Sprinter Upgrades News and Tech
We have added the DTE Systems Pedal Box to our line of Sprinter products. This is an easy to install plug and play system that optimizes throttle performance and response by optimizing the throttle sensors signal going to the engine control module. This will help the vehicle to reach the wide open throttle position much quicker and therefore realizing the true power potential much sooner. The Sprinter Pedal Box reduces the travel necessary in your accelerator pedal to reach full throttle response and has multiple setting to allow a truly custom throttle tune.
In years past the Bowden cable or throttle cable was used to mechanically connect your accelerator pedal to your fuel delivery system.The Sprinters accelerator pedal position is read by a sensor that then sends a signal that tells the fuel delivery system what to do. This type of system is know as Drive by Wire.
Drive by wire systems are tuned for the standard driver and standard vehicle. The PedalBox will allow you to custom tune the throttle response. Some manufacturers offer similar functions as the PedalBox built into the vehicle via settings like Sport Mode, etc.
Made in Germany.
For off road use in US and Canada.

There is now an extended fender flare kit for all four corners of your Sprinter van. The "Big Flare Kit" is a wider fender flare made specifically for your Sprinter van, and is a full 4 piece kit. These are great for those that want the extra coverage to offer protection from wider wheels and tires.
If we are going to mention flares, we should also mention the popular front fender flare 2 piece kit. The 2 piece kit is not an extended style flare but is designed to match the factory rear flares that North American Sprinters come with from the factory, adding protection, and a nice finished look.
Sprinter models in Europe come with no fender flares. So we also have available a 4 piece European model flare kit that will give you 4 flares. These will match more closely to the North American Sprinter vans rear fender flare, and will also include the front flares to match.

We are pretty excited about 2018! We have taken delivery of our new 2017 4x4 Sprinter 2500 144" High Roof Crew Van and got it added to "the fleet". We wanted to customize our 4wd Sprinter with factory options, and we had to wait six months for the special order Sprinter to come in. But we got the Sprinter set up with the factory options that we wanted, and it was well worth the wait for us. We ordered our new four wheel drive Sprinter from Mercedes-Benz of Salem Oregon. What a great experience! MB of Salem really knows how to put the fun back into buying a new vehicle, and they are a great lead for anyone wanting to purchase a Sprinter.
We may have broken our own record in having the Sprinter off road and on the beach in less than 24 hours after picking it up. Of course, we were gentle on it for the break in. You don't get many clear 65 degree days on the Oregon beach on a weekend in January, so we took advantage of it. Strangely enough there was a mostly identical graphite grey 4x4 144" wheel base Sprinter on the beach already, as well as a 170" wheel base Sprinter surfer set up in the parking lot, and a Class C Sprinter based RV around the corner. We offer many suspension upgrades and products for the Sprinter cab chassis and RV's, but remember to also keep an eye out for new Sprinter 4x4 products, accessories and information at SprinterUpgrades.com.
Thanks to all our customers, supporters, and vendors for another great year. We hope we have been able to help people really get the most out of their Sprinter's so they can enjoy their adventures in style and comfort. 2018 is here and we will continue to work hard at bringing new and exciting things to the Sprinter owner, RV up-fitter, dealerships, and all the rest. We love our job and thank everyone again!

Koni now has front FSD Sprinter Struts available for both the 2500 and 3500 2wd. A 2500 Sprinter rear Koni FSD is also available. This will allow you to have the Koni FSD technology on all four corners of both Sprinter 2wd models. This is the self adjusting Koni technology that offers maximum comfort without sacrificing road holding and stability.
Koni FSD once refered to as Koni gold or golds are no longer being painted gold, they will transition over to a red body for the Sprinters. They will have an FSD sticker on them to help identify that you are getting the FSD Technology for your Sprinter and not the Heavy Tracks Koni with red body.
