Due to the construction of the front end of the Mercedes Sprinter van, there are only four M8 factory bolt holes per side available to mount an aftermarket bumper. While this is totally inadequate for an offroad winch bumper, some aftermarket bumpers mount to the Mercedes Sprinter using only these mounting points! Instead, our engineers came up with intermediate mounting brackets that bolt to your Mercedes Sprinter’s main structural frame rails approximately 8″ back from the end of the frame. Two 1/2″ bolts per side get run through the van’s frame rails and into these heavy duty brackets. This results in a total of 12 mounting points between this bumper and your Mercedes Sprinter van. While this is certainly overkill, it ensures that impact and winching forces are evenly distributed across your Sprinter’s frame. As far as we know, this is by far the most serious winch bumper mounting system available for the 2nd 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.
