Some Euro sprinters are sold with a 1-2" lower ride height than the factory 2WD units in North America. So its not as tall as it might sound. The 4x4s are lifted something like 4" from the NA spec 2WD, so 5" probably would put the sprinter in line with NA 4x4s.

Correct, thats what kit the place has at the moment, but if they have a 3" lift kit available by the time I head to the UK, I would opt for that instead.

I hit my steering wheel with a couple of coats of Krylon. I have a leather cover coming so I didnít worry about the rim too much

Finally installed my auxiliary battery and isolator under the seats. They really made it painless when they designed these vans

Hi Brennwagon, would love to hear about your auxiliary battery install since we have the same year T1N. Any pics? Thank you 😊

I just followed the instructions that I found in this forum. Running the wires through the firewall was simple once you cut the zip tie holding the grommet together. I found that feeding it through from the interior on the top of the loom (but inside the grommet) was easy, the factory put all the channels you need in and easily accessible. I made my own battery tray, beyond that it was pretty standard. Now I just need to connect the accessories to my house battery. Stereo and amp are definitely going on there, as well as the dome lights and eventually some 12V and USB outlets where the ashtrays are in the back (140 PW) I setup a relay array for lights, towing wiring, etc. that Iíll switch over to it too. Iím thinking about putting a switch on the isolator relay to allow me to connect the batteries if I need some extra juice to start

I only took pictures of the battery tray in place, I got into the groove and buttoned everything up before I remembered to take pictures

You might want to think about adding a wooden reinforcement to the inside; that sheet metal is pretty thin, and any flexing will stress your sealant.

Make it the same thickness as the interior ribs.

I have a better picture somewhere, but this is all I can find on the spur of the momentÖ




Cheers,

Greg,

I know. I had a frame for inside made out of 2x2’s but it wasn’t seating properly and would block the stock light from going back properly. I then tried using a scrap price of plywood from bed but it wasn’t the right size. I then tried using strips on 3 sides which would be better than nothing, and give the light enough room. But I ran out of time. I hated not using anything and am a little freaked out about leaks. I’ll be back up in ceiling before too long to insulate and run wires for lights and will reassess the situation. There’s not much I can do now that the lap sealant is on tho. Hoping for the best!!! But worried about the worst.
