year-over-year sales increases in the double and even triple digit percentages - including an increase of 117 percent in August.

Of course, the Durango has also received a wealth of new content and a freshened look for 2014 in addition to the Burgundy campaign, and that has to be helping close sales, too. Whether or not the spots themselves are leading to more sales may be a moot point, since they are definitely getting plenty of attention. Almost two months into the marketing tie-up between Dodge and the movie Anchorman 2, Dodge's YouTube videos have received well over seven million views. More than just YouTube shorts and television commercials, the Durango has even received late-night attention, including when Will Ferrell showed up in character as Ron Burgundy on Conan earlier this week.
In the interview, he calls the Durango a "terrible car" that "cracked in half," a joke that probably had Dodge ad execs squirming uncomfortably in their Barcaloungers. Scroll down to watch the Conan interview as well as some of our favorite Burgundy-pitched Durango ads. And there's still plenty of time to "touch" Ron to win a new Durango.
Sometimes a video comes around that just makes you shake your head in disbelief. Take for example these guys from Nebraska in their dually diesel flatbed Ram, doing a smoky burnout. Lighting up the tires is nothing new, but these folks take things a step further by having another guy on an ATV in bed that is also smoking the tires. Finally, people are sitting on a couch in the bed taking the whole show in, as beer cans shoot out of the stacks.
There have been several stories recently about the scourge of rolling coal, i.e., diesel trucks modified to lay down a thick, black smoke screen, sometimes for vaguely political reasons. Whatever your opinion is on it, breathing in this much nasty stuff isn't exactly great for your health. Of course, it turns out that burning rubber is pretty awful, too. Both diesel and tire emissions contain cancer-causing Group 1 carcinogens. Combine them with the cigarette smoking here, and these guys are an oncologist's nightmare. Scroll down to take it all in for yourself. Warning, there is a little explicit language.
