Due to the unibody construction of the Mercedes Sprinter van, there is not a lot to mount a winch bumper capable of pulling the entire weight of the van. So, our engineers came up with an intermediate crossmember that bolts to your Mercedes Sprinter’s main structural rails approximately 18″ back from the nose of the vehicle. This bumper then mounts to this crossmember plus the front of the Mercedes Sprinter’s unibody frame using a total of six 1/2″ bolts. This distributes impact and winching forces evenly across your unibody frame. As far as we know, this is by far the most serious winch bumper mounting system available for the first generation Mercedes Sprinter van and will ensure that you can rely on this bumper when you need it most.
Other notable features include the four integrated LED pod light mounts, optional grill and headlight protection hoops for increased wildlife protection, and optional front hitch receiver to allow a variety of recovery and gear carrying options.
