Had it for three years. 32,000 mi. Still trying to push it’s Offroad capabilities. Just back from the San Rafael Swell where I did some of the trails on this app.

Hey Greg,

Have you ever come across one of the Iglhaut Allrad Sprinter 4x4 conversions? I think you can put 37" wheels, and its got some half decent articular from what I've seen (at least compared to the typical Sprinter 4x4 platform).

As far as I know there is only one in the Us. You have to ship your 2wd Sprinter where they do the conversion.
Whitefeather in Red Bluff converts Sprinters using Dana axles etc. I drove one of their low top T1n conversions.
It was fine. In retrospect I wish I had gone that route instead of a new 4x4.

Solid Dana axles on a sprinter.... intriguing! Although, with the increased articulation, that could get a bit nerve racking for the high roof sprinters!!

I think I would only do it on a low roof Sprinter. My only concern about the whole setup is the strength of the Mercedes parts that are left in the chain.

I saw the AllRad guy and van at the Adventure Van Expo in Hood River last week. Pretty incredible.

Finally did the CDT with 4 Jeep’s, a e350 Van, a ranger with RTT, a Landy with RTT and my Sprinter.
we started at the Mexican border in Antelope Wells and ended up bailing out near Missoula t because of extreme smoke. So we’ve done 7/8 this of the CDT.

Thanks for letting me know about Whitefeather. Will check out their front bumper options as I live one town away in Chico.
I've read very mixed reviews on the Whitefeather 4x4 conversion...probably would not consider that option. Allrad is legit, not my thing but certainly a very capable Sprinter.
